Email coaching and counselling for problem solving

Email Coaching/Counselling Service

With Renata Taylor-Byrne

Write our your problems, send them to me, and I’ll help to solve them

~~~

Nata-Lifestyle-coach8Hello and welcome to my Email Coaching/Counselling service.

I’m Renata Taylor-Byrne, and I am in my sixth year in private practice in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, UK. Prior to that I worked as a college lecturer, teaching Counselling skills/Psychology/Stress management/Health and Care/ Nutrition/ Assertiveness and Personal Effectiveness, at a College in West Yorkshire, for more than 30 years.

Over the years, I’ve helped hundreds of people with stress management problems; confidence and self-esteem building; anxiety control and anger management; and time management problems. Some of those individuals also needed help with attachment issues, life transitions, goals and habits, and many other issues and concerns.

I have also authored, co-authored, or contributed to books on anger, anxiety, depression; diet, exercise, sleep; habit change; and so on.

If you are unable to get to see me in Hebden Bridge – or if you would simply prefer to write to me and get a written response – then email coaching/ counselling could be a good option for you.  I have helped many people using this approach.  (If you’d prefer a face to face session in Hebden Bridge, then please go to Renata’s Coaching/Counselling Division.***)

Email counselling works best for individuals who enjoy reading and writing, and who have developed their skills of expressing themselves in writing.

My service offering is this: I will read, analyse and comment upon two pages of typed text, about your thoughts/feelings/problems/concerns. (The pages should be A4 or Letter size; in 12 point type; with normal margins). My fee for that service is £30.00 GBP. My comments will be in typed text, on the same document that you submit.

Send your completed two-pages of text, in Word (.doc or .docx), with a brief covering email, to renata@abc-counselling.org

Once your payment has appeared at PayPal, I will prioritize reading and responding to your concerns.

Man and woman writing“Writing therapy is highly effective, compared with drug treatments, but the mechanism by which writing therapy works is still unclear.  It may just be that the opportunity to express a problem that has been bottled up is curative in itself; or that it is the thinking through of a problem that has not previously been thoroughly digested that produces the effect. 

Effective writing therapy seems to involve processing previously unprocessed negative emotions, in a self-reflective way, and identifying causal links between elements of the story.  It also normally involves using more positive than negative words, and ending with a coping self-statement”.  Dr Jim Byrne, from the first e-book on E-CENT counselling.

~~~

Email counselling can involve one or two sessions to sort out a practical problem; or a more extensive series of sessions, to resolve deeper, more emotional experiences.

INSIGHTS INTO EMAIL EXCHANGES
AS A FORM OF THERAPY

According to the International Society for Mental Health Online (ISMHO):

Email page in Latin“… In the case of using email exchanges …, you may feel more comfortable writing about your problems than talking about them”.

–  You may write about what is bothering you sooner than you would talk about it. This can bring faster resolution to problems.

– Writing may help you to think through your problems and to get in touch with your emotions. It can bring focus, clarity, insight, and emotional relief.

–  You can read and re-read your emails, thus achieving greater learning.

– Writing enhances your relationship with yourself. …”

Some additional points are made by Susan Wallbank, talking about writing more generally:

Writing therapy book cover“(Email) counselling allows the client an opportunity to express thoughts and feelings and explore issues at the time when these are uppermost in their mind. (Emails) can be written at (a time of most convenience) and continued over a period of days or weeks. The client determines the timing of their side of the contract. Putting words down on paper often enables the writer to feel a sense of control over their situation and is often perceived as therapeutic in itself. Knowing someone is there to receive, acknowledge and respond to (emails) can provide those moving through (painful or distressing transitions) with a sense of security and provides a tangible opportunity to chart personal progress”. Susan Wallbank, in Palmer and McMahon (2000).

~~~

I have looked in detail at the question of suitability of email counselling for particular audiences, and concluded that writing therapy seems to be a viable option for most people, but excluding people who are either: depressed, highly stressed, suffering from PTSD, or who have negative associations with writing at school.  It probably appeals most to people who enjoy writing, and who are self-reflective.

~~~

If you are not sure how to begin to write your email, you might find it helpful to read Dr Jim Byrne’s Guidelines for Writing Therapy.  I (Renata) have reviewed and subscribe to those guidelines.
