Our Principles

  1. Professional

    Our coaches are professionally trained therapy practitioners by recognised programmes. They are required to be members of their respective governing bodies such as BPS, HCPC, BACP or BACAP. We ensure they are up to date with supervision and professional development, including necessary indemnity.

  2. Tailored

    We tailor our coaching to your specific needs and goals. We use a range of different psychological interventions including CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), psychodynamic and person-centred therapy as well as traditional forms of life coaching techniques.

  3. Non-Judgemental

    We offer a psychological space whereby you can talk freely about your experiences, worries or concerns without judgement. It is especially important to us that you feel safe to explore your inner world and have frank conversations without being shut down. We aim to have empowering conversations in order for you to move forward in a meaningful way.
