Norman explained: "Life coaching looks forward rather than back. It provides a simple guided method of clearing your mind, thinking positively and taking the right action.
"In six or eight sessions life coaching can help you move from where you are to where you want to be. For people who have experienced a life-threatening illness it can really help build confidence and strength to help to choose what to do in the future."
