Counselling Manchester or Coaching Manchester?

You’re considering some form of counselling in Manchester and you are searching the web for the right person.

In the fantastic city of Manchester, counselling options may be aplenty, but which form of therapy is right for you and which practitioner will suit your needs and personality, best?

Before you consider your Manchester counselling options, answer these questions:

  1. Do you want to be proactive about your goals and happiness?
  2. Do you want to focus more on solutions than problems?
  3. Are you genuinely ready for change?
  4. Are you the sort of person who likes a more hands-on approach?
  5. Does the idea of 2-6 sessions to achieve your desired outcomes, appeal to you?

If you have answered yes to all five questions, you’ll want to consider coaching as a highly effective, fast working alternative to counselling in Manchester.

It can work in resolving many of the issues that you might ordinarily consider counselling for.  It can work with people on antidepressants and it can help people to end their use of antidepressants (with their doctors approval, of course). It can work for people looking to prevent divorce and save their marriage.  It can work for confidence issues.  It can help people to overcome post natal depression, stress, anxiety issues, and much, much more.

Coaching, already massive in the USA, can work wonders. It has become increasingly popular because of its uplifting environment, its much loved empowering approach, and the relatively quick and lasting results it produces.

Counselling can often require many, many sessions, whereas coaching often works with much fewer sessions, given its proactive nature. That’s certainly the case when you have coaching with me.

If you’re considering getting counselling in Manchester, take a look around my website.  Many people have come to me because they were searching for counselling or ‘counselling Manchester’ but were impressed by the client testimonials and recognised that it was worth considering the positive alternative I provide. Others opt for coaching instead of counselling because they feel they have gone as far as they can go with counselling or just felt that counselling wasn’t helping them to feel much better nor achieve what they ultimately sought counselling for. Counselling is great for the right person, it’s just not for everyone and some people are better suited to the coaching approach than the counselling approach.

In Manchester there are many counsellors and coaches so it’s always a good idea to have a look around and speak to the ones who appeal to you the most so that you don’t embark upon counselling or coaching with the wrong professional for you. Different people have a different approach, just work out who you feel is the best fit for you.

I have a fantastic success rate and combine scientific research, counselling skills, coaching techniques and intuition.

I initially began training to become a BACP accredited counsellor but I soon realised that I personally wanted to help people in a more positive, solution-focused and much quicker way than I felt counselling would allow.

I work with clients face-to-face in South Manchester/East Cheshire (in Wilmslow) and also work globally via Skype video with clients in different time zones, including those in Manchester who simply prefer the Skype option.

All coaching conversations and sessions are held in the strictest of confidence. I also adhere to the codes of ethical conduct as set out by the British Psychological Society and the Association for Coaching.

What Clients Are Saying

“Things have been great at home as (hubby) has made a real effort and I have too. Things are happier with kids too and I have less pressure on myself too. I was a little apprehensive when I initially contacted you but so glad I did. Thank you very much for all your help…You are brilliant at what you do.”  Coaching Client

“I can’t thank you enough, Sam. Now I have a husband who loves me again and understands that I love him. Each day I wake up happy to be in our partnership, and better able to do what we wanted in the first place, which is to provide the best possible home life for our children.”  Coaching Client

“We both feel much more content in our relationship after 5 sessions of working with you. Things are much easier than they were using your advice, learning from our conversations and from the strategies you suggested. We were really impressed at your ability to support two aging lesbian feminists which we imagine might be a new client group for you! We are enormously grateful to you for your help. Thank you.”  Coaching Client
