Counselling and Coaching
If you are reading this, you might be going through an unmanageable amount of stress or a crisis in your life, and are on the search for some support with counselling or transformational coaching. You might be feeling overwhelmed, anxious or depressed, or struggling with grief, loss or stuckness that you no longer can find tolerable. If this is so, you have come to the right place.
It could be that you have been stuck for some time in patterns of thoughts, uncomfortable feelings and consequent behaviours, that are not serving you, and you are looking for a way out and a way forward. That is what I am here for.
I offer a warm and supportive space for you to come and share your story. I will listen to you with empathy and compassion, and without judgement, as if you were a dear friend asking for my support to help you through a difficult time.
Once you have shared your story, we will then work with it to find a more beneficial way for you to see it, live with it and move forward with its continued creation. We will question your deep-rooted beliefs that will be revealed in our conversations. Where needed, I will introduce you to psychological frameworks to help you understand yourself better. We will work through old wounds and work towards healing them. We will quest together to find ways of navigating a present and future path that brings more health and joy to all aspects of your life.
Working on your ‘self’ is not really ‘work’ at all. It is a creative process that comes from the heart and is supported in a heartfelt and intuitive space. I encourage you to bring it all. What you think you want to share, and the stuff in your shadow that you might never have shared with anyone before. I provide a safe space, and I want to support you in your healing journey. I am right here.
I draw on a growing wealth of knowledge and wisdom, which comes both from my own healing journey, as well as my total dedication and continuing commitment supporting others through theirs.
You are the most important person in your life. If you don’t take care of yourself, and indeed love, respect and value yourself – then you will struggle taking care of anyone else close to you. The nurturing has to start with you.
My work combines my experience and training in Transactional Analysis, NLP, CBT, Gestalt, Systemic Family Therapy, Life Coaching and Relationship Counselling.

"Sessions with Rowena have provided a safe and wholly affirming space to begin exploring deep inner 'stuff'. Room to reflect and openly express myself, with Rowena's intuitive holding of the space, insight and encouragement. I've found them full of unexpected surprises, wisdom and encouragement that's helped me journey through challenging times with a renewed sense of perspective and strength."

“Rowena has been my life coach for a couple of years. She has been an incredible force in my life. Her techniques are marvellous, some of her best qualities as a life coach are her genuine spirit, her honesty, her excitement about your accomplishments and her caring. I’m not sure where I would now be without Rowena .”
