I work with adults one-to-one. This allows us to develop the strong therapeutic relationship and trust needed to go deep and work on creating change from the inside-out. Connecting to your strengths and values, challenging the beliefs and behaviours that no longer serve you, and living with integrity will transform your life and your relationships with others. It takes courage and I'm there to support you along the way.
Do you have the sense that your current problems have a lot to do with what happened in the past? Or maybe a recent event, like an accident, assault or injury, has left you with persistent feelings of fear or tension? I have advanced training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, a powerful therapy that gets to the root of the problem, helps you recover from the past and move forward in the present.
You can count on me to care. My approach is supportive, practical and focused on your needs and goals. I have 14 years' experience as a clinical counsellor and supervisor and a diverse background working in government, business and education.
I have extensive training and experience helping people to recover from post-traumatic stress disorder related to interpersonal, occupational and accidental trauma. I also specialize in working with anxiety, depression and the impacts of shame.
My counselling approach is based on what works, according to scientific research, experience and feedback from clients. I have a special interest in neuroscience and the use of therapy to support the brain's tremendous healing potential.
There are many types of counselling therapy. I use an integrative approach that draws from the following:
- EMDR Therapy
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
- Solution-Focused Therapy
- Mindfulness-Based Therapies
- Humanistic Therapy
- Attachment Theory
- Ego-State Therapy
- Internal Family Systems
What are your issues and concerns?
What are your goals? What changes would you like to see in your life?
