Victoria Northern DCounsPsych MNCS Accredited
Welcome to my profile. I work with children, young people and adults with various issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, anger, bereavement, loss, self defeating behaviours, self harm/suicidal ideation, relationship issues, addiction and abuse. Counselling is a process people seek when they want changes in their life. It can help us to understand and have better clarity of our thoughts, emotions and behaviours.
I am an integrative counsellor who works in a relational approach. I use a variety of therapeutic techniques and use these skills in the best way to work with clients who may be facing current or historic issues. The aim of the sessions are to help the client work through any issues, to gain insight and to have a healthier happier life.
I offer a friendly, non judgemental and confidential service where you can explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe space. I offer short, medium and long term therapy for clients that have day to day problems, emotional difficulties or historical issues. I am able to offer sessions face to face, online and via telephone. If you feel that therapy is the next step for you, please contact me to discuss further.
