Feel Better Every Day on Sea – sessions now available in Frinton

Feel Better Every Day on Sea

My main client space remains Witham, with the Feel Better Every Day Consultancy on the high street but, in recent months, I’ve been offering a few sessions a week from Colchester (and am starting teaching a Sleep Yoga class there in January).

As of this week, am delighted to be offering a few sessions a week from Frinton on Sea on Essex’s Sunshine Coast. The Connaught Clinic is just a few moments from the seafront and a short walk from the station.

Resilience is something I’ve been working with for a long time and so I decided to create a separate page for it. You can click here to read more.

Integrative coach-therapy in Witham, Essex (and everywhere via telephone and Skype)


If you’re not sure whether you want coaching or counselling, you might be interested in finding out more about coach-therapy. This allows the focus to shift as you change and develop.

There’s an old coaching metaphor about someone being hit by a poison arrow and being asked loads of questions about where the arrow came from and so on (with the implication being that a coach would simply remove the arrow and sort the poison).

But that doesn’t give the whole story. Many of us have deeper issues. Coaching alone may not go deep enough meaning changes may be too much on the surface (less likely to last).

If we go back to that same spot and keep being hit by arrows, just dealing with the arrow might begin to seem futile. A counsellor would want to explore these unconscious motivations – what’s keeping you stuck in this old pattern?

Coach-therapy offers both approaches at different stages. While dealing with whatever you want to improve, if deeper issues surface, they can be addressed (if you want to), too, without your needing to be referred to a different therapist.

Click here to find out more and do get in touch if you’d like to chat about how integrative coach-therapy (or any of my Feel Better Every Day Consultancy services can help you get more out of life)

Personal Consultancy – the book launch


I had a lovely time at Debra and Nash‘s book launch last night.

Personal Consultancy is a model for integrating coaching and counselling/psychotherapy. And, of course, that can sound really jargony but, essentially, it’s about bringing ALL of who we are as coaches/therapists to best benefit our clients.

Even though I’ve been sober for a very long time (and it’s whisky I miss most), I loved Nash’s analogy of gin and tonic v tequila. In the first, the ingredients (gin, tonic and lime – coaching, therapy etc) are blended together and it’s hard to isolate each drop.

Tequila keeps things separate (licking the salt, downing the shot and sucking the lemon) but they still work together.


Through this book and by co-founding AICTP, Debra and Nash have created a forum for those of us with more diverse backgrounds to consider how best to work with clients. And their middle section takes into account many more ways of working by including chapters by contributors including Linda Aspey, Carolyn Mumby (pictured below) and Yannick Jacob.


If you’d like to buy the book, you can find out more here.

If you’re considering having some coaching and/or counselling/psychotherapy, you may find the book of interest (or simply ask your potential coach-therapist more about the way they work) but if you work in the field, I think you’ll find it very helpful.

You can also benefit from meeting other integrative therapists at BACP Coaching events as well as (I am a member of and love (so inspirational) both groups and recently became Chair* for the AICTP London group).

As the authors said last night, the world seems ready for an integrative approach. Support (or ‘consultancy’) that creates solid foundations as well as a beautiful building (their slides illustrated it well).

And if you’re in/near enough Witham, Essex (or happy to work via Skype and telephone everywhere), I’m very happy to talk to you about the way I work with these (and my other) services at Feel Better Every Day. (But wherever you’re based, do check out AICTP and BACP Coaching to find someone near you.)
