About me

I practise using a Person Centred Approach and a blend of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Positive Psychology, and Mindfulness. My Masters degree training and work experience enables me to practise as an integrative counsellor, utilising a range of therapeutic approaches depending on your needs and goals.

Counselling provides a safe, accepting, and non-judgemental space in which to heal and grow

How counselling works.

We all experience difficult emotions from time to time, such as grief when someone we love dies, or disappointment when someone we like doesn’t reciprocate our feelings. Anxiety too, is part of being human, we might feel anxious on a first date or when giving a presentation at work. We also all experience anger when something happens that we feel is wrong or unjust. Sometimes we can process these emotions easily, and have no problem moving forward, at other times we may feel like we could benefit from counselling. Through counselling you can identify therapeutic goals you would like to reach and work toward them.
