round pic.pngHello there, my name is Pat Spink. Welcome to Whole People.

I provide counselling and coaching, 1:1 and in groups as well as training and facilitation.

I work locally in the UK and online. My online clients are based in the UK and internationally.

Coaching and counselling both provide a safe space for you to articulate and explore issues, thoughts and feelings that you may be finding it hard to talk about with other people – or, perhaps, admit to yourself.

Maybe something has happened to you – such as the death of a loved one, or some other event or loss. Maybe you’re facing unwelcome changes or wanting to change something yourself.

lost-1605501_1280If 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.

If you’d like to meet locally I can offer 1:1 sessions in Worthing, West Sussex, UK.

Or if you’d like to work online I can offer sessions via video, phone or VoIP, chat or email .

There are many reasons people choose to work online. It might be the convenience and flexibility that appeals to you. Perhaps you live in a remote area where face-to-face services are not available or you might need to travel a lot because of work?

Maybe you prefer a particular medium. 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, Skype: pat.spink.goringbysea 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.
