About me

Hello, welcome to my profile.  If you are currently experiencing a difficult feeling or situation, you have already made a good start by seeking a counsellor to help you at this time. If you decide to start therapy with me, I will listen without judging and will endeavour to help you.  I am committed to offering you the opportunity to explore and share your thoughts and feelings together with any difficulties you are facing in a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space. There will be a focus to the therapy.

The type of counselling I offer is integrative, drawing from a range of counselling approaches to find the best support for you at this time.  Examining the past including childhood has proven helpful for many clients and this is something that you might wish to explore.  Addressing any unhelpful or outdated thinking patterns (for example, negative thinking about a situation or yourself) might lead us to incorporate cognitive behavioural therapy where we together address how certain thinking and actions could be maintaining the difficulty and then consider incorporating more helpful alternatives. At all times, you will be the one to decide on any changes to make in your life as fits what you desire for your future. My approach is based on the belief that individuals are capable of self-determination. It is also based on understanding the relationship between oneself, others, the world around us and how these all interact.

An important aim of counselling is to lead you to a more fulfilling life. People I have worked with have reported relief from depression and anxiety (including generalised anxiety disorder, bi-polar disorder, panic attacks and phobias), compulsive behaviour, sleeping problems and come to terms with loss, bereavement or loneliness.  I have helped others with strong feelings of anger or confusion, low self-esteem, identity crisis, issues in troubling relationships and post-traumatic stress.

You may find that through counselling you are more empowered, you develop insight into your life and gain greater self-awareness so that you can start to envisage positive yet realistic change for your future.
