I work using Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) - with a light, fun and imaginative approach. The coaching I do is solution focused, empowering the client to work out how they'd like to change, manage and make things better for themselves. All working towards a HappyKindCalm way of living day to day.
With children, I teach them how all feelings are fine to have, and they're parts of us. However, sometimes we don't want certain feelings to be so strong. So there are lots of ways for us to understand and cope with feelings, using a creative, magic bag of things like drawing, stories, jigsaws and imagination that mainly comes from the child. We learn to use our feelings or "superpowers" such as brave, confident, happy, calm, self-worth etc to help us. One of the main points is that no child is bad, and no feeling is bad.
Teenagers and Adults:
With teenagers and adults, I use techniques that help us understand and recover from unwanted feelings, as well as looking positively towards wanted feelings and how to reach them in everyday life. The sessions totally depend on the client, and the techniques are tailored to you. There are techniques for anxiety, fears, anger, loneliness, self-esteem, confidence, motivation and more.
Sessions and Prices:
Sessions are up to 50 minutes and are £40 per session. This kind of therapy is solution focused, so usually people have between 3 and 10 sessions in total, but it totally depends on the person and the issues, as all are unique. Sessions can be done in person or via video call, whichever you find more comfortable. I cover areas in and around Newbury, so West Berkshire and North Hampshire.
Client Testimonial from a mum and teenage daughter:
"We really can’t thank you enough for your wonderful support over the last six months. From the moment we realised that Lucy was struggling, I felt totally lost and didn’t know where to turn.
Lucy and I were both quite nervous about meeting you but the moment we did, we were so comfortable with your kind and caring manner.
The work you did with Lucy gave her the chance to see things in a different way and really taught her how to be strong and proud of the person she is. The techniques you showed her have enabled her to manage her anxiety’s giving her skills she can work with moving forward.
The difficult part for us will be to say goodbye to you, somebody that has made such a positive difference to our families life as such a tricky time for us.
Thank you so much, you have been amazing!!"
I've had pangs of anxiety for a few seconds this week but I've been doing your visualization and the anchor and managing to the get the feeling away very quickly!
We can't thank you enough for all the amazing support you've given us over the past few months.
My son really benefited from seeing Caz. She is so warm and understanding, explaining emotions on his level. He loved his sessions and is a different child now.
