Articles to help and enlighten

Helpful articles

Every few days, I publish a short article or helpful snippet to my Linked In page and to my blog. I have reproduced them below, for ease of reading. Firstly though, a general piece that can serve as an overview for the articles that follow:

Personal Counselling Issues

One of the most common issues that clients want to address when they meet me, is their ongoing anxiety. The feelings and thoughts involved are emotionally tiring and hold you back from doing what you want, whether that’s pursuing your career goal or going to that exercise class that you booked.

Closely linked with this is improving confidence. Self-doubt and turbulence in thought and behaviour mean that opportunities are not taken advantage of and you feel stuck.

Wanting to be more positive and motivated is another common issue, where you feel drawn towards the negative and find your energy levels are low.

Some clients ‘just want to be happier’ in their life, rather than feeling sad and not being able to clearly understand why.

Relationships feature in this for a lot for clients, who know that they are not giving or receiving love well and worry constantly about it.

Better mental health is a goal for many people.

I will spend time with you identifying what you want and helping you to achieve your outcomes. I do not believe that we need to dig down and analyse your past, something that has often been shown to make things worse for individuals.

Understand Others Better

15.11.2021

A common coaching scenario is the need to work out how resolve an issue between a client and another person.

This is often a work colleague whose approach or manner aggravates the client, for one reason or another.

Last week a client was frustrated by her colleague who she perceived as being an information block. My client summarised the issue as the colleague going to meetings and not passing on information.

We discussed what my client wanted, then moved on to options to achieve this.

Following Aristotle and Covey's 'seek to understand and then be understood' resonated with her.

She rang me later on to say that understanding her colleague's perspective had helped her to negotiate a way forwards.

Result!
