As a tree needs healthy roots to flourish, so we need a healthy ‘self’ in order to thrive. Supporting you in personal healing and development.
Does it feel sometimes that despite your best efforts, you still get stuck on repeat with the same old issues?
Perhaps life is good? You have many things going well in your life but have a specific goal/issue which you are stuck on.
Have you spent years or even decades not quite getting to the root of things, not quite being able to get where you want to be?
I can help. I have an endless curiosity around how our minds work, how we struggle and how we can break those cycles to find new, healthier ways to cope
with life’s challenges, achieve our goals and feel satisfaction and joy in our lives.
We will work together to find an approach that works uniquely for you. I will help you find a way through that supports your personal goals.
I have a specific personal and professional interest in supporting and advocating for ADHD and Autism.
I offer a confidential and comfortable space to talk. We start from where you are now and think about what you would like to achieve from our work together.
We can explore your situation in a way that leads to fresh perspectives – and perhaps a new understanding of yourself and your world. Our work together is rooted in curiosity and compassion.
With fresh perspectives, come fresh ideas, and momentum. Improving relationships and increasing confidence, I help you develop practical strategies to help you find the changes you are looking for.
Coaching enables you to grow in all areas of your life. We can have many different goals in life; relationships, parenting, career goals, confidence, health, finance. We are often held back in our goals due to personal blockers that are hidden to us. Unconscious reactions and biases developed over a lifetime of exposure to a wide variety of experiences. My unique position as a therapist and coach means I can help you more deeply understand yourself and where those blockers might exist. In developing this deeper understanding of ‘you’ we can then work together to create goals that are suited to you. Goals that feel achievable and longer lasting change that is sustainable.
Life can feel so challenging when you feel stuck in your issues. Lack of confidence might be holding you back at work or in your relationships. Anxiety, depression, stress, anger, procrastination and more, can really get in the way of daily life as well as holding you back from your future dreams and goals. We want fulfilling relationships but we get trapped in repeated patterns of conflict that erode rather than improve our connections with loved ones. We can feel unheard but lack the skills to make ourselves understood and valued by others. Perhaps we also struggle to value ourselves. That negative inner voice can exacerbate feelings of low self-worth, damage relationships, hinder personal development and leave us in a position of poor mental health.
I use my training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to help address the immediate needs of what is happening ‘right now’. Practical skills to help reduce anxiety, depression, stress, overthinking, anger, phobias and more. For some people, this is all that is needed and I support clients on this basis. But it can be increasingly beneficial to then work together more deeply to understand ‘you’.
In the same way that we learn a language in order to communicate, our life experiences teach us a language of identity; who we are, how we react, how we think. I use my experience to help us explore ‘you’ more deeply. We can then identify the things that are causing the problems in your life.
Developing new habits, prioritising self care and self awareness, understanding how we relate to others. All these help you cope more easily with life’s challenges and find greater happiness.
I offer session both online and face to face which means I can support regardless of where you are based.
