Welcome to The Counselling Coach!
As a counsellor living with chronic illness, I have a unique understanding of the difficulties caused by these conditions.
I specialise in working with those living with conditions such as ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia. My own personal experience of these helps me to really understand the daily struggles.
I am working online – either via zoom (video) or telephone. This is because I want counselling to be accessible for all. As things currently are with Covid-19, all face-to-face sessions will continue to take place online only. However, I do normally offer face-to-face sessions as well.
I also find that online work helps to fit with those who may need to rearrange sessions at late notice. Further flexibility is given for those living with chronic health issues. Because of the unpredictable nature of these conditions.
With coaching, I can support you to develop your own strategies and coping methods.
We work by setting goals together. These will vary depending on your personal needs and ability / level of condition.
Support is given to help you to adapt your life. Therefore, you’ll be able to experience some of what you feel you’ve been missing.
I’ll work with you to increase independence. And to set achievable goals – to get you where you would like to be.
**If you’re unsure whether you would like counselling or coaching, don’t worry, we are able to talk this through during the free initial consultation. You may wish to begin with counselling, to help you to understand and face the challenges. You can then choose to move over to coaching when the time is right for you!
For professionals who are looking for support on how to work with those with these conditions, The Counselling Coach can help! Here are some things that I ask counsellors who come to me for guidance:
- Do you know how to make your practice disability friendly?
- Are you aware of some of the invisible / hidden disabilities that people live with?
- Would you like to understand your clients more in order to improve the support that you can provide?
