Are you spinning lots of plates?

Are you struggling, stressed, anxious or even depressed?

Are you feeling ineffective?

Work issues can ‘leak’ into home life and vice versa and sabotage our enjoyment to relax with others or enjoy our interests & hobbies.

✳︎Do you feel stressed, anxious or depressed?

✳︎Are you struggling with work/life balance?

✳︎Do you dread going into work?

✳︎Are relationships at work or home proving challenging?

✳︎Do you procrastinate or avoid situations?

✳︎Do you feel undervalued?

✳︎Are you struggling with confidence and self esteem

Are you feeling alone with your worries and unsure which way to turn?

If you are experiencing any difficulties with any of the above I can help. I know personally how difficult it can be .I spent nearly 20 years working in the Corporate Industry working my way to a highly responsible Senior Management role managing 2 large teams of people and a significant multi million pound marketing budget.

Do you feel you’re not coping at work or home?

People frequently tell me that they cannot express their difficulties or ‘let their guard down’ for fear of being perceived as incapable or not coping at work. Some feel they are failing or simply aren’t good enough, are stressed, feel undervalued and would be desperately working towards their next holiday in the hope of a little respite . In fact many of these people go on to be promoted but the loneliness and pretence of ‘being ok’ can become greater and I have been frequently told by clients that it is ‘lonely at the top’. Additionally, trying to hold down relationships, perhaps being a parent can bring a sense of divided loyalties and extra demands and we can be in search of that elusive work/life balance.

Does this sound like you? If so please do get in contact – I work either online or face to face in Pagham near Chichester and Bognor Regis in West Sussex.

Over the last 18 years I have had the privilege of working with literally hundreds of people, helping them to make changes in their lives, to achieve their aspirations and be comfortable with the life they are living. I am grateful to the kind and generous words provided below – they are published with the permission of each contributor and I hope give you a flavour for what you can achieve yourself…..

“I am a single 29 year old male with a good job. Last year I started rapidly deteriorating in terms of mental health. My self-confidence was slowly seeping away and the thought of the next 50 years of loneliness frightened me. I would dwell on these thoughts and wouldn’t enjoy anything, instead awaiting the next “dip” in my mood, wondering how bad it would be. Not sure when it happened but the “dip” gradually became a constant part of my mood and the best solution to any problem was not a healthy thought. I became unable to lift my mood and would work myself into bottomless pits, I could not see a way out.I tried to talk about my feelings with friends and family but the advice they gave always seemed distant, almost pitying. It felt as though nobody could understand me and just left me feeling more lost. I was always reluctant to try therapy/counselling. I either assumed it wouldn’t work or allowed myself to get so low that I didn’t want to try. One day I decided that I didn’t want to feel this way anymore so I sent an e-mail to Carole about whether she could help me. The swift and polite response to my message helped me to work up the courage to set up a first session. The first goal was overcoming the negative thoughts, thinking positively and understanding where I wanted to improve on my wheel of life. The second goal was understanding when my mood would be triggered and why, and how I can best deal with that. In understanding me, Carole gave me the necessary tools. When my mood started noticeably improving and it had been a few weeks since my last “dip” the next goal was taking control of my life. I would dwell on past experience, so taking control and doing things differently helped to avoid falling into the same traps and has already given many more good experiences. My last couple of sessions then turned more into life coaching, and how to keep optimistic and confident in myself going forward. I can confidently say it has been over a month now since I have felt in a low mood and I find myself looking forward to the future. I honestly didn’t think I would reach this point again.Carole was a pleasure to work with and I can’t thank her enough for her help in pulling me from a dark place to where I am now. I felt that she really understood me and in understanding me she could help me understand myself. My wheel of life has improved considerably since the first session. I would say that the sessions spent with Carole were worth any penny and I can now enjoy life again and live it in the moment. When Carole asked me to write a testimonial I didn’t hesitate. She has pulled me out of a pit and helped me climb a mountain. I would thoroughly recommend her to others looking to rediscover that enjoyment in life. I had nothing to lose by contacting Carole, but everything to gain.”

Richard, West Sussex

“I first worked with Carole through an employee referral scheme. Re-organisation at work and bereavements meant that counselling was an essential part of my recovery back to good mental health. Carole’s empathy, guidance and counsel stayed with me.Several years later I recalled that Carole also provides business coaching. Carole has helped me on my journey to create Skinner Holden Property Advisors. Regular coaching sessions, which balance counselling, brainstorming, advice and discussion, have been central to the continued growth of the business. They help me focus through the slow times and ensure I stay grounded through the hectic periods. Carole has become an essential part of the Skinner Holden team.”
