I work in private practice with adults, presently from the Viney Hall Physiotherapy Clinic with clients referred through them, or with those who contact me directly.
There are so many issues that we experience that can confuse, cause anxiety, depression and hurt. As we try to live and grow and adapt to our life’s experiences it is often helpful to be able to talk to a person who is impartial, non-judgemental, and trained in the art of listening attentively, with whom we can explore our feelings, fears, hopes and challenges.
I believe that counselling and psychotherapy are a vital part of rediscovering our soul’s calling and enabling us to feel we can contribute confidently in our changing world. We each know that we are unique individuals, yet frequently it feels that we are ignored or over-ridden in order to fit in with other people’s needs.
How do we find ways to express ourselves, to release our fears, our gloom, to gain insight into our purpose and direction, to heal our wounds, to relate more authentically? My theoretical approach is integrative, through which I combine a soulful perspective with down-to-earth high-quality therapeutic skills.
It is a safe and confidential way to explore your depths and resources, and make sense of life.
Short term work, six to eight weeks, or long term, open-ended sessions available, depending on what we decide together is best suited you.
Sessions are 50 minutes, once a week.
