Cognitive Behavioural Coaches and ACT Trainers

"Helping you to help yourself, to help others"...

Hi, We are  a husband and wife team  and together co-lead community workshops, and face to face talking therapy sessions.  Ian also offers talks and keynote speaking to various groups and community organisations. 

Our Story

We are  experienced and qualified Cognitive Behavioural Coaches and ACT Trainers (Acceptance Commitment Therapy),  where I have used my experience and background of working within a Community Mental Health Team  and as Practice Manager for NHS and Big Lottery funded projects, to form our own private family practice.

  We believe everyone should have access to low cost talking therapy, time unlimited, as and when needed. Using the principles of ACT, we can help you discover how to manage and deal with your issues by teaching you life skills to:

  • Reduce stress, worry and low moods
  • Rise above fear, doubt and insecurity
  • Handle painful thoughts and feelings more effectively
  • Break self-defeating habits
  • Build more satisfying relationships

Our Values & Beliefs

Relationships are important to us

As husband and wife we are relationship coaches, coaching for over a decade with years of experience of improving relationships with couples, families and teams. We provide a private and confidential personal service, with support and encouragement to help you find out what’s draining your relationships and resolve any conflict.

Acceptance of things that are not in our control

We help individuals, couples & families who struggle with mood, anxiety, or psychotic symptoms. ACT trains us to notice the uncomfortable emotions or thoughts, acknowledge them and let them flow by without holding on to them or letting them drive our actions in that moment in line with our values and what or who are important to us. 

Committed Valued Action

ACT is a self-directed process. We help you define your values,  discuss with you,  your challenges and help you identify and describe negative coping strategies. You determine the actions you will take to resolve those challenges by using your values as a compass and guide.

Our  Approach

 FREE Initial phone consultations are available to see if we can work together to help you improve your life, and understand your daily stresses and struggles that you may inevitably experience from time to time.

 We would introduce you to our ground-breaking approach called Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) which has been proven scientifically with years of evidence, showing that it helps people struggling with stress, anxiety, anger, depression and relationship difficulties or, those who just wanting to find a more rich and meaningful life.
