DID YOU KNOW... AND FAQ'S
WHO IS COACHING FOR?
My coaching is for anyone and everyone, aged 12 and above. If you feel that there is something you would like to change or improve in your life, then coaching can help you. If you feel a bit down or lonely then coaching can help you too. If you want to talk to someone confidentially who is non-judgemental and empathetic, then I am here for you.
I am ethically bound to treat all of your details and what you share with me, confidentially. This means that your name, age, email address, EVERYTHING known to me about you, is never spoken to anyone else. It is my ethical duty to follow this code of conduct and abide to it. However, if I feel that you are an immediate danger to yourself or others, it is my professional duty to alert the emergency services.
If you are still not comfortable using your real name then you can use a fake one.
DO I REALLY NEED TO SPEAK TO SOMEONE?
Would you be asking yourself this question if your life was perfect? No, probably not. But nobody's life is perfect. You don't have to be feeling a certain way to engage in a coaching session, there is no right or wrong way for you to be feeling to have a coaching session. Anybody can decide to undergo a coaching session. If you're thinking of a coaching session then the chances are that there is something that can be improved or helped, no matter how small you may think it is.
WHAT IS ANXIETY ANYWAY? I THOUGHT EVERYONE GETS ANXIOUS.
Every one of us will get anxious at some point in our lives but if you are constantly worrying, overthinking and needing assurance, this is possibly a level of anxiety opposed to just feeling anxious. Coaching can help with anxiety and anxious thoughts by aiming to work with your negative thought processes. Many people battle with anxiety without having it diagnosed because they believe what they are feeling is 'normal'. It's not, and it can be incredibly difficult for people to live with. Have a look at the NHS website for more information on anxiety and other mental health problems. https://www.nhs.uk/common-health-questions/lifestyle/do-i-have-an-anxiety-disorder/
I'M NOT DEPRESSED, I'M JUST SAD. CAN I STILL GET HELP?
Absolutely. Although, depression, like anxiety, is something that many people struggle with, without knowing it. Depression is believed to be the second leading cause of disability worldwide and can easily go undetected for a long period of time because people believe it is not as severe as it actually is. So if you're feeling low or having more sad days than you'd like, then think about coaching to improve your mental well-being.
