About me and my therapy practice

I  specialise in supporting people who are going through really tough times at work. I can help you to find a route through the chaos and find your smile again. 

You may be feeling exhausted, anxious, finding it difficult to sleep, dreading going into work or currently signed off sick. It probably feels the harder you try to fix things the more everything feels out of control. You may find colleagues, friends and family don't understand, which is making you feel even more alone. 

Please get in touch as I have helped hundreds of people in your situation. I work in a kind, calm, positive way to help you build your resilience and find the answers you need to get back on track. 

For those who feel that they need a bit of support, but are a little hesitant about counselling, then maybe my THERAPUTIC COACHING service is for you.   

Both my Counselling and Therapeutic Coaching services are ideal for anyone who is:-

  • Feeling overwhelmed, burnt out, anxious or stressed at work
  • Currently signed off sick from work and wants to work through the situation to find a solution
  • Experiencing conflict with a colleague 
  • Have been/or are going through a difficult investigation, performance, mediation or grievance process
  • Feeling bruised of confused by recent changes at work
  • Suffered a bereavement of a colleague
  • Going through a company restructure or facing redundancy
  • Experiencing issues with their boss or team members
I have over 25 years experience of supporting people through the most stressful times at work. Not only am I a Counsellor and Coach but am a Mediator, Organisational and leadership development specialist and have held many senior roles in the corporate, NHS and charity sectors, so have a wealth of experience to support the most difficult complex work situation. 

Wright Insight Ltd - Calm Minds Work

Practice description

I offer one off single sessions or you can purchase sessions in blocks of 5. Basically, as few or as many as you feel you need. 

I appreciate that life is busy and everyone is different, so I will work with you to best suit your needs. You can attend sessions, weekly, fortnightly, monthly or on an adhoc basis depending on your budget and reasons for seeking support. 

My face to face clients have the benefit of visiting my unique office space which is set in a tranquil, countryside, luxury location with beautiful views. This calm restorative environment is a great place to reflect and escape. There is plenty of parking, air conditioning and a great coffee machine. 

I am a member of 3 professional bodies, so hold the relevant qualifications to support you:-

MBACP - registered member of the BACP

EMCC - Senior accredited practitioner of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council

FLPI - Fellow member of the Learning and Performance Institute.

Please check out my website for some testimonials, or get in contact for more information. 

My first session

Please contact me for a FREE 15 minute online consultation to discuss how I may be able to support you. 

Once you have submitted your request via the BACP I will email you a link to my booking page and you will be able to select a time and day that suits you. You will then be sent a TEAMs link for the online meeting. 

During our initial 15 minute consultation we can discuss your individual needs, I can explain how I work, then you can decide if you want to work with me. There is no pressure to proceed if you don't feel its right for you. However, if you do then want to work with me we can arrange your first session and I can send you any relevant paperwork to read through. 

I look forward to working with you soon.

I have 25 years experience of working with organisations, leaders and HR depts to support staff to find solutions to stress or conflict situations.
