Supporting people with anxiety, anger, relationship issues, frustration, avoidance and more. Are you noticing an inability to delay gratification? Whether that be difficulties with work-life balance, abusing alcohol, cigarettes, or food, not caring what happens or what anyone thinks and pushing 'dealing with it' away! All these traits come into play when stressed as negative coping strategies and making changes might mean digging down to find the source of your thoughts feelings and behaviours with a trained counsellor.

How to explain what counselling is... If you're holding a cup of coffee and somebody accidentally bumps into you, you will most likely spill a drop or two, or depending on the bump impact a few spoonfuls or more. If there had been tea or something else in your cup, the result would be the same. Your emotions and feelings are like the coffee, because sometimes when life comes along and shakes you (which will happen to us all) whatever is inside your cup will spill out. Sometimes life can be easier until you get bumped.....but then you may need somebody to talk to, this is where counselling can help.

We live in a world which throws a lot at us, and expects a lot of us. And, very often, we expect a lot of ourselves too. For many of us, it can help to talk through what we’re dealing with, to help us understand what’s going on and find a way forward. Whether you’re dealing with anger, anxiety, bereavement, depression, identity, loneliness, powerlessness, relationship difficulties, or simply want to talk things through, I offer a confidential, non-judgmental space to explore what you’re feeling, and how you can manage it. We’re all different and we all need to find our own way. I can help you do that.

There can be many reasons to seek counselling: it may be a current issue, a general feeling of mental unease, a past trauma that is still troubling you or perhaps a sense of wanting to know yourself better. Whatever is causing you unease at the moment we will explore and work through. There will be a curiosity of what may be unconsciously affecting you from your early years and the relationships you had. I am experienced in working with many different areas including bereavement, anxiety, family issues and feeling low. Perhaps you are looking to explore who you are and have a better understanding of yourself.

Through my counselling training, work and life experiences, I have realised that every person and every problem is unique. Counselling protects your autonomy and allows you to feel that you are being listened to and valued; that your issues are real and important but significantly they can be worked through and there is a way to move on. It gives you a space which is confidential, secure and supportive whatever the issue whether it's a problem with a relationship or the devastation of grief. I see my clients as valuable human beings who are temporarily lost and confused and my job is to help them find clarity and hope.

Teen Counsellors

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
