Counselling & coaching

I love helping people heal the parts of themselves that are hurting and I would be deeply honoured to be a part of your journey. This is the work that I call ‘counselling’ or psychotherapy services.

I also love helping people shift their life path so they can experience more of what they want. This is the work that I call ‘coaching’. I offer life, wellness, career, and leadership coaching to folks who feel motivated to move forward and make concrete changes in their lives.

I have been trained in different modalities, frameworks and practices and together, we can decide on what direction to go in. Here is more about my philosophy and background and continue reading below to learn more about my approach.  I offer packages to focus in on particular issues.

One of my favourite tools is Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) – also known as ‘tapping’ to help powerfully shift experiences.  EFT uses gentle self-tapping on acupressure points while focusing in on issues such as emotional and/or physical distress and blocks to life goals.  For evidence demonstrating EFT’s effectiveness in addressing a variety of issues click here.

Currently I work over phone or video call so that I can meet with people anywhere in the world.  At the same time, I understand wanting to meet with someone face-to-face.  Consider booking a phone or video consultation to see how it feels.

I also do in-person workshops and events. Email me at jenny@peelonions.com and I will keep you updated.

Please see my CV for details for more information.

My approach & what’s the difference between counselling and coaching?

If we’re doing coaching sessions, I am more likely to ask you to identify your hopes, goals, longings and if you want ‘homework’ and I’m also more likely to be future focused. If we’re doing counselling sessions then we’re usually working on an aspect of suffering whether it’s emotional, physical, or spiritual. Often we end up unraveling problems by addressing matters from the past.

AND sometimes the lines blur between counselling and coaching, and there can be some flow between the two approaches. If you want to read more on this topic click here.

With either counselling or coaching, I am more likely to begin a session with “what would you like to work on today?” instead of “what would you like to talk about today?”

I like to check-in regularly to find out if we’re on the right track and to get a sense of whether we need to take a different approach or to go in a new direction.
