After more than 20 years, working successfully in leadership roles in an agency setting, I experienced my own professional crisis and with the help of both therapy and coaching, was able to work through this. One of the outcomes of this life chapter was a determination to give back and help others, which resulted in my decision to train as an integrated coach-therapist.
I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Integrated Coaching and Counselling and have trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches. This allows me to bring what I believe will be the most appropriate techniques and strategies, depending on our work together. In addition to coaching, these include; Compassion Focussed Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Solution Focussed Therapy, Gestalt, Person-centred and Existential therapies.
However, as a client you don’t need to worry about the theory. Leave that to me. Our main priority together is establishing a genuine and authentic connection, which leads to a strong working relationship – providing a safe space to explore, resolve and accept.
