If you're suffering from anxiety, it can feel like your stomach is always churning, your mind is constantly racing and you feel like you’re out of control. Your anxiety can show up in different areas of your life and at different times. Maybe it’s in your everyday life, or it shows up in your relationships, with money, or your work. It makes it hard for you to concentrate, to be present with people you care about and to enjoy the things you like to do. At times you feel overwhelmed and stuck like there is no way out of this feeling and you wish you could just go to sleep and wake up and the anxiety be gone.

In 1997 at RCH I set up groups for socially isolated teens with ASD, anxiety, shyness, bullying, sensory deficits, cognitive & receptive language deficits & so on. Teens say that they enjoy the "judgement free space", the belonging. Their confidence grows in the groups. Parents say that they are keen and organised to come to the groups, it is the highlight of their week. They relax. I delved into the needs of socially isolated teens through my Psychodrama thesis called "Friends Are The Best Medicine". I also run Tuning Into Kids/Teens groups for parents & Family Therapy. Telehealth is available for kids/teens/parent/families!

I work with couples and individuals who want to actively engage in change to help them gain insight into themselves and the world, using their emotional reactions, thoughts and feeling. I believe people attain the greatest well-being through self- and other- acceptance. Understanding repetitive unwanted interactional patterns can help people step out of the fray and gain meta-perspective which helps them to make different choices moving forward. I don't work with couples when there are serious issues of power and control, interpersonal violence (physical or emotional). I do not write Court reports or serve as an expert witness.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
