Face to face or with Skype
If there is an aspect of your life with which you would like personal guidance and support we have a confidential one-to-one Coaching and Counselling service. This can be conducted in person (we are based in Brighton and Shoreham) or online via Skype, so it is available wherever you are in the world.
What to expect from a Personal Support session?
A Personal Support Session usually lasts for one hour. The facilitator acts like a mirror and by listening and reflecting back what they have heard helps you to unravel things and see from a clearer perspective. Having some sessions is a way of helping you move forward in your life, resolving some of the areas that may feel ‘stuck’ or holding you back from being happy. Essentially a Personal Support Session is a space of love in which the false layers of the self can naturally fall away and a deeper exploration and connection can take place. It is about learning to open up more fully to life and to your own unique expression of the gifts and qualities that you embody. Its purpose is to help you find your own answers to the challenges that you are facing.
Our style is pragmatic and integrative, drawing on various therapeutic processes depending on what is best suited to your needs. The sessions tend to unfold in a natural and organic way without the need for rigid structure, often in ways that are revealing and surprising. Sometimes this will involve us simply listening and encouraging you to go deeper, to bring more of yourself out. At other times we may offer feedback, insights or offer a practical way of exploring things further, often encouraging you to connect with your bodies awareness of the deeper feelings that may be there.
You may like to have a ‘one off’ session, a set series of sessions or it can be ongoing and open-ended, finishing when you feel complete with the process.
