ABSOLUTELY NOT NOT NOT a life coach ! Anyone belonging to the phony group of life coaches who pretended to be competent to treat Bipolar Disorder ought to be arrested and prosecuted. They are NOT members o any recognizable health profession, have NO proper training in diagnosis or therapy. Far too many are dangerous quacks.
See a psychiarist, who can prescribe meds, because mood stabilizing drugs may be life-saving. Ask the psychiatrist if a psychologist might also be helpful

Definately a psychologist or counsellor. A life coach has very little or no professional training. And it' s a very " new"  practise in South Africa.
