Counselling and Coaching with Pam Winter
Counselling and coaching could both be described as 'enabling' relationships. However there are some differences of focus and method. Sessions are usually face to face however I also offer online and telephone sessions (more commonly used in coaching) but only if appropriate for a client's needs.
The current Corona Virus health crisis means I am planning to offer face to face sessions again in September 2020 and also currently offering online or telephone counselling or coaching. The extremely challenging issues being raised by this crisis means many people are suffering from the psychological impact of social isolation, anxiety and loss. If you need help and support regarding these or any related issues please do get in touch.
Counselling can help if you are experiencing difficulties functioning in your present life and want to explore and understand your past and present self.
For example,you might be struggling with depression, anxiety, or a mixture of both, with symptoms such as continuously worrying, feeling negative about yourself, not being able to sleep,or switch off.
You might have ongoing low self esteem or be struggling with a loss or having to make a difficult decision or change in your life.
You might be feeling that your personal relationship or work is getting on top of you.
If so then you could benefit from counselling and a supportive, professional relationship to enable you to:
Explore your thoughts and feelings,understand and accept your personality
Find new ways to resource and help yourself to make the changes you want to make
Get back a sense of enjoyment, purpose,and meaning in your life
