Neurological conditions affect both the patient and their family. I offer my services to both. Neurological disorders are doubtless among the most frightening illnesses that human beings face. Knowledge is sometimes the only power there is against the vagaries of these ailments. That is where counselling from a specialist psychotherapist comes in. I will make an assessment of the patient’s condition and take a medical history. I will also work with the patient’s doctor to coordinate the psychotherapy with medical treatment. I offer sessions by Phone, Skype, FaceTime and ZOOM. Call me and let’s discuss possible therapeutic options.

You have typically strived to get the most out of life. You love a challenge and until now felt pretty satisfied with life. Things are starting to look grey. You may be going through a difficult life transition or event such as divorce, grief, retirement, facing redundancy, bullying in the workplace, career change or aging? You have lost the energy and confidence you once had and may even feel depressed and anxious at times. This is effecting your interpersonal and family relationships, health, and effectiveness at work. You feel "stuck".

Psychology sessions give you the opportunity to take a step back and explore what is really important to you. We address implementing the fundamentals, of optimum sleep, nutrition, enjoyable movement and rewarding relationships to put you in the healthiest physiological and neurological state to respond adaptively to stress and challenges when they arise. Making this manageable and tangible sets you up to actualise goals and live in accordance with your valued priorities. I practice neurological condition through physiological health practices and resilience skill building. This is proactive mental health.

Many people feel 'stuck' with behaviours, feelings, habits or situations that they find hard to change. This can limit the potential to flourish and live life fully. Everyone has their own strengths and coping skills, and the right counsellor will help you to notice your pre-existing strength and resilience, and work with you to find ways to tackle your challenges and live the life you really want to live.

If you were my client, I would work with you with the attitude that you are the expert in YOU. I would work to help you to unlock the answers that you need. My job is to help you to understand the patterns of behaviours that are tripping you up in life. I come from a non judgmental position, showing empathy and warmth, enabling you to hear your own voice. Often trauma, or things that have been ones a survival reaction become a stumbling block, our own inner critical voice can keep us from trusting ourselves. My intention is to help you capture your needs and like a caterpillar learn how to fly like a butterfly.
