Integrative Behavioural coaching targets procrastination or difficulties in maintaining the type of psychologically healthy outlook which promotes sustainable change.
Changing thinking and behavioural habits of a life time can be difficult and frustrating. We are often inhibited by self-defeating thoughts. This may present itself as negative “I can’t” internal dialogue. Cognitive behavioural coaching is a collaborative approach which rationally explores entrenched performance inhibiting thoughts and experiments with alternative ways to view particular situations or relationships. My role as an empathic, ethical integrative CBC coach helps my clients to:
Problem solving and solution focused coaching for emotional disturbances such as, worry, stress, anxiety, low-mood, depression, guilt, shame, hurt, unhealthy anger, jealousy and envy.

My responsibility is to take care to discuss whether coaching or psychotherapy offers a more suitable route to wellbeing. Where we agree therapy is more appropriate, I can support my clients in locating a practitioner. I can, if useful, and with the therapist’s full agreement, provide practical coaching to support healthy routines while deep psychological issues are managed through professional therapy.
Where we agree that coaching is a viable approach to managing emotional disturbances, my role is to provide a person-centred, empathetic approach which:
Coach/Mentor Support: for a specific challenge such as preparing or practising for new challenges, meetings, interviews and presentations. I bring a range of coaching tools and techniques which supports a practical 'cut to the chase' process.
This approach is designed to promote self-coaching as a practical resource.
