I’m a chartered counselling psychologist who is passionate about enabling growth and transformation within individuals, groups and organisations.
Here you’ll find information about the services I offer and you can read my blog, The Differentiated Life.
Therapy: Dive into the Deep
You may be looking to find a way through a challenging period in your life, struggling to cope with a mental health difficulty or feeling stuck in unsatisfactory relationships.
Therapy offers an invitation to dive into the deep. Together with a skilled therapist you have the opportunity to explore below the surface of everyday living. In a confidential space I will support you to share, explore, understand and bring about change.
Coaching: Take the Next Step
Are you are working in a challenging context and wish to enhance your resilience? Required to lead organisational change but needing to address resistance? Or seeking support to develop your management and/or leadership skills?
Coaching empowers you to take the next step. I will help you raise your awareness, support you to make positive changes and provide you with techniques and strategies to achieve your specific goals. My distinctive approach offers significant insights into the often unacknowledged under-the-surface emotional and relational dimensions that powerfully influence your leadership style and the functioning of your organisation.
Coaching Groups: Get Beneath the Surface
Are you in church leadership and feel like you’re burning out? No longer flourishing in ministry but weary and just getting through day to day?
This coaching group programme offers ministers the opportunity to get below the surface of the usual recommendations around self-care and well-being to unpack the deeper relational and psychological dynamics that often frustrate ministers’ best efforts to thrive.
The groups unpack and explore 6 themes foundational for well-being and empower participants to apply those insights within their personal life and church context. This investment will not only improve participants’ own well-being but also support the flourishing of their church communities.
These 6 session coaching groups are based on the insights unpacked in my most recent book: Flourishing Ministers: Flourishing Communities. Now available as an ebook or in hard copy.
Blog: The Differentiated Life
The Differentiated Life refers to the psychological concept of differentiation. Differentiation encapsulates the patterns of personal functioning and relational behaviour we display when placed under pressure. It is a foundational element of the self-in-system approach that underlies my clinical work, coaching sessions and workshops.
My blog offers bite-sized nuggets of differentiation-based insight that you can apply to your life and work. It includes thoughts to prompt self-reflection, updates on relevant research and resources to develop personal skills.
During a final therapy session with a client we were reflecting over the work we had done together. He told me that he had either thought the sessions would be a total waste of time, or that I’d “fix” him completely. “Now,” he mused, “I realise that it was never going to be either. It’s been about embarking on a journey from which I’ll never be the same again.”
I look forward to joining with you on your journey of growth and transformation.
