The Counselling & Psychotherapy Centre
23 Bath Road
Need to talk? Whatever is troubling you, I can help you with it. The problem might be a crisis, loss, low confidence or lack of direction. Whether you’re feeling anxious or low, lost or overwhelmed, we can talk it through.
I help you understand who you are, what your purpose is, and how to really make the most of your life. We do this together - the coaching relationship will enable you to explore yourself, and create a personal development plan to improve your relationships, career, finances, confidence, self-belief, work-life balance or to deal with stress, anxiety or depression.
Working together will change how you feel, think and act. We can tackle a single issue, an area of your life, or work more widely and holistically.
Coaching is different for everyone, but the process may include clarifying your purpose and what you want, considering how to get there and developing the qualities you will need to make that journey.
How it can help you
Personal coaching focuses on what you want to achieve. It also helps you deal with difficult times in your life, periods of change or uncertainty. This might include:
- Finding purpose and fulfillment day to day
- Exploring and discovering solutions for difficult situations
- Making personal or career choices
- Finding the balance between work, family and self
- Improving your self-confidence and self-belief
How we go about this depends on what you want. We can look at issues from the perspective of creative problem solving, using simple exercises to generate ideas and make decisions. If the issues you want to bring are more fundamental, such as 'Who am I?' and 'What do I want from Life/Work/Relationships?' then over a few sessions we might:
- Work to identify what motivates you, values and purpose that make you get out of bed each day
- Think about what this implies for how you want to live your life and the goals you might want to achieve
- Look at what stops you achieving what you want, blocks in the road and that nagging inner critic who sabotages you
- Consider how small steps and positive daily habits will slowly take you towards bigger goals
