This has ranged from assessment and treatment of moderate to severely challenging behaviours and specialized services for people with mental health challenges, dual diagnosis, learning challenges, acquired brain injury and post-concussion rehabilitation and counselling. In my experience it is essential to first understand individuals as unique individuals irregardless of their label or challenges and develop a trusting relationship. In this context difficulties can be discussed openly and change and growth can occur.

Have you been feeling stuck and unable to change how you feel or act? Most likely you have been effected by experiences from your past. Consciously you may understand the value of changing a behaviour, but unless your deeper mind is transformed, change is not likely. Attempting to bring about enduring change without eliminating these "ghosts from the past" is like trying to repair the structure of a building by applying a coat of paint. As a Certified Practitioner of Clinical Hypnosis with Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT,) I use this approach to get the impact of grief and trauma cleared.

My ideal client has difficulty coping, and feels emotionally overloaded; but they are also ready for a change. Your distress can create anxiety and depression that results in negative thoughts, which influence your behavior and emotions. Avoiding unpleasant emotions can cause harm and inappropriate reactive behaviors. Emotional and psychological support for issues involving depression, anxiety, grief, addiction, relationship issues, self-improvement, are some of the stressors I work with. Through counselling we can focus on your needs and set goals that will ultimately give you tools to cope with life on life's terms.
