Elisabeth now specialises in Psychological Counselling, Motivation and Communication

Skills Enhancement and combines this with Health Coaching.

 

Elisabeth started her career as a Forensic Psychologist however her experience with

clients with serious psychological and psychiatric impacts lead to seeking an

understanding of effects of poor general wellness and poor health on her client's psychological well being. Together with a Health Psychologist and Nutritionist Elisabeth developed a Health Coaching program based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) but included Solution Focused and Narrative therapies, as well as a holistic approach, to the promotion of better health-related behaviours and mental wellness.

 

Autonomous regulation requires commitment to act congruently i.e. consider behaviour and its fit with personal values, needs and interests. This is where Health Coaching and Psychological Intervention together can help clients deal with personal issues, while still maintaining a 'goal oriented' outlook towards optimising health and wellness. Through Motivational Interviewing (MI), empathy and your own evaluation of your needs and capacity to change, we will work on counselling intervention while also working with our Nutritionist to help you through your journey to become the person you really want to be.
