Counselling and coaching sessions can be held face-to-face in my home office in Oliva or at your home, online (via video call or email) and by telephone.

 

COUNSELLING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY

People come to counselling, psychotherapy and coaching for a number of different reasons. My therapy background is in working with trauma, abuse, grief, depression, anxiety, relationship problems, work-related issues, as well as combating procrastination and feeling "stuck". Some issues may be temporary, others may have been building up in the background for some time and have only recently become problematical, while others still can stem from our childhood and upbringing. I can work with you on all of these.

The Covid-19 pandemic has been a very difficult time for all, and many people have been struggling with so many conflicting feelings of fear, the need to keep ourselves or our families safe, whilst wanting to help others. News reels fills resulted in sensations of uncertainty, isolation, loss and grief, because everyday life and survival had become uncertain for everyone. You may have particular worries or issues due to the pandemic, regarding your own health or that of a loved one, together with feelings of grief, anger, frustration, loss of freedom, loss of employment, etc. It is perfectly natural to experience any and all of these feelings - not just around the pandemic, but around any area of your life.

I also offer a supportive therapeutic environment for coming to terms with disability or illness, including being diagnosed with blood clots and clotting disorders, and surviving and living with the aftermath of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and/or Pulmonary Embolism (PE). I myself am a multiple bilateral PE survivor, and have written and published a book on coping with disability and illness at work.

Counselling / psychotherapy or coaching can help you to deal with your difficulties, by offering a safe, confidential and supportive space for you to talk, reflect and understand. Sharing your thoughts and fears with someone outside of your household can help you to find ways through the issue or to put things into a perspective which you can deal with more easily. Each person reacts to situations in different ways, and some clients may only need a few sessions of therapy whilst others may choose/need to work on their issues on a longer term basis. What's right for one client may not work for another. This is where my qualifications in Integrative Psychotherapy come in: I have studied several different approaches to working, which I can use at appropriate times with different clients for different issues.

Throughout our time together, your well-being and mental strength will be my priority. I can work with you through life’s challenges with the attention and care you deserve.

LANGUAGE, LIFE AND CAREER COACHING

In addition to counselling and psychotherapy, I can offer motivational coaching to help you identify and reach realistic goals for the future, whether this be in relation to your language skills, home life, your relationships, your career, retirement, moving home, etc.

 

For example, you might want some help to plan your move to a new career, to find a way to save money for house renovations or a holiday, to find a better work / life balance, to improve the ways in which you write and speak English, to establish a better working relationship with your boss or colleagues, to plan goals for the coming year or for your retirement.

 

I have coached dozens of people, helping them to identify a goal and then put together a realistic plan towards achieving it, whether it has been a personal or career goal, or overcoming a difficulty in either area. Whatever the issue, I can help you look at it from different angles and come up with approaches to resolve it.
