Therapy or Coaching - Which is Right For You?

Counselling & Psychotherapy

Counselling & psychotherapy is a process where individuals, couples, families or groups can meet with a trained professional to talk about any issues and problems they might be experiencing in their lives. Counsellors & psychotherapists work to a professional standard, which emphasises the ethical significance of enabling clients to increase their capacity to act for themselves and to gain an improved sense of personal well-being.

Personal & Career Coaching

Coaching is a time-limited process that supports a person, team or group in acting purposefully and appropriately in the context they find themselves in. Coaching can unlock your potential to maximise your own performance by helping you to learn, rather than your coach teaching you.

Good coaches work professionally, ethically and recognise eight commonly agreed fundamental principles: self-responsibility, respect, acceptance, confidentiality, integrity, transparency, flexibility and neutrality. My approach to coaching is collaborative and seeks to cultivate a solution-focused, results-oriented and systematic process, in order to facilitate the enhancement of your work performance, life experience, self-directed learning and personal growth.

I offer a free of charge 40 minute 'coaching-chemistry' session via Zoom, giving us the opportunity to discuss your reasons for choosing coaching, your goals and expectations. It also gives us a chance to decide if we would like to work together. You are under no obligation to return after our chemistry call.

Counselling for fertility issues

“Infertility is known to be one of the most distressing experiences for anyone who expected to plan a family. It is often a shock, threatening hopes and dreams of how they imagined a future”
(BICA 2018)

Fertility counselling provides a space where you can talk openly and without judgement about your thoughts, feelings and concerns. Counselling can also help you to explore your options and consider any implications for the future.

Clinical supervision

I am a trained supervisor and offer clinical supervision to psychodynamic therapists and trainees.
