East Riding Of Yorkshire
Feeling out of control and overwhelmed? Nobody you talk to seems to understand? Wonder what's going on with yourself? I see this every day, and people all ask the same question: "What is wrong with me?" The answer is nothing is "wrong" and you are not "wrong". Sometimes the way you have coped before may not be useful any longer and you find yourself washed into either a sea of chaos or a desert where you feel stuck. I see therapy as a working relationship between two people, where we seek to achieve stability, flexibility and optimal functioning in your daily living. My office is safe, confidential and comfortable and there are no waiting lists. My experience includes working with anxiety attacks, intrusive thoughts, panic, bereavement, illness, anger, relationship and behaviour issues, assertiveness and conflict handling skills. My clients say that I have excellent listening skills, am warm and friendly, and they appreciate the new skills which are developed in therapy. I work with a range of ages, and for those who are unemployed or are on benefits I apply the fair donation policy used in charities.
My career and qualifications are all about behaviour, psychology and the caring profession. I have taught, tested and counselled and am passionate about giving individuals the opportunity to be heard, respected and find a way to move forward.
As an individual, I was born in South Africa and have been living in the UK for nearly 8 years. I am married with three mostly grown up children. We enjoy the British outdoors and walking and discovering new places renews my mind and soul. I have a small dog who believes she is a therapy dog and you may meet her.
