Q&A

Helping people realise their full potential and aspire to lead happier , more contented and meaningful lives with a greater sense of purpose and motivation.

Being able to utilise my skills and capabilities in a dynamic and diverse way to fulfil my own sense of purpose and meaning in life through inspiring, motivating and supporting others on their own unique journey.

As a Psychotherapist/ EMDR/ Counsellor:

Therapy may begin as a daunting experience with each person’s needs and expectations being unique. With this in mind, I draw on my experience working sensitively allowing and being present to whatever you choose to bring into the room.

My approach is warm, compassionate and consistent being based on the understanding that living a more contented life begins when you feel able to share your inner thoughts and feelings with a sense of being understood without judgment.

By using my therapeutic creativity and other modality influences to inform our work together, this enables a collaborative and relational experience to evolve whether our approach is psychotherapy or a blended therapeutic-consciousness coaching process.


As a professional Coach:
Being in a collaborative relationship is a key factor which drives successful outcomes in coaching. I recognise the importance of knowing you have someone alongside you. Someone you feel able to trust, who is non-judgemental and with whom you can share and reflect ideas and feelings which you may not wish others to know. At the same time you need someone who is able to inspire, motivate and champion you to be able to strive for the life you aspire to create.

Through my work as a psychotherapist I understand how the quality of the relationship and the rapport generated is one of the main conditions required for a successful coaching/coachee partnership.

Coaching works on the philosophy that change happens…whether you want it to or not. For many, the best kind of change is the change you drive when you decide to take control of your life and become the person you desire to be in terms of reaching your full potential and feeling fulfilled in all aspects of your life.

I have worked with many modalities ranging from NLP, Hypnotherapy, EFT, EMDR, CBT and Psychodynamic Clinical and Theoretical studies. Each of these has provided me with valuable tools, techniques and above all therapeutic experience which guide and shape the way I work with my clients. My energy is both inspiring and motivating, empathic and sensitive guiding me to intuitively work in collaboration with my clients at each stage of their unique journey.

I am able to offer intense short term work and longer more exploratory sessions depending on your needs and expectations of the work we do together.

Personal coaching “Collaborative, conscious coaching can be seen as an empowering journey of self-discovery which will enable you to operate from a more powerful and fulfilling space than you are currently living” Why choose personal coaching? Personal coaching has the power to create lasting change by challenging and shifting your perspective on life. It provides a framework offering practical tools and solutions, emotional development and support whilst facilitating the process of breaking down the blocks and barriers which prevent you from reaching your personal and professional goals. With this in mind, I offer a dynamic solution focused process which help pave the way towards finding fulfilment, direction and purpose in your personal and your professional life. Why choose me? Being in a collaborative relationship is a key factor which drives successful outcomes in coaching. I recognise the importance of knowing you have someone alongside you. Someone you feel able to trust, who is non-judgemental and with whom you can share and reflect ideas and feelings which you may not wish others to know.

