We can all experience situations and emotions that we just can't seem to make sense of. We end up feeling lost, anxious, stressed, angry or frustrated. At times like those, Counselling [LINK] or Life Coaching [LINK] can help you find your way.
Counselling gives you the chance to talk things through and explore the problems that are causing you distress or preventing positive change. I can help with a wide range of issues including relationship problems, bereavement, anxiety, stress, depression, abuse and addiction. Counselling provides a uniquely supportive, non-judgmental and confidential space.
Depending on where you are on the well-being spectrum, Life Coaching can be a more suitable starting point. If you’re unsure about your direction in life, want to move your career forward or need to get a fresh perspective, Life Coaching can help. I offer Life Coaching [https://exeterlifecoaching.co.uk/] as a Fusion® Certified Therapeutic Coach.
I have an MSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy and practice an integrative approach which draws on a range of healing traditions including CBT [LINK], mindfulness, Focusing [LINK] and ecotherapy.
Mindfulness is about paying careful attention to this moment. The potential benefits of mindfulness are myriad: While there is good evidence that mindfulness alleviates anxiety and makes chronic pain much more bearable, it has far wider applications.
After our initial meeting in my consulting room at The Gandy Centre, we might sometimes choose to work in the healing natural space of a local park. Counselling outdoors - sometimes called 'ecotherapy' or 'walk and talk therapy' - can be very effective.
