It's tough opening up to someone but we, via the therapeutical alliance, can create a safe space of trust where there is confidentiality, no judgment and that the client feels comfortable sharing. Here are some testimonials from previous clients for you to ponder: Social anxiety- My gran nearly fainted when she saw me ask someone who works in a shop a question, something I've never done in my life before. Grief- My therapist has helped me as I was feeling lonely and it cheered me and made me realise that I do have a future by myself with friends and family to support me. Low self esteem- I've realised I'm stronger than I thought.

I am a relational therapist and take a holistic approach to my clients. Broadly speaking this means I treat the person and not their problem or disorder. Rather than seeing mental health difficulties like depression or anxiety as something wrong with you that need to be fixed, I view them as valid and understandable responses to challenging life experiences. My work as a therapist is informed by both my academic training as well as my own personal struggles in striving for good mental health. I try to combine my theoretical knowledge of what can help with my own personal understanding of how challenging our lives and strugges can be

I am a qualified counsellor and Accredited member of the BACP. I use a pluralistic approach to my therapy. This involves working collaboratively with my clients, their individuality thus incorporating shared decision making.  I can work with a wide range of concerns and assist you with issues you may be facing such as anxiety, depression, trauma, addictions, stress, anger, sexual abuse and many others. An example of this approach is discussing with you what you would like to achieve from therapy then working together to achieve the most effective way to get there.

Having gone through some of my own personal struggles, I know how important it is to have someone listen. To be able to vocalise your thoughts without any fear of judgment. Sometimes it can feel like the end of the road with no-where else to turn. It can feel like there is no hope left. Negative thoughts seem to go round and round in your head. This is the time to reach out and let someone help you. I aim to provide a safe and confidential space to work through issues and will use other evidenced based therapeutic approaches to suit individual needs, such as compassion focused therapy and mindfulness. ​

The most important aspect of success in counselling is the relationship between us. I tailor the approach to your needs in collaboration with you so that ultimately you can become your own therapist, by applying new skills and techniques to determine positive patterns of thinking and behaving. I understand that coming for therapy can be a bit scary or daunting, even if you have been before, meeting someone new can be challenging especially if you’re feeling vulnerable or out of sorts. Choosing to come for therapy is about caring for and prioritising your own needs, and allowing yourself time and space to think things through.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Johnstone?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Johnstone specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
