Coach

Creativity & Leadership Coaching

Successfully dealing with my challenges with the aid of 'exceptional' helpers has inspired my clients with the confidence & courage to do the same. Through genuineness, empathy & acceptance, I try to provide brief, effective, and practical help in a caring but challenging & supportive environment. I support people in helping themselves. Using an ACT coaching approach, I teach powerful and effective self-help techniques for dealing with relationship, personal and business challenges.

    Quality Provision

    I have retired from the role of mental health professional & registered psychologist to focus on coaching for creativity, leadership, relationships and optimal functioning and wellbeing. I will always engage in personal/prof development as my Ph.D. on the psychology of helping indicated it was crucial for effective helping. Similarly, self-care is a priority so that I can really be there for clients.

My training and experience includes: counselling, ACT coaching, marriage and relationship counselling, CBT, person-centred counselling, Gestalt therapy, hypnotherapy, psychodrama, group leadership, Holotropic breath/bodywork, transpersonal coaching, mentoring and lecturing and psychology research.
