Time for You
Whether you are needing support to manage or overcome difficulty in your life or you are in a place where you are ready to take action towards realising a goal you may have, counselling and life coaching offer a safe space where you can think about yourself and take time to talk.
Counselling could give you the opportunity to talk with a trained professional who
will listen, in a non-judgemental way, to help you better understand and address those issues affecting your wellbeing.
Coaching offers an opportunity to engage in a focused approach with a qualified Life Coach who will commit to support you in moving forward to achieve your goals.
It could be that you are feeling low, anxious, or just not your usual self, without really understanding why.
Talking with a counsellor could help you better understand why you are feeling this way and give you the opportunity to make changes to improve things.
If you would like to find out more about counselling and/or to explore if it is the best support service for you, I would be happy to meet with you for an initial consultation session to discuss this.
Would it help to be supported as you work through difficult issues in your life?
Counselling could be the first positive step you take towards dealing with:
anger management, anxiety, bereavement & loss, depression, domestic abuse, family issues, financial difficulties, finding meaning in life, health-related issues, redundancy, relationships, self-esteem, self-harm, sexual orientation, stress, trauma, work-related issues.
My Counselling Service...
I was a Bereavement Support Volunteer with Cruse Bereavement Care from 2004 -2009 during which time I completed my counselling training at Queen's University Belfast. Since attaining my Advanced Diploma in Person-centred Counselling in 2007, I have provided counselling in post-primary schools, within the community in North and West Belfast as well as working in affiliation with a number of local and international Employee Assistant Programme (EAP) providers. I trained and worked in Dublin from 2014 - 2015 and I am now based in Belfast, where I offer counselling sessions to individual adults at venues in the south and east of the city.
Life Coaching offers you the opportunity to effect meaningful change in your life and to take positive action towards achieving the goals that you set for yourself.
Your life coaching sessions will provide a confidential and supportive space where you can explore how you can best fulfil your goals in a way that has value for you.
I will support you in exploring and defining what it is that you really want with a motivational approach to help inspire you to take action to make it happen!
Some areas that Life Coaching can help with:

Finding Meaning in Life
My Life Coaching Service...
As a professional Life Coach, I offer life coaching sessions to individuals who wish to be supported in taking action in respect of a goal that they may be finding difficult to begin working towards or to fully achieve.
I approach life coaching with a particular interest in how people can enhance meaningfulness and fulfilment in their lives .
The number of life coaching sessions required overall depends on the goal being brought, however, to provide you with the best life coaching support, a commitment to engage in a minimum of three sessions would be necessary.
