Perhaps something has happened in your life that you’re having difficulty coming to terms with – such as illness, bereavement, or some other event or loss?
Maybe you’re feeling low or struggling with anxiety or self-confidence?
Or you might want to make some changes – large or small – and feeling unsure where or how to start?
Coaching and counselling both provide a safe space for you to explore such issues – and also the associated thoughts and feelings that you may be finding it hard to talk about with other people – or, perhaps, admit to yourself.
My name is Pat Spink (preferred personal pronouns she/her) and I provide counselling and coaching as well as supervision for counsellors, coaches and supervisors, training (in-house and public courses) for counsellors, supervisors and members of the public and in-house facilitation of meetings and workshops.
I work locally in the UK and online. My online clients are based in the UK and internationally.
If you’re not sure whether it’s counselling or coaching you’re looking for, my page on the differences might help you decide – alternatively, I’d be happy to chat it through with you.
You may already know which way you’d like to work but if you don’t, I suggest taking a look at the various options and see what you think.
Maybe you’re used to video or to talking on the phone – or you might like the sound of a live chat session, or want to take more time to write to me in an email.
Using email, for example, may mean that you can do some of your writing at the moment(s) in which you are experiencing certain thoughts or feelings – which can be therapeutic, in itself – and then reflect on, and add to, what you’ve written later on.
I can be contacted by phone (+44) 7597 594065 or email and you can find out more about me and how I work on the next few pages, on my LinkedIn profile, my Instagram account (pat.spink.wholepeople) and by dipping into my blog.
I’m not able to provide an emergency service, though. So if you need to speak to someone urgently, right now, I recommend that you get help from elsewhere – please see my page on sources of Emergency Help.
