About me

I have been in private practice as a counsellor and psychotherapist since 1980.

I am a psychotherapy trainer and supervisor.

My approach to counselling and psychotherapy is relational and systemic. This means that the therapeutic relationship is the most important aspect of my work and that the client is seen in the context of his/her family and community with everything that this involves.

I provide individual and couple counselling and psychotherapy for the following issues:

  • Depression.
  • Anxiety.
  • Relationship difficulties.
  • Personality disorders.
  • Developmental crises.
  • Anger management and assertiveness difficulties.
  • Communication difficulties.
  • Stress.
  • Family problems.
  • Self-development.
  • Traumatic life events.

My approach

Helping people grow and change is my passion whether by psychotherapy or coaching. I work together with my clients to achieve what is important to them since everyone is unique and different. This means that every client will be treated differently and the way in which I work will vary from person to person. Because I am an integrative psychotherapist, I will use different methods of psychotherapy which all put the relationship with the counsellor first and emphasize the importance of making a contract for how we will work together such that our communication is open and honest and in your best interests. The setting in which I work is very safe and private and designed to make everyone feel comfortable.

Steps to take to make an appointment

Please call me on my mobile to set up an appointment at a time suitable for both of us.  You may also send me a text message and I will call you back when you are available.

During our initial session, we will discuss your reason for seeking help and what you would like to get out of counselling. We also have the opportunity to see whether we can work together and whether you are happy with the way in which we will work together.

If you are happy to continue with me, we can set up a second session. I generally see clients either weekly or fortnightly for an hour. For couples, I prefer to have one and a half hour sessions fortnightly but this will depend on the issue to be dealt with.
