I work well with clients who experience difficulties relating to anxiety, depression, and challenges in relationships. These clients would be open to self-exploration and digging deep into the biological, social, and psychological factors that are influencing them and contributing to their symptoms, with the aim of better understanding what is going on for them. Their goals may include developing coping strategies, improving important relationships, and addressing the underlying issues behind their salient challenges. The clients would be willing to challenge their own thinking and behavioural patterns to elicit positive change.

I feel passionate about helping people make meaningful, sustainable, and healthy changes in their lives. I aim to work respectfully and collaboratively with people so that clients build their own independence and develop ways to manage life stressors more effectively, in addition to their own thoughts, feelings and behaviours. A comfortable, empathetic and supportive therapeutic relationship is also very important in my approach, and research shows that this is essential in best outcomes for clients. I generally work on a wide range of mental health and life issues and the approaches I work with are all evidence-based interventions.

Many people sometimes struggle to understand their emotions and behaviour - maybe they get angry too easily, or become upset for no apparent reason. Other people are often well aware of why they need some mental health support, due to historical and / or current problems. I always ask clients: "What do you want to be different in your life when our work is done?" The client's answer may be specific or vague, surprising or long-known to them. Either way, I can help you answer those and many other questions - but only if you truly want to overcome the mental health challenges that stop you from behaving like the person you want to be.

Feeling you need support outside of your family and friends? Not sure about changing some aspect of your life? I work with adults and older teenagers looking for growth or change in their current lives. If a trauma, or event has impacted you, we may understand why it's happened, but sometimes "why" isn't enough. Combining psychotherapy with somatic psychology, we can create the change and healing you are seeking.

By discovering aspects of the mind that are often outside of our awareness and exploring influential events and relationships of childhood, adolescence and adulthood, we can develop a deeper understanding of why and how we feel and relate as we do, as adults. This way of working has assisted people who deal with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, grief and loss, sexuality and gender questioning, sexual difficulties and issues with intimacy, cross-cultural and identity issues, chronic pain, family difficulties and substance dependence.

I am passionate about supporting teenagers and adults, especially those who deal with the impacts of trauma, who don’t feel good in the boxes society tries to fit us into, who are trying to make the world a better place, or are simply struggling to cope with events beyond our control. The world can be a difficult place to live in, and we all need help sometimes. And sometimes we need a cat video. I named Ginger Cat Counselling after my own lovable eccentric, because it reminds me of the comfort and support I don't always realise I have. You are the expert in your life, and its my job to help you figure out how to support yourself.
