As a therapist I aim to help clients learn how to honour and understand their resistance and difficulty with life challenges as an outdated coping mechanism which originally was formed to serve as a self-preservation and adaptive function. In facilitating a pathway for change by walking alongside my client creating a safe and supportive environment towards self-awareness and the discovery that you are the expert in your life. My practice is trauma informed with a humanistic person centred approach. I will meet you with compassion , curiosity and connection, working towards your future goals, innate healing, health and happiness.

My clients suffer from a range of complex issues including family and relationship breakdowns, feeling stuck in a rut, and difficulties coping with life, and especially stress. This may lead to poor coping mechanisms such as using alcohol and drugs to escape unhappy situations. You as the client are the expert in your life, my role is to help you make sense of it in a way that you feel supported and heard. Together we work on new ways for you to live a better life and one you deserve.

I also work with people who experience situational or ongoing suicidal thoughts. At a foundation level, I work from a humanistic, trauma-informed and relational framework.

Anita will coach you to build on your strengths and provide strategies to cope better. Utilizing Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Bowen Family Systems treatment Anita will coach you to understand the problem you are experiencing and how it is expressed. The problem or symptom is not in the individual but often a reaction to relationship sensitivities.

Sarah's task, as your therapist is to provide an environment that disrupts your current level of functioning and move you towards change and renewed progression. Clients come to counselling stuck and immobilized, unable to create something new in their lives. The repetition of stuck and unsatisfactory behaviours, thoughts and feelings is what leads most clients through my door. I utilise theoretical and practical interventions, through the observation of the client’s discrepancies, mixed messages, conflict, and incongruity in the client’s statements and behaviours within the counselling sessions.

I am a compassionate 'Person Centered' Counsellor supporting you to re- learn how to develop an optimistic sense of self, helping you to understand the roots and cause of internal conflicts. Change is not something we do. It arises out of a deeper experience with ourselves. Whether it be negative mindset, anxiety, depression, fear, relationship issues, chronic illness. It takes time to change entrenched behaviours developed in your lifespan. The therapeutic process of counselling, enables change of unwanted behaviours - using practical ways, making better life choices, one step at a time in a private and safe space.

Sometimes life can be overwhelming. Navigating challenging interpersonal relationships, feeling emotionally burnt out, anxious and unsupported can start to take a toll. Perhaps feelings of grief and loss feel too great to overcome. I understand the many pains life can present us with and the benefit that counselling can provide in navigating such difficulties. Counselling provides a space for sharing your story, exploring your own inner wisdom, insights and new perspectives with compassionate support. You may start to notice changes such as less reactivity, less irritation, improved connection with friends, loved ones and yourself.

Many of my clients describe a sense of disconnection - from their partners, from themselves, and from the world around them. This is sometimes expressed through anxiety or depression, or addiction, or a breakdown in a relationship. By working with me you can find the sense of peace and calm that we all strive for.
