(from Bret)


"When I worked as a ship’s officer, the compass was an essential piece of equipment. It is used to take bearings of fixed reference objects so that a current position can be ascertained. It is used to plot and follow a course to arrive at a determined destination. We would check the compass regularly to see that we were making progress in the desired direction."

Sometimes in life, we get “off course” and there’s a need to take bearings to figure out where we really are in the journey. Sometimes we need to adopt a “course correction” to get back on track. Often, we need to make reference to the compass to make certain that we are headed in the right direction.


“Compass” offers both counselling and coaching services. What’s the difference between the two?

Counselling is offered to deal with problems—what is detrimental or debilitating.


Coaching is offered to discover possibilities—discerning directions and destinations.


If you want to determine whether counselling or coaching would be of benefit in
your journey, call Lynne (226.931.4738) for a free assessment.
