Clarifying anxious, problematic aspects of your life, you develop a greater understanding of yourself and reconnect with the emotional intelligence you already possess.
I use my expertise and experience to help people address their challenges at a level they can’t reach on their own. I see individuals who feel stuck for a whole variety of reasons. Maybe you are stuck in a past trauma; maybe you are struggling to move forward in your life; or maybe you are stuck in unhealthy behavioural patterns. Whatever brings you to therapy, my speciality is a deep exploration of all the factors that are holding you back. To do this, I develop long-term supportive relationships with my clients and work in an open-ended way, rather than just “fixing” the immediate problem.

I work with couples and individuals on a wide range of issues drawing on a range of approaches including CBT, Person Centred, Emotion Focused Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Life Skills Coaching methods.
It can be a great relief to be able to share your worries and stress with someone. We all struggle at times and as much as we would like to talk to our friends or family we feel unable to let them in. Sometimes we feel stuck, alone and not able to find the solution to the problem that's making us unhappy. Being able to talk openly with someone who can support you, without judgement, as you explore your feelings and the circumstances that are causing you stress can make a big difference. You will start to feel in control, see things more clearly and feel more confident to make the changes you want to in your life.

I am a fully qualified professional Counsellor who has a range of experience from working with children and young people to adults ranging from 18-60+. I provide a safe environment where you can come and explore any issues or feelings you have, without the fear of being judged or told what to do. I believe we all have the tools to solve our own problems or at least find some acceptance around them; sometimes things are just too hazy and jumbled to see clearly. In my own experience I have found that having the space to explore what is going on with another human being outside your personal life can work wonders. I am not saying I can

Let me start by saying I’ve been to see a psychologist; why mention this? Two reasons: firstly, people often ask me this, so I’ll be up front about it. Secondly – maybe why people ask – having been “on the other side of the room”, I have the experience of how hard opening up can be, and how difficult it is to think about “life”. This experience has meant that back on the psych side of the room, I take a genuinely careful and non-judgmental approach to sessions. I begin by focusing on helping people feel comfortable; paradoxically perhaps, this means we are able to get to work on things quite quickly, but importantly, never rushing.

Do you feel stuck, sad, or anxious? Are you an adult struggling with life right now? Or a parent concerned for your child or teen? Life can throw up difficulties at any time, a difficult childhood, trauma, or a relationship breakdown. You or your child may have experienced bullying, difficulties fitting in or managing social and cultural expectations. These experiences can lead to the development of anxiety and low mood, self esteem issues, and other mental health difficulties. Therapy can help you to understand yourself, and the impact of your thoughts and behaviours more deeply.

Life Coaching Counsellors

What can I expect from life coaching?

Clients and coaches will typically start by identifying the problem area(s) that the client hopes to address—then, the coach will help the client brainstorm potential solutions and explore concrete techniques to help the client attain their goals. Coaching is typically short-term and focused on finding solutions in the here and now, rather than exploring a client’s past. In addition to strategies aimed at the client’s specific concerns, coaches may encourage general stress management techniques such as meditation.

Can a life coach help treat anxiety?

Because the majority of life coaches are not licensed clinicians, they are not qualified to diagnose or treat anxiety. Anyone struggling with anxiety or another mental health condition should seek help from a licensed mental health practitioner. However, some coaching clients who struggle with subclinical anxiety report that working with their coach on other problems—such as career dissatisfaction or unhealthy habits—has a positive effect on their anxiety.

Can life coaching be done online?

Yes. While life coaching often happens in person, many coaches conduct sessions over the phone or via online platforms such as Zoom or Skype. Because life coaches are not subject to local licensing regulations in the same way that therapists are, they are able to see clients who live in other locations.

How long does life coaching last?

Life coaching tends to be a shorter-term process than therapy, though it does not always unfold over a specific period of time and is instead based on the coach’s or the client’s preferences. Coaching often takes place over three to 12 months but may be shorter or longer if necessary.
