Some people have strong desire to change but feel helpless or surrounded by doubts, at that time they need helping hand to smaller the gap towards their dreams.A life coach helps them to overcome all obstacles also enrich mind power.
psychologist or Therapist?
While counseling refers to terms dealing with past events or trauma client is going through.Therapy session usually dwells on the past healing. This is a long-term process in which health care professional works with a client to diagnose or resolve problematic beliefs and behaviors.
