We offer a combination of Counselling and coaching. In the following areas:
Relationship / marriage counselling.
We believe that in order to help, individuals, couples or families effectively, the counsellor/coach needs wide and varied experience and skills. Being able to work with the areas listed above allows us to look at the whole picture and find a way forward for you, remembering that your situation is unique. Counselling has it's place, but very often people like and respond better to a combination of counselling and coaching. We will never tell you what to do but, the ability to combine these two approaches in a way tailored to your situation is often the most effective.
1. In couple counselling, after doing some initial work, which may typically involve improving communication, underlying factors may also be contributing: such as lack of career fulfillment, difficulty being assertive or lack of confidence. Identifying these and including some life coaching in these areas can be key in improving the relationship, even though these are often not the presenting problem.
2. A step parent may be having difficulty with their partners adolescent child/young person, threatening to cause a break down between parent and partner. We have the experience and flexibility to work effectively with the adolescent as well as with the parent and step parent, which may be essential in finding a way forward. It could be that the adolescent is poorly motivated and not in education or training, causing tension in the home. If so career support and guidance and motivational input would be included.
The input will be tailored to you and those involved but will generally include the following:
> A comprehensive look at all the factors involved.
> Help to identify areas that need to change in order to agree a planned way forward.
> Motivational work, with a positive forward looking approach.
> Cognitive Behavioural Input (CBT) A well proven approach that helps us see our own barriers and deal with relationship challenges and life.
> Work on effective communication, including being assertive (not aggressive or passive)
> Support and guidance on achieving the goals that have been agreed.
What do you love most about your job?
My current career which started in 1991 has given me the opportunity to work with and help them to thrive. I find this rewarding, often challenging and never boring.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I find I am motivated and work most effectively when I have the flexibility to work in the way I feel is best for my clients. While I very much value the experience and training I had in working for the Local Authority and Child and Adolescent Mental health, I felt my combination of skills and experience would be best applied through my own business.
Why should our clients choose you?
>One size doesn't fit all:
In my experience many counsellors, coaches, therapists, have a narrow field of experience and approach that may not be a good fit for the client/clients/families they work with. I am able to offer a holistic approach that looks at the big picture and am able to be creative in how I help.
> Cost effective:
My charges are reasonable and I aim to make myself redundant ( in your case at least) moving things on quickly with a solution focused positive approach.
I come from a background which brought me into contact with a diverse range of people, I worked in retail prior to re training in my early 30's (1991) making me well grounded, not a text book person, but someone with life experience who has a few battle scars and learned things a long the way and found out that I can relate to people in a natural way that is effective. When employed in the field I gained experience in working with, children, young people and parents including for the Child and Adolescent mental health service , CAMHS.
