Executive Counselling and Coaching
New Routes provides solution focused counselling in Lancashire

Supporting Leaders to Thrive

New Routes exists to provide the very best in well-being support for executives, directors, and leaders at every level. From coaching to counselling, debriefing to group facilitation, New Routes has experienced staff ready to meet the needs of public, private, and third-sector clients.

Leaders at every level of their organisations carry the success of their teams on their shoulders. Positions of power come with great rewards but often lead us to create walls around ourselves – a facade that must always appear professional, with no room for self-care for fear of showing weakness of any kind.

But the truth is that self-care can be make or break for those in leadership positions. Prevention and early intervention for issues such as stress, health and sleep issues, anxiety and depression among others can be the difference between career success and a host of additional issues that can over ow into our professional and personal lives, affecting relationships, health, and ultimate our lives as a whole.

The challenges of being a leader in any organisation are clear, what is perhaps less clear is the self-stigmatisation of those leaders regarding their own wellbeing and their mental health. The challenges of being a leader and being able to say "I need support" without compromising their position represents a significan challenge for many executives.

Research suggests some 15% of executives are not just stressed but in fact ‘in distress’ from overwhelming demand. Research also suggests this stems from isolation, pressures of the post, transference and overwhelmingly for both executives and senior leaders, the findings presented suggest self-stigmatisation as the biggest cause – the view that it is seen as ‘weak’ to ask for help.

The services offered can be tailored to meet the needs of the organisation and individual and are provided by fully qualified, experienced counsellor and coach, with extensive experience both as a senior leader in the public and third sector and supporting leaders and resources in organisations.

New Routes is an official current provider of these services across both the public and third sector.
