My coaching and therapy practice

I bring passion and commitment to my coaching and therapy practice supporting people in companies as well as privately.  My approach is not clinical, it is insightful and powerful in understanding and grasping the subtleties that interfere with my client’s potential to succeed in their personal and professional lives.

It is my belief that my client’s personal and professional lives are inseparable from each other; both are impacted by positive change through our sessions.  My creative and unique ability to improve my client’s performance, health and success in any or all area of life is by connecting them to their inner or intuitive wisdom.

My anxieties were in my head, feeling heavy pressure, unexplainable fog-like symptoms like being on a roller-coaster. By connecting with myself through Vanessa’s help I was able to remove the symptoms enabling me to make clear decisions, think, focus better and sleep well. Andrew, Head of Corporate Facilities

Every person, organisation or situation I work is individual; the coaching and therapy are bespoke and are never the same. I embrace the body-mind and emotions of each person to help achieve positive change based on results. All sessions are measurable and regularly monitored to keep track of each goal or area of life we agree to work on. My work is not about going in circles without active change taking place, whether it is overcoming the past, healing the body or planning a business takeover. I tailor to my clients’ need, offer proven tools and tested techniques that give the best outcome for each person.

I support people with depression, anxieties, OCD, addiction, sexual problems or anyone dealing with challenges or critical change within their home, workplace or school. In addition I regularly aid senior managers, managers and team leaders to implement changes, develop strategies, and assist building team confidence and increase a presence in their role.

I specialise in helping people achieve their full potential by integrating a holistic wellness of the mind-body and emotional approach, with a focus on stress management, and have a unique process in working with people with psychosomatic sexual and physical health problems by using traditional and modern theories, processes, tools and techniques in facilitating my clients’ to change.

A little about me

I came into therapy because I went through a time I needed help.  I found traditional therapy and medical interventions were not for me.  It lacked solution to my pain, a little clinical and restrictive at times.  My medical practitioner felt my physical symptoms didn’t warrant psychological help, instead prescribed pills.

This is when I decided to seek help for myself. NLP coaching effectively helped with my career as a project manager, so I decided to train and further develop other psychological theories, practice, and interventions to best support myself.

Through my own healing using all that I know I believe anyone can change any aspect of their life, with the right help, tools, intervention and support and would like to give all that I know to help you in your healing journey, where I am privileged and honoured to work with you with the aim to reduce the length of your journey to be where you want to be faster than I had.

If I can overcome burn-outs, limiting physical symptoms, and trauma with the right support – you can too.  The process that’s changed my life is not limited, its quick, effective and it is deep from within the recess of the unconscious mind – and you can overcome, change and create anything you want.

My corporate experience

Before finally taking the leap to becoming a fully committed therapist my experience expands more than a decade in the field of education, financial and in the telecommunications industries having become a European project manager working in the UK and internationally.  This gave me hands on experience working with people from all around the world and a great understanding of the corporate life, both personal and professional needs of individuals and organisations.
