YOU EAGERLY SEEK A CHANGE IN SOME AREA OF YOUR LIFE

But struggle to actually make that change LAST. Maybe because you’re feeling a bit lost at the moment and need some kind of direction.  Maybe you’re trying to resolve an ongoing issue but it doesn’t seem to be working out in the long run. You might feel stuck because you tend to:

BE DISTRACTED

Daydreaming, having too many tabs open, time-wasting, spending time on the wrong things, being indecisive, or finding it hard to evaluate your options because you feel so caught up in the middle of that.

OVERTHINK

Thinking your way out of things you used to enjoy, finding excuses not to follow up on things, genuinely believing that you're stuck, ruminating and worrying to the extent its not helpful. Generally having a busy brain, lack of focus or an unhelpful flow of thoughts.

GIVE UP

Not doing the things you used to love anymore, avoiding people/events/activities because you don't want to feel a certain way, lack of confidence.

USE SUBSTANCES

Overeat, overdrink, oversleep, overexercise, or not enough to (temporarily) deal with the issue but it's not working out. Self-harm, excessive use of caffeine, tobacco also falls in this category.

None of the coping strategies are inheritable bad or wrong, as it all depends on the context. What is important, is to notice when these habits are workable for you and when they are not. What I mean by that you can ask yourself is what you’re doing working to give you the sort of life you want, in the long term? If that’s a yes, then it’s workable so no need to change. And if the answer is no, a life coach and ACT therapist can look at alternatives that may work better for you.

William - Learning how to manage ADHD

His background as both a behavioural therapist, and as an outdoor instructor really resonated with me. These sessions have been much more value to me than the in-person therapy that I have had before, so don't let distance stop you. ACT therapy has been really helpful in learning how to manage life with ADHD.

Mary - Feel better in myself than I have for a very long time

I can honestly say that attending coaching sessions with Nick has been the best thing I’ve ever done for myself.

BENEFITS OF A "LIFE COACH AND ACT THERAPIST''

The Habit Coach is run by a qualified life coach, trained ACT therapist and accredited NLP Practitioner. As you can read in the reviews, ACT and coaching can help you in a myriad of ways because of its transdiagnostic nature. In a way, ACT can help people see they are more than their condition or illness.

ACT is a very experiential form of behavioural therapy/coaching. It’s not just talking about your problems and feelings. The idea is we work together as a team, to help you build the sort of life you want to live. This often involves:

  • learning skills to ‘unhook’ yourself from difficult thoughts or feelings
  • finding out what matters to you
  • Committing to the actions you want to take to lead to a more meaningful and fulfilling life

Habit Coach is based in Pembrokeshire, at The Therapy Rooms in Pembroke Dock

The best way to do this is the same way you would learn to ride a bike, by practicing these skills until you can do it on your own. In general, as the sessions continue, you should start to develop skills to move more flexibly towards the life you want, regardless of how you feel, or what you think. Every time you leave the session I want you to come away with it an extra tool to your toolkit. A practical technique that is easy to apply and helps you to make a difference in your life.
