As a counsellor and psychotherapist I aim to provide a safe, reliable relationship and place where the person seeking support and guidance can begin the process of counselling. As each of us is unique and exceptional in our own right the journey will be different for everyone. My goal is to meet each client where they are at and for who they are when they arrive to therapy. The core foundations of my counselling approach are in my being real and true as a human being and therapist; in accepting each person as they are throughout the counselling process irrespective of what is revealed and shared along the way; and in bringing a warm compassion and caring to our time together.
As the work progresses I will endeavour to facilitate the development of inner self responsibility for the choices, directions and goals people decide to make in their lives. Working in the “here and now”, a phrase much heard these days, emanated primarily from Gestalt Therapy, one of the core foundation therapy schools of my training and a practice I incorporate in my practice.
To aid with stress reduction, anxiety and the overall counselling and psychotherapy work I integrate mindfulness based exercises into my work.
I qualified with The Flatstone Institute of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy and am accredited with IAHIP.
I completed further training in both Couples and Adolescent Counselling and engage in ongoing Continuous Professional Development.
