Cindy Barnes MBA, Dip. TA Counselling, MBACP & Author
I believe that you have the answers you seek inside of yourself. My role is to help you rediscover and reconnect with yourself to find those answers that are right for you.
Are you a perfectionist who is your own worst critic? Is your priority other people and making them happy? Are you a bright, quick thinker or over-thinker? Do you often get overwhelmed by life and may suffer from anxiety and depression? Chances are you may have highly sensitive and gifted traits.
I have a focus on working with Highly Sensitive People (HSPs), empaths and gifted adults and am listed on Dr Elaine Aron's website. This is a proven genetic trait in 20% of the population and still not widely known. For more details on this and for a link to the HSP self test, see the Highly Sensitive Person page on my website at cindy-barnes.com.
I hold regular meetings in London and Cookham to help HSPs flourish, develop your superpowers and meet others like yourself. These are very welcoming and warm groups and there is no pressure to talk. It's hugely empowering for HSPs to have an experience of being with others like themselves. For more details and to register with either the London group or the Cookham group, please follow the link to the groups on my website https://cindy-barnes.com/meetups-and-groups-for-highly-sensitive-people-2/
Career and work pressures can be very tough and I can also help you navigate the options when faced with a very demanding job or stressful work environment. I understand these issues very well due to my previous senior-level business background. I also coach business leaders.
Online and in-person counselling and coaching.
Please contact me for a free 30 minute call or meeting.
Cookham is on the border of Berkshire and Buckinghamshire, near Maidenhead, Marlow and Bourne End.
