Chameleon Coaching and Therapy offers both Counselling and Psychotherapy in Higham Ferrers, Rushden.
Counselling and Psychotherapy are often interchangeable terms used to describe a form of talking therapy. There are many different models or approaches that can be incorporated into therapy such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, Person-Centred Therapy, Psychoanalytical Psychotherapy and Integrative Therapy to name a few.
As an Integrative therapist, Chalene works organically incorporating various approaches as and when I feel they will benefit you in your work towards becoming a more fulfilled, happier and content individual.
Life is not always a bed of roses and there will be many challenging and difficult situations that will arise at any one time in your life. The problem may be an emotional, personal or interpersonal issue that you have had for a number of years or it may be a recently occurring problem. These issues may be anxiety and stress, depression, bereavement or grief, inability to control or express your anger, a low self-esteem or lack of confidence. You may be finding it difficult to cope with life resorting to self-harm or substance misuse such as alcohol or drugs. You may be a victim of abuse: emotional, physical or sexual or find that you a being victimised or harassed in your workplace or personal life.
It may be that during one of these difficult times you are no longer able to cope on your own. You may have decided that you can no longer live with the problem or you may have reached a crisis point and recognise that you need help and support to understand, work through and deal with this difficult issue. You may find that you are not comfortable discussing these issues with friends or family or because of the fragmented and broken society we live in, you may find that you have no-one you can talk to. Feeling alone can only make the problem seem insurmountable and can ultimately hold you back in some way or another. If you know that you have the resources and support to deal with your feelings about certain issues and find solutions they no longer seem so big.
Therapy is not a magic cure to all of your problems but will provide you with a warm, safe and confidential space in which you can freely and fully express, explore and clarifying your feelings and thoughts in a relaxed and nonthreatening way.
As your therapist, Chalene will help you to make sense of your present circumstances and encourage you to "unmuddle" and organise your thoughts and feelings. She may need to work pyscho-dynamically, helping you to understand in which ways your past shapes and affects your present condition, helping you to confront, explore and find healing from your past.
In order to move towards your future, she will enable you to set realistic goals, make informed choices and put together useful strategies to overcome your problems, to take reasonable action, to evaluate and reassess your actions and maintain positive changes in every area of your life.
Therapy is not about recovery but discovery - discovering new ways of thinking, coping, responding and of being. It is not about controlling your future, but about empowerment. It is about enabling you to develop the capacity to maintain these changes, to confidently make choices and accept the consequences and in so doing move into your future with a renewed sense of hope and purpose.

"Counselling has had a pretty dramatic impact on my life. Its helped me in so many ways, the most important being a real improvement in
my relationship with my wife, friends and family.
I've become a calmer, happier, more focused version of myself and I'm enjoying both my personal and work life more because of it" - Cameron
Deciding to book hypnotherapy was one of the best decisions I have made, although I was sceptical at first it has made me stronger and helped me reassess where I am in my life now.
I feel calmer and in control of my future rather than uncertainty. Chalene is a calming influence, great listener and was completely non judgemental when we covered some difficult periods in my younger life.
I am looking forward to the future again. - Anon
At the beginning of the year, my life took a dramatic change from what had been so happy. I tried to cope with it all, but couldn't and just didn't know what to do or how to resolve it. I decided to book some sessions with Chameleon Coaching and Therapy and thank goodness I did! The help that I recieved was amazing and now my life is back on track. I would recommend Chalene at Chameleon Coaching and Therapy to anyone- I can't and don't want to think where I would be if I hadn't made that appointment.
Once again THANK YOU so much. - Gillian

"Chalene made me feel very relaxed and was very easy to talk to. After a few sessions of hypnotherapy I very quickly began to feel a lot better and a lot different. Chalene helped me with tools and ways of managing or thinking about things differently.
I would highly recommend hypnotherapy and more so Chalene to anyone suffering with anxiety or similar feelings." - Abbey
"The therapy process has been transformative for me, guided by Chalene's expert approach, warmth and patience". - JW
