Qualifications and training
Here's the important bit. I am an experienced and qualified life coach and master practitioner of NLP, (Neuro-Linguistic Programming,) time line therapy and hypnosis, with qualifications in CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) as well.
I have worked extensively with young people and adults. As well as working privately, I work part time for a small Hove based charity providing support to disabled young people.
I am experienced at dealing with issues such as stress and anxiety, confidence, self-esteem, depression, relationships, addictions, phobias, career changes or general work related issues etc. For more information about the specific issues I am trained to work with please visit the pages in the menu above.
More About Me
And now for a bit of background;
Born in Kent and now based in Brighton and Hove, I have had to overcome many personal challenges to get to where I am now. I have studied everything from music to ICT and my latest challenge is to attempt to learn Spanish to add to my skills and to one day be able to offer coaching in a second language. Growing up with a vision impairment has helped me to see that this, or any other disability or inconvenience as I prefer to think of it should not stop anyone doing anything they want to do, accept perhaps driving in my case.
As well as my work in coaching, my other passion is music, as you will see by the many instruments on the walls when you visit my home in Brighton for face to face coaching.
I am also a loving dog owner. Please note, if you have a severe allergy to dog hair, while there will be no dogs in the room during sessions, unfortunately I cannot guarantee that you will never come into contact with any dog hairs. If this is a concern for you, I do offer coaching via Skype, FaceTime or phone as well as face to face. Just call me for a chat and we can work out the best solution for you.
About coaching and therapy sessions
Sessions can be held face to face in my comfortable home in Hove, East Sussex, very close to numbers 1 6 and 700 bus routes. Sessions will be held in my relaxing lounge / therapy room, where I hope you will feel relaxed and comfortable. The street is a quiet residential street with free parking during most hours and very little external noise to distract you from your thoughts. If you're not local, or cannot get to my home, Please get in touch to discuss phone, Skype or FaceTime coaching. This can be just as effective as face to face, so don't let geography stop you getting the help you need.
As I am trained in a range of different types of therapies, sessions could take directions which neither of us expected, you may come to me expecting some coaching, but we may realise there is a specific NLP intervention which would work perfectly for a particular challenge you are facing, and this is absolutely fine. I will always tell you which route I think will work best for you, but ultimately you have the control and you make the decisions. Sessions can become whatever you need them to become, and if you feel one method isn't working for you, there will always be other options we can take. Your session is yours. It will be unique to you and my ultimate goal is just to help you achieve whatever it is you have come to me to achieve.
When you're ready to take that first step, Just use the contact form on the home page, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call on +447825129637 to discuss what you need. I will always do my best to answer your call, but do remember I can't answer while I'm with a client, so do leave me a message or drop me a text with your details and I will call you back as soon as I'm available.
