My ideal client is one who is looking to make sense of their experiences and how they function or operate within their world; one who is open to learning about themselves, to make changes and to improve skills to better relationships with themselves and those around them. Their issues may be varied and include anxiety, attachment issues, bullying, communication, divorce, emotional regulation, family functioning, fractured relationships, grief, infidelity and stress, among other issues that may present. Assisting clients to set out a treatment plan and work together to achieve their goals are important aspects of the journey.

Once you know exactly ‘what’ to do you will quickly regain control, find your feet, and move forward. I have over 30 years experience helping people and have been a consultant in charge of a major hospital Psychology Clinic. I have also worked in an Anxiety Disorder Clinic, and Family Therapy Clinic. This level of expertise allows for accurate diagnosis and personalised treatment. I employ practical, tested methods. When you are under stress it is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that you are powerless, and that this is just the way things are. You will start to believe, “I’m not as capable as I once was"
Each and every person is unique, so it’s important to me that I offer a personalised approach to therapy that is considerate of your individual needs. I enter into every session with the utmost care and respect, free of judgment or prejudice. My office is a place of safety, security and understanding.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Canadian then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety.
