I am a qualified psychosynthesis counsellor, coach and executive coach with 14 years experience. I am a member of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council, the Institute of Leadership and Management, a Fellow of the RSA and the Society of Authors. I am also the founder of The Hysterectomy Association, an online social enterprise providing information and support to women with gynaecological health challenges. I have written eight books including two international best-sellers, self-published seven and edited a further seven.
I understand deeply the courage it takes to begin a personal transformation journey and wish you well as you take the first steps.
My passion is empowering others to take back control of their life, health and well-being, and being a counsellor and coach means I am privileged to witness the powerful changes that happens when clients face their challenges and improve their lives.
I offer you a safe, confidential space to explore what matters most to you, where you can talk about what is causes you pain, as much as what interests and excites you.
Whether you choose counselling or coaching, your happiness is the goal I help you work towards and generally the difference in therapeutic style will depend on the issues you want to address. Coaching is very much about getting things moving, working towards a goal or vision for your future and planning next steps. Counselling, on the other hand, is often more reflective and seeks to understand how past patterns of behaviour and thinking impact on your life right now so you can choose to use or lose them.
To say I love what I do is an understatement as there is no distinction between what I do and who I am.
I am a qualified professional coach and NLP Master Practitioner who has trained with Dr Richard Bandler, the founder of NLP; hypnotist Paul McKenna and Micheal Breen amongst others. I am also studying to be a clinical hypnotherapist with HypnoTC, one of the UK’s leading hypnotherapy training centres.
You may be in a situation where a fear or phobia is causing you unwanted distress or inconvenience. Perhaps you’d like to change your job or career and finding the decision difficult to make. You may even feel that you are in a rut, frustrated that you cannot get what you want out of life?
Whatever your situation, having a clear view of where you are now and a plan for the future will bring you close to finding the life you deserve. And maybe, now is a good time for your dream to become a reality. With me as your companion and guide, your journey will be swift and enjoyable. By recognising the obstacles ahead you can develop strategies to avoid or overcome them. You will be in control of your own destiny.
I have spent over 40 years working in IT within large and small corporations, and also understands the pressures that come with running your own business. As a result I have a great deal of experience of the kind of pressure many people endure in today’s fast moving world. I work with people to overcome their fears and phobias in a safe and effective way. Over the years I have come to realise that it isn’t the situation that causes the problems we face, rather it’s our reaction to it.
As Victor Frankl says “The ultimate, the final freedom we have, that can never be taken away from us, is the ability to choose our attitude in any given set of circumstances“.
wherever you are right now in life doesn't have to be where you stay
What would you like to change?
Where would you like to be?
How would you like to feel?
