About

I have 10 years experience and have worked in both the private and not for profit sector. I take the time to ensure every client feels comfortable about engaging in counselling and has a clear understanding of what they can expect from the sessions, and from myself as their therapist. I ensure that we work to not only reduce symptoms but also look at underlying causes that will prevent symptoms from reoccurring. I work from a client-centred approach and therefore it is important the client feels in control of the sessions and are working at their own pace.
I provide therapy for children from 3 years of age, adolescents, adults and couples to address a range of issues including: Depression, Anxiety, Stress, Behavioural difficulties, School issues (including bullying), Trauma, Attachment and Bereavement.
While talk is often the primary approach with adolescents and adults, I also have a play space for pre-school and school aged children (I see children from 3 years of age). In addition to direct client work, I offer parent training and consultation. I specialise in family relationships which includes individual, couples and family therapy.
