I regulalrly 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.

Why Professional Coaching Works


Why Professional Coaching Works

I asked a client recently what role the processing and reflecting in her coaching sessions had on her life.

She replied, that along with discussing options, she felt that a void in her thinking is filled through her coaching work. P added, that she feels more in control of the decisions that she is making rather than \ “pootling along, drifting into the currents created by others”.\ I love this metaphor and will keep it in my own mind.

This sense and perspective of being more in control (as far as we can be, in my opinion) improved her success with work and personal goals.

P added that the mentoring work which we do, where she asks for advice, gives her tactics and strategies to apply. These can be noted for future and she can reference the ones that work best for her, in any context and scenario.

I coach, counsel and mentor individuals because I am passionate about helping people to develop their own unique self, to think, to be, and to feel better for it. We discuss habits that work and use psychological tools to reinforce these, for example belief change work.

Get in touch to discuss your wants and needs.

Big love,
