Counselling and Coaching in Hebden Bridge – and via the telephone, email and Skype

At ABC Coaching and Counselling Services


Hello and welcome to the homepage of Dr Jim Byrne and Renata Taylor-Byrne.

We have been researching and applying coaching, counselling, psychotherapy and personal and professional development systems and strategies for more than 35 years.

In that time, we have grown enormously in our capacity to manage the difficulties of daily living, which are the lot of all human beings, no matter who they are, where they are born, or the social and economic class, race, creed or gender into which they are thrown at birth.

Now we enjoy helping others to come to terms with their life’s difficulties and challenges; and to overcome them, to the degree that that is possible.

We do this using the latest research on counselling, coaching, psychotherapy; the relationship of the body to the brain-mind; the importance of gut health; empowering philosophies of life; attachment theory; stress management; anger management; confidence building; assertive communication; managing anxiety and depression; managing time and goals; couple relationships, couple conflict and interpersonal communication; transactional analysis; the role of diet and exercise in mental and physical health; and much more besides.
