Career Coaching – Ainsley Salsbury

Ainsley Salsbury       Quals: BA (Psych), PG Dip App Psych, B Bus (HRM)

Career Coaching: Work, in all of its many forms, has the potential to enrich our lives in significant and lasting ways.  Finding the right path for us, balancing work with other life priorities, making career changes and resolving any career relevant conflicts / obstacles / dilemmas, dealing with career disappointment or unwanted changes however can present us with significant challenge.

Given that we spend a significant proportion of our lives in our workplaces and engaged in work related activity –  making financially and psychologically wise career decisions is a complex though vitally important undertaking.   In terms of the interplay between  wellness and work – our brains are shaped (and re-shaped continuously) by our environment – this is now much better understood than it ever has been thanks to great leaps in neuroscience over the past decade and a half.

Counselling Approach: As well as her credentials as a psychologist, Ainsley has tertiary qualifications and career experience in Human Resources, and has also worked as a People Management Consultant providing advice to Senior Level across a wide range of industries.   As a result, she has an intimate and hands-on knowledge of workplace and organisational dynamics and how these can interplay with our overall sense of  psychological wellness, satisfaction, enrichment and motivation.

Executive Coaching – Helen D’Silva

Helen D’Silva       Quals: MA of Psychology (Sport & Exercise), Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, Certificate IV in Small Business Management                                

Executive Coaching: It can be lonely at the top and the pressures and the pressures and responsibilities which come with senior ranking positions can have a gross impact on our mental well-being.

We can have business coaches and analysts who assist business improvement and growth strategies. However, our unique set of skills, abilities (or lack thereof for the role we’re in), beliefs, values and attitudes can stop us from forging ahead.

Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt says the best advice he ever received was to get a coach. From gaining greater awareness of yourself, how you’re perceived and where you can improve, you can strengthen your ability to achieve faster progress with better focus and greater precision.

From working with an executive coach you can benefit from the following:

  • Gain support and confidence to “lean in”and make bolder moves
  • Develop clarity on your values; your actions will be integral to you and will be perceived and received with stronger conviction
  • Emotional support, empathy and encouragement – feels less lonely and hear the cold truth that others won’t tell you, in a safe space
  • Gain 360 degree feedback, strategic planning for self-improvement
  • Support for improving specific skills – communication, delegation, conflict management, team building, persuasion etc.

Counselling Approach: For over 10 years, Helen has worked with business owners and senior leaders, consulting and coaching with them on human resources strategies, tools and processes. Having supported both the employer and employee in varying situations, Helen understands the types of conflicts and challenges that can arise at these levels. With first-hand experience of such challenges, Helen can deeply empathise with the struggles clients face. Helen engages a variety of techniques and strategies from Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Positive Psychology and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to support her clients.
