‘19 Certificate of Excellence

My name is Bianca, I'm a fully qualified and accredited Life, Health & Relationship Coach, I have qualifications in Counselling, N.L.P. (Neuro Linguistic Programming), Nutritional Therapy and Psychology. I specialise in helping clients just like you, find clarity, overcome stress , anxiety and depression (and act more positively when life can appear overwhelming). Poor thinking styles can result in debilitating anxiety, phobias and a feeling of isolation. When you come and see me, you will notice I use person-centred counselling to help support you in identifying and 'coming to terms' with your feelings and emotions. When you feel ready, we can get to the root of your difficulties and identify your coping mechanisms. You will develop clarity on your unhelpful responses and find healthier, more productive ways to respond. We can then work together to find new ways on managing your life. The advantage of my approach is that it combines between counselling and coaching to helping you come connect with your feelings, and then we can find a better way to respond to them. We will identify what you ‘do’ want instead of focusing on what you don’t want. The positive change in your life will also help you improve communication and develop more productive relationships with partners, friends, family and colleagues. Relationship coaching can be with partners, parents, children or siblings. Often being confident and able to express your feelings and wants in a relationship can be difficult. To effectively communicate with others it can be helpful to improve the communicate with yourself first, so that you know what you're feeling and then you will be in a better position to share this with a partner. If trust has been lost or there has been a long period with poor communication then you can be left feeling lost and isolated. I help you rebuild the vision for what you want and then together we build a plan for a better and stronger relationship. I have worked with hundreds of clients to help them improve their life. My reviews on Facebook and Google are from a few clients who have been struggling with their life and found life coaching worked for them. They were in a position, just like you are in now, where they knew something wasn’t ‘right’ but wanted to do more than just talk about it, they wanted to ‘do’ something about it. Life coaching gives you the tools and actions that you can take to come to terms with the life challenges that are getting you down, and discover a new, more positive way of living. I’m warm and welcoming and my office is light and airy in Plymouth City Centre. I work during the day, evenings and Saturday morning. I offer a free 30 minute consultation where you can have an informal chat about your needs and you can find out more about me. If you want to continue after that, sessions costs start from £50.

What do you love most about your job?

What I love most is helping my clients achieve there goal. How often in life do we get asked "what do you want in life?" But when you take time out to really focus on yourself, where you want to be, you can then start building a plan to get there. I love helping clients like you to see what you can do to prioritise your health and wellbeing and also overcome the obstacles that can get in the way.

I think it's amazing that just by taking time out their lives to work ON their lives, ordinary people like you and me can start leading extraordinary lives.

Most of us get caught up in the day to day 'stuff' and then, sometimes, we realise something isn't quite right. I believe it's OK to say when your not OK, it just means it's time to take stock of where you are right now and learn new ways to get what you want.

What inspired you to start your own business?

In 2007 I began to feel the ill effects of stress. Combined with a high-pressure job, I rarely exercised, nor did I eat a healthy, balanced diet and often had a couple glasses of wine in the evening to help me ‘de-stress’. I was suffering digestive problems, fatigue, insomnia and hated going into work. I just shrugged my shoulders and got on with it, but I was exhausted and tired of feeling that everyday was a fight. My emotional, mental and physical health was affected.
Sound familiar?
Over the next 5 years I became more ill and unhappy. I received a diagnosis of anxiety, depression chronic fatigue syndrome and I had developed an unhealthy relationship with alcohol. My relationships at home and work deteriorated as well as the relationship with myself.
After 2 years of feeling pretty miserable, I barely recognised myself. I had lost my confidence, self-worth and any sense of control.

I was sick and tired of feeling… sick and tired.

I couldn’t change other people, I couldn’t make my partner or boss become supportive or appreciative and I couldn’t make my 6 stone weight gain disappear.

After an incident where I collapsed, during the next weeks in bed, I made a decision to make changes to myself – from the inside out.

I had difficulty finding suitable support from local services and the little support that was available was oversubscribed and had long waiting lists. Traditional counselling didn't help me.

I started researching , reading medical papers, self help books and started seeing a life coach.
Now I had realised I had purpose and improved my self-worth, I noticed my physical and emotional health was improving - I saw amazing results – not only in me but also those around me. I then realised I wasn’t the only person in the world struggling with the pressures of work, relationships, being a carer and the pressures of life.

I spent many years retraining to become a re-training in Counselling, Coaching, Nutritional Therapy and NLP (Neuro Lingustic Programming) and enjoy continuing my training to expand my field of knowledge.

Your expert counsellor will be able to advise you on the full range of services available and will be able to advise on what is most suitable. Use Bark to get free quotes and schedule an appointment today.

At your appointment, you will be encouraged to talk about your feelings and emotions with a trained counsellor who will listen and support you without judging or criticising.
The therapist can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes and find your own solutions to problems. However, they will not usually give advice or tell you what to do. The counsellor might sum up what they understand you have been saying so that they can help you to form a plan of action.

Counselling can take place in a number of ways. These include:

  • Face to face session

  • Group session

  • Phone session

  • Email session

  • Online through live chat services or video conferencing software

You may be offered a single session of counselling, a short course of sessions over a few weeks or months or a longer course that lasts for several months or years.

It can take a number of sessions before you start to see progress but you should gradually start to feel better with the help and support of your counsellor.

You can be confident that any of the Bark local counsellors listed will give you a reliable and efficient service to help you feel better.

You could look for counsellors that are accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) which means that they have met the PSA’s required professional standards to practise.

Before you choose a counsellor, you could read testimonials and read details of the issues they can help with on their website.

You could also look at their profile page on Bark and check out reviews from past customers too.

Counselling can help with many issues. These include the following:

  • Mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety or eating disorders.

  • Physical health conditions such as infertility.

  • Difficult life events such as a bereavement, a relationship breakdown or work-related stress.

  • Dealing with difficult emotions such as low self-esteem or anger.
