About

Having spent a lifetime working or volunteering in the community sector, I have come to appreciate that every person walks a unique journey full of the trials and joys of life. At times there are unexpected traumas, confusing twists and turns and sometimes a complete stall, with no visible way forward. However everyone has inner strengths that can help them remain resilient, but sometimes those strengths are not realised. It is one of my passions to help people unlock those inner strengths, giving empowerment to find solutions that previously were unseen.
My counselling is person centred, with an integrative approach that is compassion based. I like to utilise a variety of modalities such as Narrative, Solution Focussed and Cognitive Behaviour Therapies, as well as Positive Psychology tools to better understand your values and life goals. Specialities include anxiety, panic attacks, life transitions & loss.
Problems and issues can at times make you feel isolated. You feel no one understands you, or is even interested. Can I encourage you to reach out and call me. It is good for the soul to offload, and often in the process a new perspective is found.
