‘21 Certificate of Excellence

If you need a highly experienced life coach, or psychotherapist or business consultant, I am the person to speak to. My life coaching and psychotherapy skills benefit from extensive training and experience in the human givens approach to psychotherapy. This means I follow the guidelines laid down by the ethical committee of the European Therapy Studies Institute. So, any coaching I offer has to be highly effective and either evidence based or firmly rooted on the latest scientific research findings from psychology and neurobiology. This powerful body of research is changing the face of coaching by giving coaches and counsellors real insights into exactly how peoples’ brains and emotions really function. These new insights have given rise to a wealth of techniques, ideas and concepts that have a genuine and swift impact on a client's health and wellbeing. You can expect to get some tangible help and relief in the very first session. For your convenience and for safety during the COVID-19 outbreak, I conduct my psychotherapy or coaching and stress management sessions on-line. If you would like to learn more by all means ring me for a preliminary no-obligation chat (free of charge) and to make an on-line appointment. In the business context I specialize in helping business people improve their careers and profits. For over twenty-five years I have generated consistently successful results for my clients using state of the art techniques from the legendary Toyota Production System as well as powerful management training and coaching. As a result I usually help a client multiply their profits within a one to two year period. My most popular service is my team planning system that gets the whole team to generate a wave of improvements across the business that transforms productivity and profit growth. Contact me - Jeremy Old MBA BSc HGDip for a no obligation chat and I will be delighted to tell you more.

What do you love most about your job?

I get a real buzz when I can relieve someone's suffering. It is a great feeling to help them clear their thinking, ease the stress of their current situation, shift their world view and help them move towards their goals.

In the business context, I love inspiring enthusiastic employee engagement in the business improvement process. People find improving their working lives is both exhilarating and fun. And as a result of the business improvements the enterprise makes a lot more money as well. So that makes the boss happy.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Discovering that I had a talent for helping people. This success is partly due to my long experience in business but also training in modern psychotherapy. Psychology has moved on a lot in recent years and these new ideas and techniques enable me to provide quick relief with all kinds of stress related problems.

Why should our clients choose you?

My coaching skills and techniques are based on a new scientific understanding of how the brain functions especially under stress. This means I help people sort out all kinds of life changing problems such as depression, relationship difficulties, anger management, bad habits, phobias, career planning and so on. The methods I use enable clients to improve in rapid time. Very often we can achieve real and lasting improvement in one or two sessions.

Similarly, the business improvement techniques I use are also very scientific and are based on the Japanese Hoshin Kanri system. This is tried and tested by Toyota and world class companies such as Sony and Intel. We can achieve massive jumps in productivity and company performance without having to spend on capital investment and so on.

Counselling FAQs

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.

  • Divorce.

  • Redundancy and work issues.

Absolutely! Many Counsellors provide their services remotely via an online video call or the telephone. Not only is it more convenient, but it's also the preferable option for many people who would feel more comfortable holding the session from the comfort of their own home.
