So thinking of getting a couch as I know itís important to learn off someone better than yourself but Iím unsure where to look or how much it will cost can someone direct me please
I would strongly recommend sticking to free resources online or paying for access to a coaching website. Paying for one on one coaching for a micro-stakes player will almost never make sense, because you're not going to increase your winnings by enough to pay for it. Actually, paying for coaching could be the thing stopping you from moving up the levels.
"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts." - Winston Churchill
If you would like more material I have lots of free content on my website as well.
As for coaching you should be able to find someone for $20-50/hour at the microstakes and if you have a solid foundation (see the playlist above) you'll be able to get great value from it.
I do think it's important to get a solid foundation before getting a coach, books and training videos/courses are a great place to go.
Another very solid training course that's very inexpensive is From the ground up by Peter Clarke. Here's some more info on it, and I promise you it is a GREAT investment both per $ you invest and per hour you invest watching the videos
