Serena Simmons Consultant Psychologist

Change. Motivate. Adapt. Improve. Perform


Coaching Psychology is a relatively new area of the British Psychological Society (BPS). It was an area developed to give credence to those practising in a coaching type role and also works as a accredited route for those wishing to work with a those that are ‘well’.

Coaching psychology is different to Life Coaching in that …

Coaching Psychologists have trained as psychologists, which takes many years of work.  It means that are qualified to incorporate psychology tools into their practice which inevitably help the client to ‘go deeper’ into the issues that the are working on.

Coaching psychologists also typically work with a non-clinical population, which means that they work with people who are ‘well’.

You will see Coaching Psychologists work in a variety of settings with a variety of people.  They will work with individuals, usually looking to change or enhance something.  They can also work with businesses, corporate clients and sports teams.

There are many reasons people choose to see a Coaching Psychologist.

I work with people of any age and can help people with all manner of reasons from issues around stress at work at home or in their relationships.  I also work with people are struggling to change something in their life that they are unhappy with, for example unemployment or redundancy.  I also work with others who wish to enhance their performance in their work, life or business or even sport.

Coaching Psychology is a forward thinking practice.  The focus is very much on looking forward to what it is you wish to change and to look at the tools and strategies that can help you to achieve this.  In the process we will look at problems or challenges and address how these obstacles may be overcome.

Multi-passionate Clients

One of my areas of particular expertise is in working with clients who are ‘multi-passionate’ (MP).  To be MP means that you are usually juggling several things in your life which can be of significance to you.  It might be for example that you have more than one business, or that you have a career alongside some significant hobbies that take up much of your time.  It can also means that you are balancing your life between a successful job, family and relationship.

I LOVE working with MP clients helping them to focus on projects, complete projects of passion and also prioritise what it is they really want to focus on.
