As a Coaching Psychologist I can offer a brief, targeted intervention that is a collaboration between me and you aimed at ‘moving on’ in your life – either towards a specific goal, or more broadly focussed to optimise ongoing personal development. Based on trust and mutual respect, coaching – compared to psychotherapy – is less concerned with seeking understanding from the past. It’s more about bringing an intended future into being by taking values-oriented actions NOW.
Working as a MENTOR, I am specifically interested in collaborating with people who are keen to cultivate a more mindful way of being in the world.
My understanding, training and experience with both Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, ACT and the Integral Model ensure that the work is in accord with the coachees values and that personal development is considered ‘across the board’
Typically, as well as face to face, coaching consultations can take place over the telephone (or Skype).
I am a founding member of the British Psychological Society’s Special Interest Group in Coaching Psychology, and a member of two professional development coaching networks.
