I offer a free 30 minute phone or video consultation, which may just help you without any more sessions. Many of us have experienced times when our lives can feel complex, isolated, stuck, or even completely overwhelmed. We may find ourselves looking for additional non-judgemental, experienced & professional support outside our friends & family in a caring, comfortable, & calm environment. It can be very helpful to have difficulties explored in confidence, to be listened to compassionately & being properly heard and understood in order to make sense of things, so that our choices can become clearer and our lives more fulfilling.

As a trauma informed therapist, I strive to provide a safe and non-judgemental space where you can share thoughts & feelings that make you feel not good enough. Working with Shame, Guilt and Anxiety we can gently explore and safely re-process some of your most challenging experiences and what they have meant for you in your life. Shame can often present as similar to feeling depressed and it can be so hard to get out of, especially alone. It thrives on isolation, silence and judgement. The antidote to shame is empathy. If we reach out and share our experiences with someone who provides understanding and empathy, shame dissipates.

As a Clinical Psychologist, I am experienced at treating anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD, relationship issues, and a range of other problems.

Male Counsellors

As a man, why might I want to see a male therapist?

There are many reasons a man might wish to work with a male therapist, including a degree of shared identity, which may help client and therapist connect to each other and allow for a more free-flowing discussion of issues that can be deeply personal. Some men may feel more comfortable talking to a male therapist about relationship concerns, the pressures they feel around the roles society and family place on men, career or job challenges, self-esteem, or anger problems. For some men who have not had a male role models in their lives, a good male therapist may be especially helpful.

How can I find out about a therapist’s experience treating men?

Individuals looking for treatment should feel comfortable directly asking a therapist about their history treating men overall and the issues that arise in therapy with men. A good therapist will be happy to discuss such matters as well as their educational background, approach to treatment, and how they think they can aid a prospective client. Prospective clients should also ask what the expectation is for treatment, and what the fee structure is, and whether and which insurance plans are accepted.

Can clients benefit from having a therapist of the same gender?

Therapy is not gender-specific, but some men as well as women feel more comfortable opening up about their experiences and history with a male therapist. An individual may feel that they have to explain less background information and be on the same page more quickly, particularly when discussing gender-specific challenges, in the case of male clients. Some women have prior negative experiences with women that predispose them to prefer working with a male in therapy. That said, a good clinician can transcend most if not all gender concerns. Ultimately, the most important factor in therapy is the connection and trust the client is able to build with the practitioner.

Would a male therapist have specific training in treating men?

Generally, no. There are no certifications for treating men specifically, but there are continuing education classes that therapists may take that focus on treating men as a group. There are many therapists who focus on men and male issues in their treatment and therefore have experience and expertise in this domain.
