Feeling stressed out, worn down or just a little stuck?
When we're dealing with personal or professional challenges, it can be hard to enjoy our lives to the full.
These stressors wear us down - draining our coping resources and leaving us feeling frazzled, depleted and often stuck in our situation, unsure about where to go next.
While this takes its toll on our happiness and wellbeing, it can also affect our relationships with loved ones, make us less productive at work or home, and stop us from achieving our ambitions.
Over time, it may even increase our risk of developing longer-term mental health issues - something that should be avoided wherever possible.
Therefore, through professional and accredited coaching, we help you reclaim your life in challenging times - enabling you to find calm, regain control and get your spark back again.
We'll also help you discover what you're made of when things feel tough - boosting your confidence, coping skills and resilience, and leaving you better equipped to deal with whatever life throws at you, both now and in the future.
And when you use Cothan's services, you'll also make a positive difference - by helping fund free mentoring sessions for young people who have been in care or experienced other life challenges. So not only do you benefit, but you'll be helping someone else's future too...

"Kerry has helped me enormously through our coaching sessions. We have tackled so many issues : imposter syndrome, letting go of the need for control, identifying my own strengths and using these effectively, creating a more sustainable work life balance, saying 'no' and mindfulness techniques. I felt completely at ease and able to be open and honest throughout. I am now calmer at home and more confident at work. Thank you."

Not sure whether coaching is right for you?
Driven by you - you know your life better than anyone and therefore coaching doesn't tell you what to do, impose advise or push you in any particular direction. Instead, we work together on your level to understand the challenges you face - so we can see them more clearly and and find effective strategies for tackling them.
Not about 'fixing' you or your situation - instead coaching is about empowering you to develop your own strengths and coping resources, and build the skills you need to self-coach yourself effectively through both current and future difficulties.
About moving forward - instead of focusing on the past, coaching looks at where you are now, as well as where you'd like to be. This doesn't mean that past events won’t be considered – but only if they are affecting your well-being and resilience, and stopping you from getting to where you want to go.
Not the same as counselling or therapy - although coaching can boost your psychological wellbeing and help you navigate stressors well, it does not offer treatment for mental health disorders. Therefore, if you are experiencing severe or ongoing depression or anxiety or have recently experienced traumatic events, please initially speak to your G.P. or a mental health professional.
