They serve different purposes and are not mutually exclusive. If you have recently experienced a particularly painful or traumatic life event and are finding it hard to function regularly, we recommend seeking out a counselor so you have someone to talk to and to call in case of emergency.
But we'd also recommend giving one of our coaching programs a try. They are low-commitment as they only take around 15-minutes a week, and they can help you to set a meaningful goal, while increasing your energy and motivation—all of which are critical to healing and finding meaning in life again! Combining them will give you a richer experience and help you to build a life you love even faster.
