Professional Support that Makes a Difference
taking your life forward
Individual and family counselling
Life can be hard and maintaining your wellbeing in the face of stresses, changes and losses is challenging. Speaking with an experienced and skilled counsellor can provide new perspective, emotional relief and practical strategies to move forward. My counselling is informed by a number of theories of change including Solution Focused Brief therapy, Positive Psychology, Narrative Therapy and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). These approaches share a belief that focusing on your strengths, on what’s going well and on what you want to be different, rather than on what’s not going well, can lead more directly to solutions and positive change.
My counselling is also practical and pragmatic and you will leave each session with some insight, changed perspective, agreed strategies to try - away from therapy - and a way forward. We will also make an agreed plan for any future meetings.
Professional Supervision & Coaching
Do you feel like you are always adding new tasks to your to-do list but never crossing anything out? Does your work - life balance feel out of control? Do interpersonal challenges in the workplace tension leave you feeling anxious & overwhelmed? Do you struggle to say no to demands on you and your time? Does fear and worry dominate your day? Professional supervision can help guide and inspire you to take charge & to achieve more of your personal and professional goals. Get in touch today and start taking control of your life with my supervision & coaching tools and techniques.
