Your Consultation With
As a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, Person-Centred Counsellor, and Life Coach – I use these tools to take a holistic view and customise the coaching to your requirements, partnering with individual needs; in a creative and thought provoking process that inspires you to maximise your professional and personal potential, by either focusing on aspects of your life or taking a holistic and eclectic approach that treats the whole person.
The first step to Coaching & Counselling is understanding where you are right now; so, no matter what your obstacles, I may be able to help once I gain a true understanding.
Together we will look at your preferences, needs, abilities, and individual strengths before coming up with a personalised set of realistic and practical goals and a plan to help you construct a satisfying, meaningful and full life, helping to empower you to achieve your highest goals.
Let’s see if we are the right fit, if it feels right that’s the beginning to the success you want.

To Initiate Change & Create Autonomy
What Led Me To Begin My Journey as a Counsellor & Life Coach
A little insight into my life
As a child I had very little psychological stability or feeling of being safe; partly due to being sent to stay in different places including foster care, as a result of this I went into survival mode. I tried to navigate through my traumatic childhood experiences which carried through into my early adult existence. Carrying around this trauma left me broken & unable to function comprehensibly as society would expect from me.
With the help of my daughter and a few sincere friends, my intuition (although I didn’t trust it at first) and Therapeutic counselling I was able to incorporate different modalities into my reality. Although an extremely difficult journey – learning to trust myself and others, building my self-worth and confidence, reprogramming and understanding ‘the world’ wasn’t my enemy (to name a few). I started to initiate the inner changes needed to create the autonomy necessary to pursue my studies into Therapy and Counselling, this was from a hospital bed encouraged by my daughter and two friends, shaping a career as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist & Life Coach; assisting others to Vanquish their challenging obstacles.
My goal is to continue doing ‘my part’ in the world, having come through my own trauma with a better understanding of the effect it had on my thinking, I now thankfully navigate life from a different place. I will assist you to find and preserve your own equilibrium, we are as you know unable to control external life changing factors although with a different mindset, we can improve how we respond to them.
Your consultation will take place on Zoom from anywhere between 20 minutes – 40 minutes.
In some cases we’re able to do the consultation over the phone.
We can discuss the obstacles you are facing (there is no pressure to share anything you’re uncomfortable with).
We’ll look at potential ways forward, assist you in understanding how Vanquish Therapies works and answer any questions you may have.
