Effective personal coaching and counselling for young adults in Cornwall

Our Vision

Looking forwards, everyone in Cornwall will have access to support to reduce feelings of under-confidence, shyness and social anxiety so they can feel more confident and improve their quality of life.

How we work

1. Creating opportunities for meaningful connection with others:
Learning that you’re not alone and there really is nothing wrong with you through creating a sense of belonging amongst people with shared experiences.

2. Fostering a sense of self-acceptance within you:
Recognising and appreciating your unique strengths and abilities; building the belief that no personality type is superior; we all need each other, playing to our strengths.

3. Sharing coping strategies with a safe, supportive space for you to practise:
Addressing unhelpful thoughts, feelings and behaviours and gaining tools to reduce anxiety and grow confidence with opportunities to put these into action amongst people who really understand and encourage you.

Why we work

We all know what it’s like to feel you don’t belong. To think that you’re just not good enough. And how feeling shy and socially anxious can affect your life.

Importantly, we know what helped us to begin noticing and appreciating our unique strengths for the first time. And how we started developing skills to manage feelings of anxiety and grow a sense of quiet confidence within.

And when we shared our stories, we realised we weren't alone. Did you know that 2 in 5 people consider themselves to be shy? So many other people feel this way too! We just don’t talk about it, do we?

So we’re starting those conversations. And we’re bringing people together. Because you need to know that there is nothing wrong with you; you do belong! And you can achieve things you didn’t think possible before now. You can live a happy life in a way that's true to your nature.
