Thank you for taking time to read my profile, i hope it gives you an brief idea on how I would work with you and answer any intial questions you may have.
I am an experienced ‘Life Coach’ using a wealth of experience to support individuals achieving realistic and positive outcomes in their life journey.
Developing and building self esteem and confidence is important for all of us, my work has involved working with many people to overcome challenges in relationships, career, and general life and career direction.
My style is open and relaxed, and create a safe enviroment to be able for you to speak about yourself and your challenges without you experiencing without any judgement or critism. I consider myself a good listener, open and engaging and enjoy working with individuals and couples on the journey through life.
I assist individuals exploring;
1. Relationships, intermacy, passion, communcation, conflict resolution (Individual & Couples)
2. Self esteem building
4. Positive thinking
6. Living with Depression
7. Understanding anger and learning to deal with it
8. Taking a breath and review all aspects of life including career and educational goals
9. Dealing with anxiety and depression
I am able to work with individuals and couples helping them work through the challenges in their relationships. This has helped many couples face difficult times, help rebuild trust, develop postive behaviour, allow an open and safe way to discuss with each other what they need and expect in thier relationship.
My background as a Social Worker, working with vunerable children, young people and adults has given me a wealth of experience and tools.
I am very experienced working with young people and able to offer support in many aspects of the journey into adulthood.
My approach is strength based using various skills and theoretical and practical excercises to enable individuals to explore where they have been, where they are and what direction they would like to continue in life.
Q & A
1. How do we begin?
Once contact is made, i like to have a phone call conversation as to introduce myself and get a breif background to what you are experiencing. This enables me to see if I can assist and more importantly for you to ask any questions you may have.
Following this, if agreed that you wish to go ahead, we arrange our first meeting, either face to face or online using ‘Zoom”. The initial is a chance for us to get to know each other and for me to get to know your specific needs/challenges and then this forms the future sessions.
2. How long are the sessions and how many will I need?
We allow an hour for each session. The number of sessions is continually reviewed as to ensure it is helping and we are on track to meet what is required. You are not tied into a contract of how many sessions you have, and you can extend or end the sessions at any time.
3. Do you use online sessions of face to face?
I am happy to use either although face to face is dependent on your location and currently I would visit you. I am based in Woking, Surrey. I have no facitlity to have you come to me at present although I am working on this.
I use Zoom, this has been very succesful with most people who choose this method and can be more flexible with times, days etc. If you have not used Zoom before, i am happy to help you set up and go through it with you.
4. Are my sessions and information confidential?
Yes, all records are electronically stored and password protected. I am the only person that has access to your files. Realistically information I hold is mainly our discussion points. I fully comply with data protection rules - GDPR.
My only provision to confidentiality is, I you are at risk to yourself or to others, this is reinforced when working with individuals under 18.
5. How much does it cost?
This is agreed during our intial telephone conversation, however i do send an estimate to you beforehand.
6. How do I pay for the sessions?
I ask for payment at the start of each session as not impact on your session ending. I accept cash however most people pay prior to the session using bank transfer.
I am open to as many questions you have, please ask away, it is important that we build a relationship based on trust and openness.
