A Few of Our 5-Star Reviews

“The skills & knowledge Jim has gained through years of experience in his field really show in his ability to quickly understand issues & clarify them for me. He explains concepts clearly & ensures I have full understanding of them. The solutions we form are both meaningful & practical to implement. Jim is a dynamic thinker who is passionate about helping people learn & grow. Sessions with him are always a positive & interesting experience – I walk out of appointments feeling inspired, empowered & confident about the best course of action to take. Jim is the best person I’ve come across to support me to strive towards my highest potential in all areas of life & I’m very grateful for what I’ve been able to achieve with his help.”

Briar A.

“I’m self employed – a professional circumstance that all too frequently lacks a feedback loop. In my conversations with Jim we talk about job satisfaction, career planning and objectives: we set goals, hit and miss targets, and develop strategies for embracing uncertainty, ensuring continuity and seeking professional fulfilment. We also explore specific professional challenges and work through solutions, and on the side we allocate some time toward the development of a passion for personal projects that might some day supplant the day job. It’s an enjoyable and rewarding journey, and I feel it has greatly enhanced my personal and professional effectiveness.”

Rory B.

“Jim is an accomplished professional and highly skilled in the field of counselling, but what is really impressive is the way he takes often complex ideas and breaks them down, piece by piece. The result was not only a set of solutions, but also a greater awareness of myself and the way people think and react to things in life. I have recommended Jim to several of my friends and family since our initial meeting – they have also benefited enormously from his knowledge and his approach. I would recommend Jim to anybody, whether they are dealing with a traumatic experience or are simply looking for ways of broadening their skills in dealing with challenges that life throws at all of us.”

How does Counselling, Coaching and Psychotherapy work?

Each of these methods are similar in their overall approach.  However, they differ in emphasis.  Counselling is really for more general personal problems.  Coaching is more about teaching you strategies to overcome specific problems.  Psychotherapy tends to be more long term and focused on helping you overcome more serious challenges.

How Does Counselling and Psychotherapy Work?

At Clear Day  Consulting we help you get to the bottom of your problems by focusing on identifying root causes, not symptoms.  We do this because it is the only way to achieve lasting results.

The process of counselling or psychotherapy is roughly the same. In each case, you meet with a therapist who listens to your situation, identifies the causes of your problems and then formulates a plan that will overcome your problem.

You don’t have to talk about anything you don’t want to talk about, although we find it is very helpful to talk to someone who is there to help.

Once you have a plan it is simply a matter of following the plan until you are getting the results you want.  For most people, this is usually within 5 – 10 sessions. Some people will require longer-term help.  If we don’t believe we can help we will recommend you to someone who can.  You’ll know if its working because you begin seeing results quickly.

Most people who use counselling and psychotherapy services will enjoy the process as they become more empowered to solve their problems and know that they aren’t alone.
