About

An ideal client for me is individuals, couples, and families, desiring to improve their relationships in a positive way. I have experience working with individuals, couples and families, and people from diverse cultural backgrounds, as well as serving a broad range of people with varying needs, giving him a wide breadth of experience. I am well-equipped to deliver counselling services as I draw upon my extensive knowledge gained over the course of my career regarding complex and challenging interpersonal issues, including how work can often impact on relationships.
I am an open and inclusive counsellor who adopts respectful and engaging processes that enable my clients to achieve positive outcomes. When working with clients, I utilise strength-based models of counselling, cognitive-behavioural and narrative therapy, and solution-focused approaches. I believe that everyone has hidden strengths that can be explored.
I value enhancing respectful relationships and have a firm belief that people need to feel safe, especially in their relationships. As part of my practice, I engage clients to explore strategies to actively develop respectful and enriching relationships. “I believe there is wisdom in every person that can enrich their lives”.
