Many people have been helped by a psychologist at some point in their lives.
Counselling is about enhancing your emotional intelligence by replacing habits, ways of thinking, and behaviours that are no longer useful. High emotional intelligence has positive effects in many areas of life including wellbeing, health, and better relationships.
In the workplace, or even in life, coaching is about learning the most effective approach to managing uncertainty, and developing a sense of your own strengths and values.
Emotional intelligence has two components - individual and interactive. The individual components, related to yourself, have been described as having the ability to identify and handle your emotions, the ability to motivate yourself towards your own goals. The interactive components or social aspects of emotional intelligence include the ability to feel empathy for others and social skills.
