About me

Thank you for taking the time to review my profile.

I am the Founding Director of Dalton Wise Coaching and Therapy, I support clients to develop strategies for managing the chaos in life to reduce stress, anxiety and depression,  improve Mental Health & Wellness and make positive life changes.  I am a qualified coach and therapist, I have a background as a Senior Manager in corporate business, and personal experience of living with a mental health issue and living with someone who has a mental health issue.  My experience, understanding and empathy, along with my full range of services, enable me to provide you with a person centred approach to set and meet your goals.


Q: What services do you provide?

Hypnotherapy: Utilises the power of positive suggestion to bring about subconscious change to an individuals thoughts, feelings and behaviour. Hypnotherapy can help gain control over issues such as anxiety, pain and undesired behaviours and thought processes, as the positive suggestion can build confidence and 'teach'? the brain new beliefs and behaviours that allow a person to make the change they want in their lives to achieve their personal or professional goals.

Life Coaching: Using our unique 8 Wise Model and core psychological principles, we provide clients with the tools to set, reach and exceed personal and professional goals,
build their confidence and self-esteem to make the necessary changes for a more enjoyable, balanced life.

Career Coaching: Supports people to manage their careers whether they be Career Beginners, Career Returners, or simply looking to change careers. Career coaching can support with all the fundamental preparation of job search, CV, application, assessment centres and Interview techniques. Career coaching focuses on helping people make positive changes within their current career path or onto a different one.

Counselling: Counselling is usually a short-term process that provides an opportunity to talk about issues that may be troubling you, with the aim of working through them to find a solution.

Business Coaching: Supports people in all aspects of work life, such as executive coaching for senior managers, start-up business coaching for entrepreneurs, or supporting a person to find a work/life balance. Business Coaching focuses on working with a person in their current business position or planning

Relaxation Therapy: Relaxation therapy techniques calm the body and provide a natural cure for anxiety by inducing the relaxation response - the opposite of the body's
stress response. By using relaxation techniques, it is possible to improve mental health, build up resistance to stress, cope with change, and improve wellness.

Training: Our 8 Wise Training course focuses on how to create a balanced framework for our lives that helps us improve our wellness and prevent mental health issues occurring or escalating.
