Therapy, Counselling & Coaching

Counselling & Therapy
The purpose of counselling & psychotherapy is to provide an opportunity for individuals to benefit from speaking with a person specifically trained to deal with emotional or behavioural issues whether at work or in the home.

Many individuals take advantage of counselling & psychotherapy as a way to address areas of their life or issues specifically affected by large scale changes such as redundancy or bereavement. Counselling & psychotherapy allows the individual to reflect on their own personal circumstances, to understand the effect of the change and to start to move on in their lives.

Counselling & psychotherapy are different from coaching in that the individual is encouraged to reflect upon their own particular circumstance to understand why it is they have been affected in that way. It also encourages individuals to work through emotional states so that they can emerge in a better place than where they started.

This is provided in a confidential and secure environment where the person receives individual attention to facilitate him or her through any negative states, addressing any potential blocks that may arise along the way.

Areas that may be addressed include:

Redundancy & redeployment
Bereavement
Family issues & illness
Work related stress
Divorce & separation
Health related issues

Executive & Career Coaching

The purpose of executive and career coaching is to provide an opportunity for individuals to benefit from coaching outside of the normal work context.  Many individuals take advantage of a coaching opportunity as a way to address areas of their life that they would not normally take the time to consider within a busy career and home life. Coaching enables the individual to reflect on their own personal effectiveness and how to improve this to enable sustained success in the workplace.

Coaching is different from counselling, in that the individual is encouraged to work towards goals and takes responsibility for the coaching relationship and outcomes that are agreed.  The coaching is provided in a confidential and secure environment off site, where the employee receives individual attention to facilitate him or her towards goals and aspirations in their life, addressing any potential blocks that may arise along the way.

Areas that may be addressed include:

Career development
Interpersonal Skills
Enhanced Communication skills
Presentation skills
Interpersonal conflict
Health related issues
Performance issues
Redundancy and redeployment
Return to work after illness
