One-to-one online counselling or coaching: supporting you in times of crisis, challenge or change.               

For many years I worked in a range of educational settings guiding adults and young people to achieve personal and professional development through learning. I often found myself supporting them in times of personal difficulty or crisis and enjoyed collaborating closely with them, assisting their discovery of ways to move positively through those challenging moments.

I decided to undertake further professional training and I now enjoy working in counselling and coaching where my focus is more explicitly on supporting individuals in times of difficulty, crisis, or challenge, helping them to find ways to thrive, to remove personal barriers to change or growth, or to identify and fulfil their aspirations.

my apProACH & experience

My approach

Who we are and the way we experience life is different for each of us and because of this the kind of support we need at challenging times differs from person to person. For this reason, I tailor my practice to suit the individual needs of each of my clients, drawing upon and integrating a range of strategies, always in agreement with my client and in line with their preferences.

 

Perhaps you don't know exactly what it is that's preventing you from living the way you'd like to, or maybe you feel you know exactly what it is you would like to address. It may be that you feel the need to tackle some long-standing issues, or perhaps it's current challenges, recent stresses or future-based anxieties which are troubling you.

 

Whatever your reason for seeking support it's important to me that in our work together there is a sense of trust and collaboration, that you feel safe, comfortable and relaxed about talking to me openly. In this way, we can work together to find ways for you to move forwards, to grow, to bring about change and to thrive.
