How did Coaching by Dear Chereen start?

Throughout my journey I have always had a desire to help others help themselves. I started my coaching journey at the young age of 19 and passionately enjoyed supporting others. As someone that has always valued mental health, I realize the importance of becoming a counselor in order to really support others through the tools and knowledge I obtained. As a result, I acquired my masters in counseling and continued/continue to acquire certifications to aid me as a coach as well. There is so much reward in supporting people and seeing them move forward or get through circumstances that are difficult. The coaching provided is in Arabic and English.
