Our mental health determines the quality of our lives. How we view ourselves and the world around us determines whether we live fulfilling, meaningful lives, or whether we struggle with feelings of worthlessness, hopelessness and despair. Our emotional wellbeing has an influence on our relationships and career success; it can dictate whether we feel safe and whole, or scared and anxious.
Reaching out to connect with a psychologist can be intimidating, but it does not have to be. When you connect with my practice, we will discuss your needs and focus on you as a whole person. We will discuss your needs and goals and collaborate on creating individually tailored services to meet your unique needs.
Everyone, at some point in their lives, struggles with challenging emotions that stand in the way of fully living. Perhaps you become overwhelmed with the smallest decisions, or you find it hard to deal with the people in your life. It is not uncommon to feel lost or discouraged and to think “Why do I keep making the same mistakes? Why can’t I take control of my life and live on my own terms? Will things ever change?”.

Do you feel like you’re stuck in survival mode? Have you just come out of an unhealthy relationship or marriage? Do you want to find healing from the past but don’t know where to begin? Do you find it hard to trust others or feel like they won’t understand what you’re dealing with? What if I told you that healing is possible? Others have recovered from these difficulties and you can to. I know it can feel like you’ll never get there but you don’t have to try and figure it out on your own. With the right help, recovery is very possible.
Counselling confidential space which enables clients to explore issues, which may have been difficult to deal with alone. I view therapy as an individual process and a journey of self discovery that create an opportunity to become aware of inner conflicts and unhelpful patterns of behaviour. I recognise that there is not one approach to therapy that will suit everyon. I’ve been a fully-certified counselor since 2000, working with adolescents, adults and families, working through grief, loss, depression, anxiety, and stress.
Everyone wants to be heard, seen and understood. Sometimes the people in your life don't have the perspective you need during tough circumstances and these are the times it can be helpful to seek professional support. Perhaps the problem is between you and your partner - I will work with you on the relationship issues creating distance....maybe you have a deeply personal concern you want to finally address- anxiety, depression, low self esteem, interpersonal skills, the impact of trauma... or your seeking someone who can help you develop solution focused strategies to move forward in today's busy and complex world.

I believe that every situation, every experience – no matter how difficult, painful, or “stuck” it might be – holds within it the opportunity for healthy healing & growth. Do you find yourself caught in a pattern repeating the same cycles? Is symptom management only getting you so far? Does talk-therapy help, but feels like it's missing something? To break a cycle, we can't just work from a surface level, we need to tap into the deeper parts of ourselves. We can't change what we're not aware of, which is why I can help you build the knowledge, self-awareness & skills needed in order to heal & reprogram your subconscious patterns.
