Finding Your

Way Forward

About Me

I’m Yannick. A registered Clinical Counsellor and Therapeutic Coach. I hold a Masters in Counselling having worked with diverse clients therapeutically since 2022. I also have 10+ years of coaching and mentoring experience of clients in media organisations, corporate environments and the creative and performing arts.

My areas of expertise and interest are: life stages and transitions, personal identity and identity conflicts, and the grief, trauma and loss often experienced in family life and in work/social/religious institutions. I love to learn from and work with clients from all backgrounds, cultures, faith perspectives, and sexual and gender identities.

What is counselling?

Counselling is a service where you can speak with a trained and empathetic professional to discuss any area(s) of your life where you are experiencing difficulty. A good counsellor will hold space for you to discuss difficult things, express emotions and find your path towards flourishing.


and Healing

If you’re seeking counselling to assist you through a period of grief, loss, anxiety, depression, past trauma or present difficulties; it’s important to work with a counsellor you trust and with whom you feel comfortable. Counselling is offered for 8-10 sessions as required by you, the client. At Big Light, I offer indroductory pricing on initial sessions so you can determine if my style will suit you to reach your goals.

What is therapeutic coaching?

Counselling and coaching are equally important in personal development. What distinguishes them from each other is their focus: counselling assists you in unpacking and understanding your emotions and mental health concerns, while coaching helps you plan for personal growth and pursue professional or artistic ambitions.

If you're facing a challenging phase in your life or dealing with mental health issues, pure counselling might be the better option for you. Coaching, on the other hand, is most beneficial when you're aiming for a specific goal. When I work with you as your coach, our focus is on setting and achieving those goals. My coaching techniques include motivation, encouragement, and honest reflection to help you stay on track to reach your desired destination.

At Big Light, my primary objective is to help you unlock your potential. By offering a blend of coaching and counselling, I personalise a tailored approach to your growth. This blend ensures a flexible and comprehensive experience focused on your needs. Whether you're pursuing concrete goals or seeking deeper self-awareness, this approach guides you through every step of your journey towards self-discovery and progress. Through therapeutic coaching, we seamlessly integrate the personal and professional aspects of life, allowing you to flourish in both domains.
