Why choose The Goodness Guide
So why chose me to help and guide you on this journey??
Well, long story short I’ve been there. I’ve been where you are – lost, stuck, de-motivated. To be honest I’ve been at the bottom of a very deep hole and I have had to drag myself out of it!
My dream was always to work in mental health, and I completed my degree in Psychology in 2008. I then went on to complete my diploma to become a qualified & registered Therapeutic Counsellor. I worked on a voluntary basis for a few years to gain experience before setting up my private practice part time
After the loss of my partner in June 2018 – I was lost. I needed something to distract me from my grief, I needed something positive and exciting back in my life and that is how The Goodness Guide was born! I threw myself into creating course content, writing blogs and working everyday all day on my dream! And HERE IT IS!
The Goodness Guide is not just what anyone can read in a text book. This is real life, I HAVE LIVED IT! I continue to live it. I found a strength from somewhere to get out of my bed and pull myself out of the deepest and darkest of holes! I am not perfect, this is a work in progress and a journey which I share with my followers.
Many of the courses include things that I did/do myself to get to where I am today. I am a lot more positive, motivated and excited about being alive again!
Whatever you have experienced, whatever you think and feel about yourself YOU CAN CHANGE IT ALL AROUND – and I would love to help you figure out a way to do that!
Here at the goodness Guide, there is no judgement and there is no such thing as can’t! Just determination and RESULTS!!!!
Working with me you will gain the skills and confidence to find your answers, your motivation, and your direction to realising your dreams!
Coaching is action orientated focusing more on current life and what is going on right here right now. It can help you see yourself and your situation more clearly.
Coaching is great for helping you discover what it is you want and need out of yourself and life and helps you to find the right strategies and tools to you enable you achieve your goals.
The Goodness Guide is here to help you focus on creating and maintaining that motivation, work though any obstacles that you feel are in your way and create action plans for change. I can help you make the changes you need to make to ensure personal, professional and business development!
As with any therapeutic or counselling relationship – a coaching relationship comes with confidentiality and boundaries and focuses on you and your needs in the present and for the future. I provide coaching through online courses or face to face private sessions and in small groups.
Counselling is a ‘talking therapy’. It gives you the opportunity to discuss any issues, concerns and problems on a one to one basis. It is a chance to explore issues from your past & present, with the intention to overcome them and move forward.
Counselling is tailored to each individual, what their needs are and what they want from the sessions.
Counsellors do not have the answers and unfortunately I do not have a magic wand that can make all your problems disappear. What I can do is provide you with the time, patience and empathy to enable you to work through your problems and find your own answers, without the worry of being judged.
Talking to someone that is removed from your situation can provide a new and often different perspective and highlight things you may previously not have recognised, something that can be a really helpful and highly effective way to lessen the burden you carry around with you on a day to day basis.
