Are you seeking therapy because you want to make your life better? It feels like life has always been and uphill battle for you and never felt easy. Anxiety and fear seem to be constant companions that you live with. Maybe you work offshore, a traditionally male environment where feelings and emotions are a sign of weakness and could harm your career. Perhaps your relationships have always been difficult, you struggle to express your feelings and have your voice heard. Perhaps the trauma that you experienced growing up has left you unable to trust people and what they say. You feel stuck and overwhelmed. You would like answers?

As a COSCA Accredited person-centred counsellor I provide a place of safety and confidentiality where you can discuss openly what is troubling you, a place where you’ll be listened to. It may be that you are stressed, angry, frustrated, anxious, depressed, feeling lost or simply stuck, not sure what to do or how to express how you feel. Maybe you have suffered a loss or a bereavement and need help to find your way of moving on. I will be accepting and non-judgemental of what you have to say and work with you to help you find your answer.

Hello I'm Gulli, I wish you a warm welcome. Perhaps you are grappling with a situation or behaviour that feels out of your control, or struggling with anxiety, depression, addiction or past trauma; perhaps you have lost your spark for life, and feel a deep inner home-sickness for more meaning and a sense of purpose. Whatever your unique story, seeking help takes immense courage, and at least a flicker of hope that you have the inner resources to make it through. I believe that you do.

There are many points in life when we feels cast adrift, unsure of how we feel or why we feel it. Unsure of how to move forward from our past or even from our present. Much of my work revolves around these moments, supporting my clients to find the right way forward. I work in an integrative, trauma informed way which allows me to tailor the way we work together and hold a compassionate safe space to collaborate within. I believe connection is a core human need and that no one should feel alone with their problems.

How to describe the massive impact of loss and grief on our hearts, minds and daily life? The weight, chaos and turmoil of grief is a common experience which plays out uniquely in each of us. We lose interest in just about everything; nothing seems to matter. We're often frightened, wondering whether how we feel today we'll still be feeling in the distant future. We're often angry, intolerant of others. We seek so many reassurances... We don't want to let go of our grief because it's connected powerfully to the one we love and miss. How can we learn to let grief share our life? How can we understand it? How can we keep afloat?

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.
