Sometimes in life we face challenges with who we are, where we are and where we want to be. Personal development is a form of coaching that focuses entirely on the self, i.e. life coaching for developing the self. Personal development coaching offers the opportunity for self-assessment with a trained professional who will listen deeply and carefully to your experiences. The aim of life coaching is to help individuals achieve their goals and overcome obstacles to facilitate personal growth.


A coach is not focused on making your decisions or judging you but rather assisting you in identifying and recognizing specific issues that may need adjustment in your life. Whilst giving you a fresh perspective, your coach can teach you strategies to help overcome your issues and make more positive decisions to achieve the greatest sense of well-being.


There is no such thing as a “cookie-cutter” format for personal development coaching, thus, each session with Serene Counselling Services is tailored to the individual and their specific needs.


Coaching can be beneficial for anyone who wants to explore their thoughts and/or feelings as well as anyone facing concerns they wish to resolve. Coaching at Serene Counselling Service is open to everyone dealing with a wide range of circumstances and goals. In addition, coaching is not only offered to individual facing challenges but is also very beneficial for individuals seeking greater clarity and confidence in their lives.

Whilst seeking our personal development coaching you will find yourself in a warm, safe and dependable environment which will allow you to explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions. In our first session, we will talk about your circumstance and the goals you desire; this will bring a clear focus to the future sessions. During your coaching sessions we aim to build a trust-worthy and meaningful client-coach partnership. Together with your coach you will assess your emotional wellbeing and life progress which will allow you to explore your happiness, state of mind and whether you are achieving your goals. This focus on self-assessment will allow you to understand and recognize your strengths and weaknesses but also where you want to be in life and how to get there.


From this, you and your coach will establish a strategic action plan with goals in order to help you overcome barriers and make the necessary positive changes in your life. Your coach will not only provide you with cognitive behaviour techniques and strategies to apply to your day-to-day life but will also provide continuous support and motivation to ensure you stay focused and motivated to achieve your goals. Our overall aim is to help our clients to challenge their understanding and belief systems of their world and identify how to improve their ways of thinking, believing and living to live a positive and fulfilling life.


Each person will have their own unique experience and outcome from coaching. This may include but is certainly not limited to: self development and enhancement, a greater understanding of the self and others, a clearer perspective of life and future goals and the ability to overcome life changing situations and handle the day-to-day stresses of life and much more.
