I am currently taking a break from private coaching and counselling due to other career commitments. If you are interested in having me take a workshop for your workplace please email me to discuss.

Phobias Show

Your unconscious mind is trying to do you a favour and protect you. It has linked a trigger with a 'fight or flight' response. With special techniques which don't involve stressful exposure to the phobic trigger, this link is switched to a more helpful response. The process is chatty, relaxing and easy-going, just the sort of response you'd like to have. By removing the anxiety from the original trigger, working your own magic on the scenarios which have been a problem and giving you strategies for future smooth sailing you will find a new confidence to approach the world and will no longer have to avoid the issue.

Trauma Show

If past events are still causing anguish in your present, we can work on changing how you think of thrm which allows you to remember, without the churning of emotions which often goes with that. Reliving the memories often means you relive the emotions. I can teach you how to remove those negative feelings which are having an impact on the way you are currently living and planning for the future.

Stress/Anxiety Show

Do you worry unnecessarily or not cope with stress? Does your anxiousness about safety, or concern for others or yourself, stop you living the way you would like to? You have been good at putting strategies in place to keep you safe however this can itself create and maintain that anxiety. Let's use those skills to put strategies in place which will do more than just allow you to function, but will help you to quiet the parts of the brain which are dominating your responses, and activate the gear shift which will allow you to keep things in perspective and live an enjoyable life. Even if you are taking medication it is helpful to combine that with practising a new way of thinking so that your long term benefits are maximised. Your brain is plastic and can grow new pathways to allow you to enjoy a better life. Take that opportunity now.

Depression Show

That chemical change in you body is created by your body. Your mind and body are one system. We can teach your mind to creating a more positive and happier state. Often it seems impossible to move away from the thoughts that are stuck in your brain. With new strategies and techniques to shift gear, shift focus and come out from under the heavy blanket of depression I can show you ways to enjoy life again. It may mean complementing any medication you may be taking, with a new way of thinking, talking and being, and a long term goal to coping in ways which give you back the enjoyment and wonder of life.

Motivation Show

Create the drive within yourself to do those things you've been wanting and wishing for. Banish procrastination, create opportunities for yourself and realise your potential and personal excellence. Do you admire those people who just seem to get things done, achieve results and live a full and bountiful life? It doesn't happen by luck or because they read a book about wishing things to happen. They think about things in a way which means that they act. They set themselves up to succeed. The best part is that it's possible for you to do that too. I can help you find the triggers which will cause you to fire in a way that will give you drive and direction. If you want a different outcome you have to do things in a different way.

Weight Management Show

Struggling with yourself to gain control of your eating and exercise choices? I know a great process that will help you resolve that conflict and achieve your goals. Do you know what your downfalls are but do them anyway? Do you substitute food for comfort, or eat out of boredom or habit? Lets align your goals to be healthy and happy with the choices you make. Stop letting food dominate your thoughts and stop beating yourself up about your lack of success. We can change your focus to what works, what feels good, and what makes a difference.
