Zoe Foster Ad Prof Dip PC, MNCS (Accred), MBACP
Over the years I have developed and delivered stress management workshops, education and 1-1 support for employees and managers including coaching and mentoring. After a lengthy corporate career, I now focus on talking therapies.
I am passionate about mental health and how it is perceived. We all have mental health, just as we all have physical health. When our mental health is compromised, it can be as debilitating as a physical health issue. When we experience stress, anxiety, depression or any other mental health issue it often impacts our physical health also. Life events such as relationship issues, divorce, work problems all can impact our resilience and ability to cope.
Calling a counsellor or coach can be a daunting prospect. You can book a FREE consultation in order to see how I work. I often use both coaching and counselling with clients where appropriate so they can build on re-usable techniques and develop skills for the challenges they face.
My work with clients is 'integrated' and 'client-centred'. Integrated counsellors draw on many varied theories and interventions depending on the clients needs and goals. One client may work more creatively and another more cognitively. Client-centred work involves ensuring that the client's needs, goals and own resources sit at the centre of any work done during sessions.
As part of my work I also specialise in the journey that is often labelled 'infertility' or 'fertility'. This can be an incredibly difficult and, at times, distressing experience. We often focus on the practical aspects of clinical intervention whilst trying to manage our own feelings and conflicts. Counselling is a powerful way to take control - particularly so when making difficult and emotional choices.
I am a member of the British Infertility Counselling Association (BICA)
