I have worked with clients as a qualified coach for the last 5 years and as psychotherapeutic-counsellor for approximately 13/14 years.
However, for the next 12 months, I am taking a sabbatical - and, in accordance with my therapeutic governing body, I will not be working with any therapy or "well-being" coaching clients. I am, however, continuing as a business mentor (supported by my background in directorship, management, self-employed ventures and small start-ups).
If you are looking for a referral to a therapist (one that comes recommended) - in the next week or so, I will have a list of known (to me) and proven therapists, who have agreed to be contacted by you. Please bear with me, as this website goes through changes.
As therapists, we all have different styles, so if you do not find what you’re looking for, please look again at BACP Directory, The Counselling Directory or The Coaching Directory.
For some while, I have worked with individuals as a mentor. Mentoring is neither therapy, nor coaching – and is not a substitute for either. It is a different relationship (and totally different content), and my skill as a mentor draws on my background in management, marketing strategy and communications, start-up businesses and creating a self-employed ‘business’. Mentoring is a relationship that prospers over time, it is a guidance in strategy and an experienced and straightforward shoulder to lean on.
I only mentor a couple of people at any one time, as it involves me having to research and get up to speed with a client’s project/venture. I am happy to mentor in a corporate setting, but again, will only work with a small number of “mentees” at a time.
I do not mentor children or students (of any age) through school/university work or exams.
