University / College Transition
The transition to college or university is a highly stressful time. Many teenagers drop out within the first term or after the first year. Although exciting it brings a whole host of difficulties (finance, fitting in, balancing study & leisure, organisation and time management skills).
From difficulties in meeting someone and establishing a relationship, to decisions about a relationship, repairing and strengthening an existing relationship or recovering from a difficult split.
Weight loss coaching involves exploring and overcoming issues such as emotional eating, self sabotage, body confidence, self criticism and so on. I also work with people having gastric bypass surgery who require Psychological assessment and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) / treatment sessions prior to and following their surgery.
Because Overeating is often driven by our emotions, impulses & habits approaching weight loss from a psychological perspective can be effective.
Self confidence and self esteem
Having low self confidence and esteem can impact quality of life. Exploring negative beliefs and patterns as well as learning to be heard and handle others can be a valuable part of a personal development plan.
It can be difficult to deal with conflicts and negotiate difficult situations. Anger management explores the reasons behind angry outbursts and enables better personal control in trigger situations.
It is often helpful to speak to someone to explore how to deal with difficult work colleagues, and situations and adjusting to promotion or a new / changed job role. Private help is available for those wishing to shine at interviews, decrease interview nerves, and increase confidence in and out of the workplace.
