"Personal distress is manageable. The majority of life stressors that contribute to distressing feelings fall into three categories that include relationship difficulties, internal factors (troubling or uncomfortable thoughts) and difficult life events (past and present). Depression and anxiety often occur when these factors go unresolved. I employ a brief counselling model that uses cognitive-behavioural and solution focused strategies to help my clients develop manageable goals for resolving personal distress. Every client has the capacity for change and the evidenced based strategies that I use in my practice are the most likely path to help overcome barriers to success."
