Hello 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.

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.

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 – face to face, video, phone or VoIP, chat or email –  but if you don’t, I suggest taking a look at the various options and see what you think.

If you prefer face to face I can offer 1:1 sessions in Worthing, West Sussex, UK.

Or perhaps you’d prefer to meet online, you might be located elsewhere (in the UK or abroad) or there could be another reason for you to find it difficult to attend face-to-face sessions.

Working online 1:1 can have other benefits, too. 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, and by dipping into my blog.
