About me

What is counselling?

Very simply, it’s an opportunity to slow down and process whatever is troubling you with a trained professional.

At a very basic level, I see therapy as moving internally from fear to love.

Sounds vague I know, but many of our pains (e.g. anger, anxiety, low mood) come from a lack of connection and trust in ourselves and others.

Maybe we’ve been hurt in the past. Maybe we’ve suffered a loss. Maybe we don’t believe in ourselves.

Whatever the particular concern, taking the time to explore it is the beginning of healing.

As a humanistic therapist my job is to facilitate a process of change and transformation, not to judge or analyze.

There are no couches, no free associations, no Rorschach ink blots.

It’s simply being in the moment with whatever comes up during the conversation––a kind of mindful curiosity.

This process may be a little uncomfortable at times, but ultimately it can be quite rewarding (and even enjoyable).

It doesn’t always have to be about what’s not working either.

I encourage clients to celebrate their strengths, and what is going well for them.

Ultimately you are in the driver’s seat, and therapy is about empowering you to be the best version of yourself possible.

Benefits of Counselling

Here are some of the ways counselling can help:

  • Gain insight and awareness

  • Learn new coping strategies

  • Resolve outdated patterns

  • Explore new ways of being

  • Improve your relationships

This is different for everyone, and will depend on your specific needs.


Here's what others are saying:

"Clearly dedicated to his path of purposeful engagement." --Ross (Writer)

"Demonstrates self-awareness through his values, introspection and behaviour." --Audrey (Consultant)

"Has a warm, non-judgmental personality." --Michelle (Educator)

"Able to pick up on the complexities of what lies underneath the problems presented." --Allan (Psychotherapist)

"I appreciated the fact that it was at my own pace." --Caroline (HR Specialist)

"Extremely helpful in guiding me and giving me a sense of peace” --Ayesha (Business Analyst)

First Steps

I offer an initial consultation to see about working together.

This is a chance to see if therapy is right for you, and to see if we would be a good fit.

You will need to find someone you feel comfortable enough with to share what's on your mind (go with your gut).

If we decide to work together, we will set up a weekly appointment either short term (6-12 sessions), medium term (12-24 sessions), or long term (24+ sessions).

This is regularly reviewed together to make sure counselling continues to be helpful and appropriate.
