Coaching focuses on professional and personal goals, performance and leadership, challenges and change to help you maximise your potential and achievement. It is a process determined by the requirements of the client and what they want to achieve now and in the future. Coaching is intended to be a creative and thought provoking process that enables clients to maximise their potential in several specific areas. It works best when used to help individuals work on specific professional development matters or to assist when taking on a particularly challenging work role.
Through coaching, we can help any organisation create innovative approaches to management thinking and fill its employees with optimism and self-belief so they can attain greater levels of performance. We facilitate new mindsets and behaviours at all levels of an organisation, fast-tracking group achievement by unlocking potential, through redesigning internal relationships and management styles.
Regardless of whether the coaching is to be paid by you or by your employer, please note that sessions are confidential and we do not provide feedback to your manager.
Counselling and Psychotherapy
Firstly, what is the difference. Counselling typically refers to a brief treatment that centres around behaviour patterns. Psychotherapy focuses on working with clients for a longer-term and draws from insight into emotional problems and difficulties.
Professional counselling is a safe and confidential partnership between qualified counsellors and clients to encourage mental health and well-being, enhance self-awareness, and resolve concerns. Clients are active participants in the counselling process at every phase.
Our aim is to be fully present with clients, using empathy and active listening to create constructive working relationships. Counselling is successful when clients feel safe, understood, respected, and accepted without judgement. Clients may explore facets of identity, spirituality, relationships with others, past experiences, parenting, grief and loss, trauma, domestic violence, child abuse, use of alcohol and other substances, depression, and anxiety.
The outcome can involve a change in perspective, new insight, new ways of thinking about circumstances, new awareness of emotions, greater ability to tolerate and regulate emotions, new behaviours, and new choices about life.
