Counselling services

Sometimes it helps to talk to someone who is objective, non-judgemental and empathetic to your situation. A trained counsellor works alongside you to help you make the desired changes in your life. Gain clarity and perspective on problems that may seem overwhelming. Process issues that are troubling you so that you are free to move on. Find new ways of dealing with recurring patterns of behaviour. Learn new techniques for dealing with depression and anxiety. Build your self esteem and self confidence. A counsellor can help you to find your own solutions, without giving a second-hand opinion.

Couples counselling services

I specialise in relationship or marriage counselling and same-sex couples counselling. Counselling can help you work through relationship issues and communication breakdowns. Working with a trained counsellor can help you to better understand typical relationship dynamics and map out the patterns that occur in your relationship. You will develop your skills to change some aspects of your style of communication and become a more effective and loving partner. Build more harmony and happiness in your relationship.

Life coaching services

Life coaching can help you achieve particular work or life goals and improve the quality of your life. The process focuses on your values and vision for where and how you want to be. This becomes more concrete through working with your ambivalence and strengthening your motivation. Tasks and targets will be negotiated between sessions and email support provided. Life coaching can make a vast difference between just getting by and getting to where you want to be. Live the life you want.

Clinical supervision services

Clinical supervision is a vital part of your development as a counsellor at whatever stage of the journey you might be on. A certain number of regular, ongoing supervision sessions are a requirement for registration with your professional association, as well as annual professional development and a certain number of client hours. It is important to maintain professional standards and to ensure that clients achieve the best outcomes. Through a clear process of forming a contractual arrangement about how, when and where you want to work together with your supervisor, we will come up with particular learning goals and you will plan the agenda for your sessions.

Contact Linda to discuss your needs for Clinical supervision.

Consulting

Consulting can take the form of running courses for organisations or the education sector or working with an organisation’s personnel to design custom made courses. Specialties include effective communications skills, team building, and managing anxiety and stress.
