How could I support you?
AS A COACH
Imagine taking a trip into the unknown. The first leg of your journey might involve a coach that gets you from A to B. I see myself acting as that coach, and facilitating as you get started. Along the way you might need a thinking partner who helps you to meet your challenges and also challenges you to think in different ways. I see myself supporting you as you decide on your next step, face the obstacles in your way, and overcome them. During your journey you may also encounter emotional issues. As a trained psychologist, I am uniquely placed to help you to understand these and also to realize dreams in a way you never imagined was possible.
AS A DYSLEXIA EXPERT
I have over 30 years' experience working with children, students, adults, parents and teachers, helping them to understand dyslexia and related difficulties, and providing tools for overcoming these disabilities.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT IF YOU CONTACT ME AS A COACH?
You do not need to know exactly what you want to achieve, and you do not need to have a specific goal, but you do need to feel that something in your life needs to change: it could be in your work life, or in your family life, or in your personal life. We’ll use different psychological tools like brainstorming, imagery and visualisation and we build on your past successes to provide insight into who you are and what your potential is. Together we’ll develop an action plan to which you will be accountable and I’ll be there to support, encourage, and monitor progress.
Some of the areas that I have worked with clients in the past are:
• Transitions and transformation
• Discovering the authentic You
• Improving Important Relationships
• Work-Life Balance
• Body language
• Non Verbal Communication
• Listening Skills
• Conflict Resolution
• Emotional Intelligence, Transforming Negative Emotions and Setting Positive Goals
• Understanding Dyslexia
• Mental Aerobics
• Understanding and Improving Memory
• Building Self Esteem
• Raising Children with Values: Caring, Responsible, and Likeable
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT IF YOU CONTACT ME AS A DYSLEXIA EXPERT?
Firstly I offer a free 15-minute online consultation.
If the dyslexic person is a child or student, the second appointment, of about 45 minutes will cover background information.
The third appointment is the actual assessment and this is usually face-to-face and takes 45 minutes.
Within a couple of weeks of the assessment you will receive a written report explaining the difficulties and suggesting intervention.
The price of the above is in the region of £750
WHO AM I?
I am a Chartered Psychologist with a PhD from the University of London and an Educaitonal Psychologist. I work as an Executive and Life Skills Coach and have been a facilitator for YPO-WPO (Young Presidents-World Presidents Organisation) since 2000. I am also an Educational Psychologist with a special interest in reading, spelling, memory, dyslexia and dysgraphia, and was a Professor of Psychology at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg. I offer my clients a transformational approach that enhances both personal powers and interpersonal skills, opens new vistas, increases emotional awareness, and sharpens "intellectual management". I have extensive knowledge and understanding of human behaviour. My style of delivery is lively and informative. I’m diplomatic, sensitive, fun to be with, and have a gentle sense of humour. I’m always game for a challenge, assured at teaching, and open to learning.
WHAT HAVE OTHER CLIENTS SAID ABOUT ME?
Estelle gets things done! Her maturity, great experience, norms and values, deep understanding of the individual and the group, and above all top professionalism creates an action-loaded and inviting environment where participants feel comfortable to open up and take their lives and that of their dear ones to the next personal and professional level where it deserves to be. Estelle’s combination of concise exercises and her compact choice of words to explain complex phenomena very clearly are unique and a privilege to experience. She truly is an agent for change in the very best way. Working with Estelle Doctor is like taking your Mind, Body and Soul to the best cleaners: you will be ready (again) to make life the party it is meant to be.
