Hello, and welcome to a new development.
For twenty years, I had a psychotherapy and coaching practice in Harley Street, which I shared with my late husband Dr David Delvin.
This all stopped when he became terminally ill in 2016. But during lockdown, a number of adults who knew that I used to practise, sought my support on an informal basis, and this has led me to re-join the membership of the Association for Coaching, in preparation for starting up my practice again.
As you will see elsewhere on the website, my focus these days is on my positive ageing project, Too Young to Get Old, in which I encourage people to find out how they can live a fit, fulfilled and healthy existence for as long as possible. I write newspaper columns and make video podcasts on the subject, and the next logical step is for me to offer remote coaching consultations by Zoom or Skype, to individuals who’d like one-to-one advice.
In time, once there is less danger from the virus, I plan to see clients in person if that is what they would prefer, and to launch workshops.
I’ve been asked if I will still accept individuals with relationship issues or work problems – and I will. But I will not be offering in-depth therapy. This will be a coaching approach and the emphasis will be on pragmatic, practical and achievable change. In other words, though one cannot dismiss the past, my intention will be to help clients to look forward rather than back.
Sessions will last one hour, or 90 minutes, and there will be a fee, but it will be low-cost and will, wherever possible, be tailored to the circumstances of the client. To find out more, please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to hearing from you.
