Hello and welcome!
My name is Sandy Loyall and my passion is pointing people towards the mental wellness and wisdom which lies at their very core. Every human being was born with an inbuilt "psychological immune system", but unfortunately, most people simply don't know it's there. What I believe, and what I've seen to be true, is that when you change your relationship to your unhelpful, repetitive, personal thinking, a whole new way of being in the world opens up.
My service is suitable for those wanting counselling, or coaching, or both. If you're struggling with life or relationships, or would like to be more creative and effective, we'll work together with this goal in mind: to be able to think more clearly, to be more resilient and to feel happier within yourself. You'll learn how to find your own answers and handle difficult circumstances more easily.
Why is my work so important to me? I believe people can "awaken" from their conditioned past, can become "creators" rather than "reactors" and stop being victims of their biology. I can "see" mental wellbeing and resilience in everyone I meet. It's one of my superpowers!
Some of the people I've helped as a counsellor include those struggling with:
– relationship difficulties
– anxiety, stress and panic attacks
– depression, suicidal ideation and feeling down
– addiction and habits.
Some of the people I've helped as a coach include those wanting to:
- develop clear thinking, vision and higher levels of performance
- use the power of intention to turn dreams into goals and results
- become a more creative problem solver
- make big decisions
- navigate life's turning points and roadblocks
- determine life's meaning, purpose and direction.
You see, what most people don't realise is that how they are feeling in each moment is not coming from people's behaviour and circumstances around them. Feelings are telling us about our own thinking about what's happening around us. That's why different people react differently to the the exact same situation, and why I can react differently to the same situation on different days, depending on the quality of my thinking! Often, we feel the feeling, then look around for something or someone to blame. But it doesn't have to be this way.
This "understanding" can change your experience dramatically.
Sometimes, life presents unexpected circumstances or events which can overwhelm and confuse us. Seeking answers and finding clarity and balance often requires a kind, focused listening ear to get you back on your feet again.
During our conversations, you'll come to see the big picture, getting right to the core of what's keeping you stuck. Your experience will shift, you'll see your problems differently and learn how to handle yourself naturally to achieve the best outcome.
Together we'll recalibrate your "inner GPS". You'll get back on track, and see that you have the power within you to bring balance, harmony and direction into your life. You will be valued and respected for the unique person that you are, not what you are not, and you'll learn that you can safely release the past and uncover possibilities for the future.
The approach I use can be a very enriching, insightful and life-changing experience!
