Counselling is a safe space to hear yourself think out loud about your life, express how you’re really feeling and discuss concerns and worries with someone who won’t judge you. At the Meath Wellness Hub we want to emphasise a non-judgemental, private and respectful atmosphere where the client can learn to reach positive solutions to life’s difficulties. Here the client can discover new ways of coping, work through various issues and develop new skills for positive change.
Coaching is a safe and confidential learning environment to develop self-awareness and take responsibility to engage in the process of self-insight and learning.
