Six Foundations for a Thriving Therapy/Coaching Practice
Qualified in the last 2 years? YES
Using your gifts to make a real impact on the world? NO
You put the time and dedication into qualifying in your chosen field because you wanted to use your gifts to help as many people as possible.
- You lack the confidence to put yourself out there as you fear rejection
- You feel uncomfortable charging and don’t know how or what to charge.
- You don’t feel qualified or experienced enough.
- You don‘t know how to get to the people you want to serve.
- Being a professional practitioner feels overwhelming
- You don’t know where to start setting up a practice.
Wouldn’t you like to be able to…
- Recognise your own expertise and your own unique offering so you are no longer hiding your light under a bushel.
- Value your skills emotionally and financially so that you take care of yourself and are able to earn a living doing what you love.
- Enhance your professional skills so that you gain the best results possible for your clients.
- Learn how to start engaging with clients so that you can reach the people you want to help.
- Think, act and feel in a way that your clients see you as the expert you are, trusting that you are in control
- Gain a practical checklist to run a practice so that you can make your thriving practice a reality.
I know exactly what you are going through. Early in my practice I struggled to feel confident in my skills, to tell people what I did and charge for it. This cost me time and energy as I was over giving - 3 hrs instead of a pre-booked 1 hr, my self-belief as I felt a failure if I didn’t solve all my client’s problems in one session and income by not charging enough to pay all my costs and pay myself a wage. I don't want you to have to go through the same struggles that I did.
I want you to be able to create a work/life balance giving you time and energy thereby serving your client’s in a more fruitful way. And I want you to be able to pay your costs and create the lifestyle you want to enjoy.
This is why I have created the Six Foundations for a Thriving Therapy/Coaching Practice course. I have designed it so that you will be able to have the foundations to build a thoughtful and thriving practice. This will enable you to run an Amazing Practice using your gifts to make that real impact on the world that you so desire.
This course is for YOU!

Is there someone in your life that you have a difficult relationship with? A family member, partner, friend, work colleague or acquaintance? Someone who you rub up against on a regular basis, someone you feel criticises you, or blames you, a person who frustrates you. All would be good if only they would change?
You will never be able to change anyone else’s behaviour, they may well be wishing you would change! So you reach an impasse.
What you do have control over is how you choose to interact with this person, and by acting differently then the response they have to you will change and therefore you create the change in their behaviour you desire.
You may think “Why should I be the one to change?” But if this relationship is toxic and difficult then taking action and making the changes gives you your power back so you no longer feel at the mercy of your feelings about this person.
There was someone in my life who I would give information to only to have it turned back on me at a later stage. So I simply stopped giving the information, as an adult I made adult choices instead of reacting like the child within.
A client recently told me when speaking to the person in her life who she had a tense relationship with, because a conversation would begin and continue with a constant stream of negativity, she simply said “ This is for your therapist to deal with, not me” And the reply was laughter and the subject changed without any reference to the usual negativity. My client took her power back and acted as an adult not a child.
If you find that with this person you say Yes to everything when in fact you want to say No. Be honest - “ I am not available at that time, but can do….” So its not an outright No, it is a compromise.
Be clear about your boundaries, “I am not available on a Wednesday night as its my yoga class”. If you want the other person to respect your time then you must respect it first. Behave like a doormat, get treated like a doormat!
Change will be incremental – the closer someone is to you the more of your buttons they know how to press, so when they find one of them no longer works they will try another one, so if you systematically change your reaction to each one then you gain the harmonious relationship you desire.
I describe your body as your Barometer – it is a measure of your mental well-being. When you are in a good place mentally and emotionally you feel light, and balanced and in good health. If you are in a negative place feeling, down, depressed, anxious, stressed then you will have all number of aches and pains, you will over/under eat, you will feel lethargic, heavy and generally unwell.
The Emotion comes first then acts out on the body. Those of you, especially if you have a chronic condition, may say that it is the pain that causes you to feel negative, that is the next layer. The emotional pain comes first, creates physical pain and then you have negative emotions about the pain.
Often at my yoga classes students will ask me for postures to help them with their physical pain, I ask them when the physical problem started and then I ask what was going wrong in their life at that time, and that’s when I see the realization dawn. Sometimes the symptoms appear after the crisis has passed because the body knows it has to keep going and then after the crisis it can let go ie. Collapse which is how PTSD works.
If you ignore the negative emotion, then the physical pain will get worse until you listen to your body as its screaming “Houston we have a Problem”. Many people feel it is a much easier to discuss physical pain than emotional pain, to say “ I am hurting inside”. There is still prejudice against mental health problems, being seen as weak and lacking as a person. However to admit to emotional problems takes great strength and is to be admired.
When I run my ToolBox for Managing Anxiety Course one of the first steps on the road to recovery is when people realize they are not alone, so many people think that it is only them that feels like this and to discover that in fact they are a member of a huge group gives them hope. To feel emotions is to be human, whether they be positive or negative emotions.
You may find your physical problem only happens in certain situations, sometimes it can help you to get out of situations you want to avoid, or give you the attention you need. So another question I ask my clients is “What does this pain do for you?” And generally they know the answer.
So make friends with your body, thank it for its warning system and pay attention to what it is trying to tell you. It is quite logical – If you have a pain in the neck – who is the pain in the neck – as one insightful client said “I am the pain in the neck”! Or are you carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders? As a general rule joint problems are about a reluctance to move forward. I hope this brief insight into Somatic Theory has been helpful
When we think of Hero’s we tend to think of amazing feats that make the headlines, we think in terms of one off events, moments in time, however there are other types of Heroes.
