Areas of Specialism:
I have worked for 3 years as a NHS counsellor for The Awareness Centreand on a number of other counselling organizations. I am currently working, as a Drug & Alcohol therapist,
I have vast experience in working with addictive/compulsive behaviour, self-esteem, self perception, depression, anxiety, relationship issues,gender identity,traumatic events and minority groups(ethnic or sexual). I have practiced as a practitioner, a Senior Practitioner and a coordinator for some of the leading organisations that offer alcohol and drugs treatment for more than 15 years
My Life Couching is counselling and CBT informed, but it is a practical and solution focused professional relationship that will empower you to make fundamental changes in your self-perception and to meet your targets.
I will help you designing a fitness regime that match your time schedule and your general needs and to keep up an alimentation that takes into account your taste, cooking tradition but that it will be re-designed to avoid piling up the pounds . I want to pass on to you my true enjoyment i get out of a good training session so that you won't experience keeping fit as a punishment but as a pleasure . I can also help you with your closet; like most people it is easy to accumulate an enormous amount of clothes we will never wear of that we used to look good 20 years ago. We do not need to keep what we no longer wear and what was good on us 10 years ago may have a different effect now. There are very cheap ways to re-vamp your wardrobe. I can follow you in many areas of your life and focus on finding solutions. I can be as involved or as directive as you wish. It is a working alliance based on a relationship which will be lead by you. Money is not my principal motivation. I want to make my surrounding a better place and you are in my surrounding.
