Supporting you to recover quickly from stressful setbacks
Stress is any experience, thought or situation that demands more from you than you are able to give. Anxiety is a feeling of worry or unease about something with an uncertain outcome. Most of us feel worried by some external stressor every single day – health issues, work pressures, relationship difficulties, or bereavement all test our resilience and our coping mechanisms. No one is immune to the odd hiccup, upset or more serious difficulty that affect your mind and emotional wellbeing. Having someone to talk to that can help you to understand, normalise and address these common human problems will show you that you are not alone and that you can be supported to recover quickly from stressful setbacks.
Using a short-term solution focused approach
Coach-therapy combines working on the presenting issue, being solution focused, proactive and motivational alongside exploring blocks and patterns that may hinder your progress. This combination will enable you to make lasting changes, develop new strategies and resilience to better manage your professional and personal life. It gives you the chance to change the thinking, behaviours, or emotions that created anxiety and the capacity to adapt and respond to pressures quickly and effectively.
Find solutions to problems, reduce stress and anxiety, strengthen relationships, improve confidence and self-esteem and take greater control of your life
When people come to see me it’s usually to find answers to, or relief from problems in their personal or professional life, lifestyle choices, or patterns of thoughts and behaviours of many kinds. These problems might be causing difficulty coping with everyday life and generating feelings of stress, anxiety or just general unhappiness.
Coach-therapy can help you to make positive changes by thinking or acting differently, strengthen your relationships, take greater control of your life and improve your confidence and self-esteem.
Together we will explore the presenting problems and other underlying issues that contribute to what’s going on right now. In order for this to happen, I offer time and space where you can talk about what’s really troubling you, where you are able to just say anything you want without feeling criticised or judged. I will help and support you to gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes, as well as identifying ways of finding your own solutions to problems in a perceptive and insightful way. This will help you to find your sense of self, to let go of old patterns of thinking and feeling and to cultivate awareness, understanding and acceptance in order to develop resilience and greater wellbeing.
I will support you with:
- practical and productive coping strategies
- skills that empower and harness your own internal resources
- fast and effective ways to change your anxious physiology
- gaining insight to new perspectives and problem solving
- techniques to develop resilience to stress and anxiety
- greater self-awareness, understanding, acceptance and self-compassion
- guidance for relaxation and practising mindfulness
1:1 Coach-Therapy Sessions
What is required of you?
As your coach-therapist all I require is commitment, a readiness to change and a willingness to challenge yourself to create new ways of thinking and being.
Contract and Fees
It is best to first speak by telephone to clarify specifically what your individual requirements are and to ensure that we are a good fit to work together.
This initial 15 minute call is free and you are under no obligation at all.
In supporting you to recover quickly from stressful setbacks, my approach is short-term solution focused therapy usually requiring 6, 12 or 18 sessions. We begin with an initial course of 6 sessions for £299 and depending on your individual needs and requirements, further sessions may be necessary which I will always discuss with you at your initial consultation.
Concessions subject to availability ~ I also maintain a limited number of reduced cost places, please ask about this if you are not able to afford the regular fee.
Once we have agreed to work together, I will ask you to sign a contract agreeing my fees and the terms under which I will coach you. I also ask you to complete a confidential questionnaire – this is a getting-to-know-you process. This process allows me to assess where you stand now and provides information about the best way to help you.
Face to face or Skype video worldwide
After this we speak at appointed times every week, that we agree in advance, for a 1 hour session. I offer face to face sessions in Ashford, Kent or worldwide 1:1 sessions via Skype video – whichever you prefer or you may choose a combination to suit you.
