Maybe you feel like you don't fit in - that others seem to have 'it' and you don't. Maybe you think you don't do the 'right' things, the things you think you should be doing. Perhaps you are dogged by sadness, anxiety, confusion or fear and don't understand why this is so. It could be that you are struggling to succeed in a relationship, a job, or being socially worthy and you are frustrated at what you see as your limitations. Maybe you had a one-off traumatic experience that you feel you will never get over, or childhood and adolescent 'failures' that you feel defined by. But you also don't want to give up and are searching ...

Since my first client in 1998 I have known that trauma & distress are visceral in nature. One can’t think oneself out of distress, but needs to gently feel the feelings – in the safety of therapy – to express them in a physical, somatic way through talking, breath, movement, acupressure, tapping, mindfulness, & felt-sense techniques. By bringing your issues, thoughts & feelings into the session we work together to untangle & understand & describe the patterns – the psychodynamics – that have sat underneath the formation of these issues. Over time, with increased self understanding & awareness comes release, relief & self-acceptance.

Living life can be fulfilling, exciting and enriching. It is not without disappointments, hurts and struggles that bring us to a place of isolation, regret, grief or anxiety. Yet greater adversity can bring greater triumphs. With self-realisation, resolve and empowerment, your story will not have to speak of defeat. It would be an honour to have the opportunity to journey with you as a licensed counselor (M Couns., ACA) with 10 years of experience working with people of all ages and backgrounds in different settings. I have a passion to see everyone lead successful and meaningful lives, building healthy relationships and families.

Child Counsellors

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
