Many people find it helpful when faced with difficult stages in their normal life cycle such as career changes, loss and bereavement or crisis points in relationships.
With my brother diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia nearly 30 years ago, I have personal experience of the family sacrifices and struggles related to the pain and stigma of mental illness. Having since, committing my life to the improvement of people’s emotional fitness and mental resilience, with support from organisations such as SANE and MIND, my own journey has allowed me to discover the true benefits of therapy first-hand. Personal therapy is proving invaluable for people to manage certain difficult or crisis situations in their lives and so transform their problems into major opportunities for personal growth.

“I feel like quite a different person! Dov has taught me to learn from myself what's important in life, who's important in life, and that I'm actually one of the most important people in life. I would say that the work has been tremendous! His time, the way in which he helps you to open up and really evaluate what's going on and also his so many years of his own experience passes over to you. So it oozes confidence for you to then feel that "I can also be like that myself", which has been really, really helpful for me. Amanda Marks, London

My approach, is non-judgmental, confidential, collaborative and empowering using a unique blend of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and the fundamentals of Coaching.
I work with mostly high-achieving millennial professionals, managers & entrepreneurs who feel overwhelmed and exhausted with juggling work/business with their personal lives. This overwhelm is currently causing a feeling of ineffectiveness and a lack of accomplishment or progress in their career and/or business. They have noticed increased procrastination and less productivity in their business or work. This is beginning to affect their bottom-line - with missed deadlines, or unfinished tasks list. It’s also affecting their sleep, mood, and social life. They are increasingly approaching professional ‘burnout’ (chronic fatigue, anxiety, forgetfulness, overwhelm, and indecisiveness). They want practical solutions and techniques that are easy to implement within their current schedule without having to change their work or business lives dramatically. They want a work/life balance that allow them to still lead productive and meaningful impactful live. They value their mental health and need to get better at protecting it. They know that this is directly linked to their ability to perform at their very best, to produce better results in their career and business.

I offer coaching and therapy sessions to individuals and couples.
Hi I'm Susie. I believe that relationships are really important. We encounter lots of different relationships over the course of our lives: friends, siblings, parents, bosses, co-workers…and then there’s the relationship we have with ourselves. Our unique life experiences inform our thoughts, feelings and behaviours; and sometimes we can get stuck in outdated patterns. Common mental health conditions such as: depression, anxiety, OCD, phobias, and addiction, are often symptoms of the effects of adverse life experiences. Treating the underlying causes of whichever symptoms are affecting you can dramatically reduce their impact.

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.