They are the Heroes who by the way they live their lives, are heroic. They can be the parents who feed their children whilst going hungry themselves. We have all been celebrating our NHS Heroes who have been daily risking their own health and been separated from families during the Coronavirus pandemic. Or the many thousands of Volunteers for the many hundreds of charities.
Then there are Heroes personal to us, who are not aware that they have made such an impression on us that they become the person we wish to emulate. Who was your first Hero? Who was the person that you admired for the way they treated their fellow human beings?
My first Hero was my first teacher – Miss Doreen Sharples at Baguley Hall Primary School in Manchester – and I am naming her because Heroes deserved to named and applauded. Her patience, kindness, fairness, understanding and guiding hand were felt by every pupil she taught, something they – including me – carried throughout their lives. My best Christmas presents came when I was 6 or 7 – a desk and a blackboard, I wanted to be Miss Sharples!
My second Hero was my Secondary School History Teacher – Miss Margaret Hill at Fallowfield C of E High School for Girls in Manchester. She believed in me, she drew out the best in me. I remember the day I told her I wanted to study A level History and then made a loud “ Ahem”. She asked me what the “Ahem” was for and I said because I didn’t think she’d let me. Her answer stays with me to this day “ Are you going to work hard?” “Yes” “Am I going to work hard” “Yes” “Then together we will do it”. And together we did! I have remained in touch with her throughout the years.
I am sure both of these wonderful women would say they were doing their jobs, however they did their jobs with such compassion, devotion and positivity that they far exceeded any job title. The effect they have had on my life has been profound. And I am forever grateful to them.
How have you emulated your Heroes? I have done my best to, ask my students for the answer.
So notice the everyday Heroes and give them the acknowledgement they deserve.
Sometimes the simplest thing can be one of the hardest yet also the most effective things to do for yourself and others.
The first piece of homework I give to my Adult Education Students who come on my Tool Box for Managing Anxiety Course is to SMILE at people as they walk down the road. The majority of the students balk at the idea and often they say - “People will look at me as if I am weird”.
Happily most of them do give it a go and to their utmost surprise most people SMILE back, some even start conversations. I also say to them that if someone doesn’t SMILE back then maybe they too are having a day just like my students experience, this is often a revelation to them that they are not alone in having bad days.
What does a SMILE mean? My Dad used to quote “SMILE and the world SMILES with you, cry and you cry alone”, and many of you will know that it takes more muscles to frown than it does to SMILE.
So here is my definition of a SMILE.
S – Sunny
M – Meaningful
I – Inclusive
L – Love
E – Enjoy
Lets explore this a bit further:
Sunny – White teeth exposed and brighten up the day, an instant feeling of the spirits lifting, and you can’t help but SMILE back.
Meaningful – Someone has given you a moment of their time, they are sending you good intentions, you get the good vibrations from their energy.
Inclusive – a SMILE cuts across all divides
Love – Universal love for the human race, giving a gift without expectation of one in return – remember they may be having a bad day.
Enjoy – The feel good factor, especially when they do SMILE back.
As I write this we are in the middle of a COVID-19 lockdown so you may think if we are wearing masks no-one can see us SMILE. I was in a shop and automatically SMILED at the checkout operative and then said “I am SMILING sorry you can’t see it” and the wonderful reply was “I can see your eyes SMILING”.
A SMILE comes from within, from your heart, and lights up your whole face, reaching beyond your mouth alone. And when you SMILE from your heart you reach into the heart of the person receiving it – even if they don’t SMILE back, inside their heart is SMILING.
So wherever you are, wearing a mask or not ,just SMILE giving yourself and those around you a loving gift.
As an Emotional Freedom Technique Advanced Practitioner and Trainer there are a number of ways I can measure the progress that clients have made, one of which occurs when a client visualizes their negative emotion.
In each of the examples below the client used a picture to describe to me how they were feeling and so I linked into these to measure the reduction in the negativity and as you will see they replaced the negative picture with a positive one.
Client 1 described her feelings in terms of a brick wall when asked to describe it, the wall was a high as a 2 storey house, one half of a semi-detached and red brick. After each round of tapping I would ask the client to visualize the wall, initially it became lower, narrower and the walls became white. Then it became a white fence, leading to a beautiful field. Then the fence had a gate and the gate was open and she was able to walk through – all negativity gone. Proof to both the client and Practitioner that the negative emotion had gone.
Client 2 describe her emotions in terms of a pond on top of her head which was so overgrown with weeds that no light could get through and nothing could live. After we tapped I would ask her to describe the pond, gradually light entered then there was plant life and then she said “Oh leave it, it is now beautiful, bathed in sunshine, with water lilies and frogs on the lilies.” All negativity had gone.
Client 3 described her relationship with her mother as having a brick wall covered in moss and in poor state of repair between them that she could not see around. As I checked in with her, first of all she was able to move some of the moss, next time when asked she had punched the wall so now it was lower and she could see the sun shining on it and she could see over it, but she was not yet ready to look around it. Then she was on the other side of the wall on cobbled path but it was misty so she wasn’t sure if she could walk forwards. After the next round she felt able to walk forwards and as she did so the mist parted, the sun came out and there were daises and she described it as walking into a field of opportunities. Her feelings towards her mother had completely changed from telling me the mother was a control freak to describing her as a lovely woman who is so kind.
In each case I had picked up on the clients own description of their emotions, and by experiencing changes the client was able to directly witness the changes in their emotions. It is also worth noting that as well as removing the negativity each client replaced it with a positive image. This approach is also used when the client has a different Representational System - Audio or Kinaesthetic (NLP).
