Handle emotional and mentally challenging times
Mental and Emotional Wellbeing
Coaching is a powerful way for you to develop your mental and emotional wellbeing. Whether you feel that you are in crisis, or simply not as happy as you want to be, I will help you to feel safe. I bring a balance of listening, support and practical help. I have been trained in trauma awareness and working with mental health. My approach draws on a wide range of methods, approaches and tools to help you find your balance and positive outlook again in life.
Emotional Freedom (EFT) and Dynamic Experience (AEDP)
EFT (also known as tapping) and AEDP are highly experiential and practical methods that are very effective if you are struggling with life in one way or another. The therapeutic effects of this technique are recognised around the world and both continue to be actively developed through robust studies.
Both approaches allow you to develop your own capacity quickly, and give you methods to take away and use in your own time.You will learn how to notice and shift the negative patterns that form around uncomfortable thoughts, feelings, events or troubling memories.
Mindfulness - Acceptance and awareness
Another important principle that I work by is that self-awareness and the ability to accept whatever we are going through are key skills to develop. Acceptance does not mean resignation, there is a very important distinction between the two. Acceptance is about allowing what is going on to be true. Once we are able to do that, and stop simply wishing it were different, we can take steps to make change. If we stay in resistance and denial, then we are not able to fully see what we need to do next.
I have been trained in Mindfulness for Life and also in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. This allows me to help my clients build formal and informal mindfulness practices into their daily lives and to make a positive difference to their mental and emotional wellbeing.
