Some of the most common challenges that I work with are loss, change, unhelpful patterns of thinking, stress and anxiety. More of my thinking on these can be found in my blog which you can access below.
In the blogs, I like to share a bit of what I find both fascinating and frustrating about the human mind.
The sociological, biological, psychological, historical and neurological reasons behind why, as humans, we often do what we do: usually to survive.
Please note, there is so much scientific and academic evidence available in these areas. I am not claiming these thoughts to be totally complete in their science, but they may help as shortcuts to some of the psychological patterns we create as humans.
If none of these relate to your current needs but you like the sound of the way I work, please take advantage of the free 30 minute consultation session and we can establish if we think that this is something I can help you with or whether I can assist you to find a suitable specialist for your needs.
Our brains have developed over many years to keep us safe and keep us alive. However, sometimes the programming needs an update, as things which we started to do and once worked, are now behaviours and patterns which are not helpful. By tapping into our creativity (in right hand brain) we can pause the left hand 'thinking' brain who always knows best and often acts first. In giving space to our creative brain, we can explore different ways of doing things and understand ourselves and our motives with a new perspective.
And by the way - we all have a right hand brain and there are many ways to access it, so using creativity is not just about being good at drawing!
During Covid, I made the switch to working online and have always used telephone for those who prefer it. I am happy to discuss any or all of these and am also happy to work with clients who would prefer to blend these methods (maybe for practical reasons).
In a purpose built room in Kings Worthy, Winchester.
It is ground floor but has no disabled access. We could discuss the possibility of working online.
A great way to unlock the right hand side of your brain is through creativity.
This is optional and there are lots of different ways to access your creative side.
We can all be creative in some form.
I often use the image of starting counselling as a messy wardrobe; the best way to start is often to pull everything out before putting it back ... although this can feel overwhelming.
We'll go at your pace.
And if you'd like even more of a flavour of me, here I am, in 15 seconds, explaining why the initial conversation is so important before we agree to work together.
If you feel that this might be for you, please contact me and we can arrange a no obligation, free of charge (30mins) session over the phone to see if we can work together, what your needs are and whether taking the next step would be helpful.
