About me and my therapy practice
Welcome to my profile page!
My name is Irène and I am a fully qualified and accredited counsellor (BA Hons) and nlp coach with over 18 years of experience helping people break through limiting thought patterns and behaviours that keep them dissatisfied with their lives.
Mental Health is one of the most important aspects of living a happy and successful life. And like physical health our mental health is often affected by what goes one in our lives. Anxiety, stress, depression or live events like divorce or loss can put a huge strain on our ability to look after ourselves and therefore makes it even harder to manage difficulties.
At Counselling for Change and Wellbeing I discuss your issue in dept to find the underlying issue and help you to gain a greater understanding of what might have caused the problem in the first place. This insight will help us to look for new ways of managing your issue in new and more up to date ways. We will work together at a pace that suits you to support an affirmative and effective process for positive change to be lasting.
Besides working in my private practice in Lightwater, I am also a counsellor and supervisor at the Brunel University London where I work with students and staff managing their mental health and wellbeing. I deliver several workshops to both, students and staff, focussing on stress and negative internal dialogue.
I would be very happy to start our work together with a free phone consultation where you can let me know your reasons for calling, your expectations of working with me and ask any questions you might have about how I work.
There is never a bad time to invest in ourselves for life changing returns.
(I hold a current and enhanced DBS check UK wide.)
My private practice in Lightwater offers the perfect space to start the process of change.
Sometimes we find ourselves in stressful situations, at work or at home, that feel too difficult to handle alone. I focus on increasing awareness and understanding of patterns that are keeping you feeling stuck and offer the opportunity to address these problems in a direct, effective, and supportive manner. The goal is to bring forth your best self in order to create a more genuine and passionate life.
My first session
Free 20min. phone consultation
The first thing I would recommend would be a brief phone conversation.
This will give you the opportunity to discuss your issue and ask me any questions you might have about counselling and how I work as a practitioner. To arrange this you can either contact me via phone 07714 096400 or send me an e-mail to email@example.com
Once we have agreed to meet either in my private practice or via remote access (phone or online) we can use this first session to discuss in more detail what brings you to counselling and what you would like to get out of our work together.
You are very welcome to ask me any questions you might and I will do my best to reply with openness and transparency.
It is important to feel comfortable and this first meeting can help you to ascertain whether working with me would be a positive step forward for you.
