One to one sessions - What type of person do I work with?

Adult Children of Alcoholics

Honestly, people like me I suppose.  Adult children of alcoholics; usually women that have been affected by their parents drinking, addiction or serious mental health problem now or in the past.  I get it so I totally understand what you are going through. Whilst I lived with an alcoholic the environments are very similar to drug and mental health. 

How do my clients usually feel before they get my help?

You may feel disconnected, different, like no one really gets you. Sometimes you may feel sorry for yourself and feel like a victim. You are exceptionally good in a crisis but the more manageable day to day changes throw you. Relationships can be challenging and you are probably good at having a "brick wall" around you for protection and find it hard to trust people. Saying how you feel doesn't come easy, you may well feel loneliness, overwhelmed, overly responsible and find it hard to relax.

How do I work?

For one to one sessions I always put you first and spend a lot of time listening and understanding where you are in your journey. I then Emotional Freedom Technique with Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques  to release negative blocks in the body.

They are simple, yet powerful techniques and I combine them with over 15 years of self-development tools and techniques that best suit you. Having lived with an alcoholic I totally get where you are coming from so I can empathise which often makes the people I work with feel connected and supported.

How will you feel after you work with me?

You will feel totally understood. You'll feel inspired to know you can change and better cope. You will have hope and a whole host of resources at your fingertips if you want them. Change is possible if you want it enough, I know it can be scary but I’m here with you.

What are the benefits to you?

  • Having someone to open up to that has experienced a very similar situation to yours (everyone’s experiences - whether adult children of alcoholics, parents or partners - will all have variations)
  • Clarity of how you want to move forward and want you want
  • Tools, techniques and ideas to understand and change what you want to
  • Improved confidence, self-esteem and self-belief
  • Acceptance of yourself and contentment

I've listed the positive changes that my own self-development has had on my life, you may like to see if they match what you'd like to achieve. 

What's the investment for you?

The initial one to one consultation is £60 for 90 minutes, then £50 per hour after that. Usually 4 sessions is enough but this does depend on the person and the issue.

What can you do now?

Initially you might like to send me a message with any questions you have. I know it takes a lot of courage, you may even feel nervous but once we talk you'll feel totally reassured and understood. There is no judgement, remember I've been there too.  Simply click here to email me, I aim to get back to you with 3 hours, but please allow up to 24 hours.
