I’m Florence Gray, the Managing Director and Senior Counselling Consultant at Nightingale Counselling Consultancy and Nightingale Marriage Counselling. I have worked in private practice with couples, individuals, and organisations for over 20 years. In Counselling, Personal Development and Coaching
As a business owner, I know all too well the challenges that leaders face as company owners, managing directors the CEO, positions in the family business or an executive in a high-level position within the corporate world. The pressure, stress, and often, loneliness and isolation that comes from working in high powered roles.
Prior to owning my own counselling consultancy, I had a long and successful career working in Glasgow and London for large corporate organisations such as Rothmans, SmithKline Beecham, Max Factor and Proctor and Gamble. During this time, I gained invaluable experience in managing, coaching, mentoring, training, consultancy, business development, and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming).
Relationships, and the connections we make in life, have long fascinated me. This led me to take the decision to train as a couple counsellor. In 1999 I started my training with Glasgow Marriage Counselling Service, the sister company of RELATE. I can honestly say that I found my vocation in life and remain passionate about facilitating change in people’s lives. It wasn’t long before I decided that I wanted to build a counselling consultancy where I could combine my business knowledge with my passion for counselling. In 2007 I opened the doors of Nightingale Counselling Consultancy and we have grown from strength to strength ever since. I currently work with a small number of couples and corporate leaders and I also select, manage, and supervise the therapists, counsellors, couple counsellors, psychosexual counsellors and psychologists who work within Nightingale Counselling Consultancy and run our exceptional private practices.
Through ‘The Therapy Coach’ I am able to combine my skillset as a counsellor with over 20 years’ experience, and the previous 20 years in the corporate world. This is what makes this service so unique. The benefit from my experience in both these camps will be a great support for you. I have always really enjoyed working with leaders as I already know how supportive this service will be. Together we will take you to a place of personal and professional growth to nourish you as you emerge as an even stronger leader.
Self-awareness is the gift you give yourself. Take the time to invest in yourself and reap the rewards.
