Recovery Coaching


For those who are in recovery, life can seem like an endless slog of therapy and support.  If you are struggling with, or recovering from, an addiction, mental health problem, or eating disorder then life coaching may be able to help you see other life options that will support your recovery and help you move forward in a positive way.  Effective coaching may help you regain the confidence to work out what you want from life and how to get there. When we feel empowered, we focus on what we can do, rather than what we can’t. It is in [...]

Do Diets make you Fat


A study by Dr Sally Robinson from Christchurch University in Canterbury found that 22.9% of four to five year olds were overweight or obese, and in the report claims in the last 25 years alone the number of people shown to be overweight or obese has tripled. I have friends who have been horrified by schools wanting to weigh their children at school and label them as overweight (and believe me they don’t look it), who have felt patronised by the healthy eating guides they have been given. Don’t get me wrong – I watched Jamie Oliver’s battle to improve [...]

The Myths of Hypnotherapy


Will you make me cluck like a chicken? Am I out of control? Will I tell you my secrets? Can I get stuck in hypnosis? These are the types of questions I get asked by new clients and it is often the reason that prevents people from seeking help with a hypnotherapist. These myths (they are not true by the way :) ) are often the result of media sensationalism. To promote hypnosis in this way makes good tv watching, even childrens’ cartoons portray hypnosis as a way to control others in a ‘zombie’ type state (often with spinning eyes!).  [...]

The Humanistic Model of Therapy


As a supervisor to counsellors, hypnotherapists and other therapists I find it really useful to take a look at the different models of therapy. This can help me to  understand the model my supervisees are working from.  I am an Integrative therapist which means I have my model of therapy that integrates various models. As a client looking for a therapist you may be confused by all the different types of counsellors and therapists around, some may say they are humanistic, existential, person centred, client centred, psychodynamic, behavioural etc. Which do you choose? The humanistic model covers existential, person centered, [...]

So, How Does Coaching Work?


One of the most common questions I get is ‘how does coaching work’? Well, coaching is both a process and a relationship – between the client and the coach. Clients come to me because they feel stuck, confused or they are experiencing self doubt. My coaching programmes help them to get clarity, feel more confident and make positive changes to their life, business or career. The process involves me working with client to talk about what aspects of their life, work or business they want to change, why they feel stuck and what obstacles they see in their way. Then [...]
