About me

Hello, my name is Irene Stone

I am a fully qualified counsellor (BA Hons) and nlp coach with over 15 years of experience helping people break through limiting thought patterns and behaviours that keep them dissatisfied with their lives. Besides working in my private practice in Lightwater, I am also a core member of the Brunel University London Counselling service, working with students and staff on a one-to-one basis as well as offering stress management workshops.

Sometimes we find ourselves in stressful situations, at work or at home, that feel too difficult to handle alone. I focus on increasing awareness and understanding of patterns that are keeping you feeling stuck and offer the opportunity to address these problems in a direct, effective, and supportive manner. The goal is to bring forth your best self in order to create a more genuine and passionate life.

I work with a wide range of individuals including those who experience anxiety, depression and struggle with tolerating and managing difficult emotions to those who are in need of direction in their lives at home or at work.

I would be very happy to start our work together with a free phone consultation where you can let me know your reasons for calling, your expectations of working with me and ask any questions you might have about how I work.

I hold a current DBS check UK wide.

Over years of working as a counsellor I have gained wide experience in offering confidential support to clients from a variety of backgrounds presenting a range of issues such as

• anxiety and stress
• low confidence and self-esteem
• work and career
• relationships difficulties
• domestic violence (physical, mental, emotional)
• compulsive behaviours
• life changes
• personal development

...and much more
