About

Have you ever felt sad, angry, anxious or depressed and not known why? It is normal for people to go through ups and downs in their lives, and I can help you through it. Have you ever felt confused about your relationship or career and not felt comfortable discussing it with your friends or family? You are the expert in your life, and I can help guide you through these difficult times. I have ten years of counselling experience. From chronic illnesses to gender identity issues and addictions, I have worked with clients in all different stages in their lives.
I work as an online counsellor through skype, video or telephone. I use an eclectic mix of Solution-Focused Therapy: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Strengths Perspective, Motivational Interviewing and Mindfulness. I tailor my sessions and techniques to each individual client and work collaboratively to find a style that suits you.
I can help you achieve: Relief from negative thinking, anxiety and depression. Better coping mechanisms to help you overcome addictive behaviours. Balance in your day-to-day life. I aim to understand each person, help them work through their issues and enable them to find ways to achieve lasting change.
