If you are caring for someone with mental health needs, it can often be the case that your own wellbeing might be pushed to the side as you help your loved one in crisis.

Coaching can help

Jill’s background as an Occupational Therapist in Mental Health services, both in the NHS and privately, allows her the privilege to work closely with both patients and their loved ones, often in their home environment.

How?

Jill has a deep understanding of the complexities of supporting someone suffering from a significant illness. with over 30 years of experience in the community and hospital environments, she is expertly placed to coach the people who care for, and about, their loved ones in crisis.

You don’t have to be a hands on carer for coaching to be valuable. No matter the level of support you give, it can be tough and we understand this. Worrying about, and giving time to someone in crisis – whether they live with you or not – can significantly impact your life.

Why?

Coaching is just for you. It is a separate therapy, offering something different and supportive, and complements any clinical Family Therapy you may be involved in, either yourself or with your loved one.

Most importantly

Do you want to be the best you can be for you and your loved one? Do you want to communicate more effectively? Do you want to make sure your needs are equal to theirs?

We understand. It can be tough managing your time and your emotions in any form of support role. You don’t have to feel helpless. Taking some control might be exactly what you need at this time.

Coaching can help.

Think about the following questions. If any, or all, resonate with you, it might be a good time to see how Jill can support you.

  • Is your life impacted because someone you care about is in crisis or has a health condition?
  • Are you struggling to move forward with your own life and support the needs of a loved one at the same time?
  • Do you find your time taken up by thinking about, worrying about, or planning around a loved one? Do you sometimes feel like you have no choice, or you might feel trapped?
  • When was the last time you put yourself first? Are you following your own dreams, desires or ambitions? Is your life “On Hold”? Do you allow yourself the mental or physical space for tackling things you want to change, be, or do?
  • Do you feel frustrated, angry, even resentful towards your loved one? Do you then feel like a terrible person for having such thoughts, only to find the same feelings bubbling up again? And around it goes…

Wouldn’t it be great to break this cycle?

All of the above doubts are common for those caring for or about a loved one. These feelings are normal, but they don’t have to rule your entire life.

Jill has literally changed our lives. After many years we found someone my son could relate to, could trust, and who would motivate him. She is friendly, adaptable, approachable and incredibly empathetic, but will also be firm if necessary. When the time was right, Jill introduced more of her fab team and we’re seeing results from their different inputs after just a few weeks – while Jill has of course remained the keystone of his treatment. Jill goes the extra mile to an extraordinary degree, while always remaining totally professional, and I would highly recommend her.
