About me

As a Psychologist, Counsellor and Coach , I specialise in a range of holistic therapeutic interventions including psychotherapy and behaviour modification towards positive wellbeing.

These tools and techniques include one-to-one skills development, coaching,counselling and networking. Coaching employs the use of techniques such as observing, listening and questioning to support the client and to identify solutions and actions in line with the client’s values. The most important part of this work is to encourage a ‘commitment to action’ ethos and develop lasting personal growth and change using goal setting and action plans, whilst identifying barriers towards change.

Outside of my private practice, I work within a mental health team at a university offering wellbeing support to students. Through the university I am completing a PhD in Psychology, researching the connection between mindfulness, compassion and the body. I also guest lecturer on the MSc Mindfulness and Compassion course at a local University.

12 years experience within the below services:

-Mental health services (universities)
-MIND - the national mental health based service
-Schools in the Midlands
-YMCA

Accessibility

Wheelchair-accessible premises

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a life coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the life coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