A professional coach creates a safe space where the disclosure of sometimes sensitive and personal information can be shared and thought about without critical judgement, fear of repercussion or it being leaked to others outside the coaching framework. To increase self –awareness. Define who you are committed to being, question what drives your behaviour, how you perceive others and the world around you and the impact your thinking and feeling has on your life. To have a personal champion who celebrates your every move and offers a productive and creative space for you to challenge your thinking, evaluate your actions and also reflect on the emotional impact your decisions may have on your future. To have an objective sounding board. Someone who listens and adds value to your ideas, conflicts or emotional situations without ‘telling you’ what to do next. To generate a positive can do attitude. A coach can inspire and motivate you towards a new way of perceiving and being in the world. To kick-start or re-ignite or implement new ideas, create life plans and clarity over longer term vision. To create energy and momentum which prevents inertia and negative thinking getting in the way of progress. Discover what it is you are striving for. To maintain focus and make you accountable for your actions. To take responsibility for how your life turns out through a clear, planned process which provides a framework for you to achieve your desired outcomes. There are countless reasons for seeking to work with a coach and the spectrum of the work can branch out in many directions depending on the starting point of the coaching focus and the individual’s unique personal challenges. Some of the Key Areas addressed through a professional coaching programme Women in business or corporate organisations Career change or development Leadership Coaching Implementation of a business idea or start-up programme Relationships: current, past and new Increase Self Awareness Work-life balance Emotional difficulties Dealing with Stress and Fatigue Understanding and managing internal Anger Assertiveness difficulties Health and well-being related issues Interpersonal Communication Self -acceptance and self-confidence Creating Identity Defining personal happiness and fulfilment Spiritual development Understanding how to work with Cultural diversity Some of the Key Changes you may experience from working with a professional coach Clarity of Vision, Direction and Purpose Balance – get rid of exhaustion, guilt and the frustration of 'juggling' An experience of reaching Personal Fulfilment Feeling a stronger connection to your Inner Power A growth in Self-Confidence and Personal Presence Better management of Stress, Anxiety, Frustration, Anger and Fear Being able to use your Emotional Intelligence to communicate and relate to those around you creating powerful and targeted results Creation of realistic Goals with clear outcomes and implementation strategies that work The discovery of your own Personal Success Formula Feeling more able to Consciously Create your life rather than reacting to situations and events. What can embarking on a coaching programme create space for? Taking Time Out dedicated for you to focus attention on your unique personal situations for growth and development. Staying focused and generating goals that embody true power and define outcomes that work for your unique personality and life vision. Developing your Emotional Intelligence and learning how to communicate with more empathy and effectiveness. Changing what is not working in your life, adding more of what does and develop the tools to implement critical strategies and tools that will help you take quantum leaps forward in life. Creating your own ideas – truly owning them – and challenging old ways of thinking that may be doing you a disservice in realising your true potential and happiness in life. Discovering what it is you really want to achieve in life. Finding your true passion and purpose. Developing your Identity and becoming the kind of person you want to be. Rooting out and challenging hidden beliefs that have held you back from making progress in your life. Identifying and testing your Values. You will a gain greater understanding around why you think, feel and act the way you do both in business and personal situations. Become empowered to change those values that hold you back or no longer work for the life you want to live. Being 100% in control of your experience throughout the coaching process During the Coaching programme I use a combination of deep enquiry, awareness creation and behavioural change tools and processes to access and elevate your thinking and feeling to a higher consciousness. As the client you are taken on a deep inner journey of exploration to uncover and challenge hidden beliefs, values, behaviour patterns and habits. This is the foundation for creating Your Personal Success Formula. It is these unconscious thought processes which prevent us from accessing our 'inner authenticity' and feeling more fulfilled with life. You will begin to experience more 'freedom of choice' and the ability to consciously create your life moment by moment. Your innate energy (vibrational frequency) is raised and you begin to tap into a whole new way of being. Make contact and let's talk.

Eye Movement Desentitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) EMDR is gaining popularity and has a proven track record of success based on clinical research trials over a long period. The treatment mimics aspects of REM sleep which had now been highlighted as a being a vital process to proecssing memories of all kinds in the brain. It uses this natural function of the body, Rapid Eye Movement (REM), as its basis and was discovered and developed by Dr. Francine Shapiro, the founder of EMDR, who found that just 3 90 minute sessions could alleviate symptoms of PTSD in more than 77% of the patients she treated. The human mind uses REM during sleep time to help it process daily emotional experiences and when trauma is extreme, this process breaks down and REM sleep doesn’t bring the usual relief from distress. The EMDR process is thought to produce an advanced stage of the REM processing. As the brain, via the eye-movement, processes troubling images and feelings, resolution of the issue can be achieved by dampening the power of emotionally charged memories. EMDR therapy is not limited to simply taking symptoms away. It addresses the past, present and future. The goal is to allow the person to achieve a complete state of emotional health. It has also been used to help athletes, performers and executives to achieve a state of “peak performance.” It is important to note that prior to treatment beginning, there must be a strong rapport and relationship developed in the room between the psychotherapist and yourself in order to facilitate a ‘safe environment’ – somewhere your mind can drift to, if, during your treatment, you become distressed at recalling the event. EMDR therapy is offered to clients following at least 3 months of weekly 50min therapy. The treatment can be scheduled for 90min sessions weekly, or intense periods of processing upto 3 or 4 hours in one day followed by a period of rest to allow the processing to be fully worked through. Please contact me for an informal discussions around the uses and benefits of EMDR.
