Does anxiety rule your life? Is the grief you are feeling extremely painful? Do you feel suicidal, or have you lost someone to suicide? Do you feel your life is just drifting? Do you need a safe and confidential space to talk just about you and what is going on in your life right now? Is your own self esteem and self worth at rock bottom? Would you like to understand yourself and some of your life experiences more? Are you a teenager struggling with peer pressure/bullying or self image? Are you experiencing any relationship difficulties either within a marriage, a family system or the workplace?

You find life is a struggle. However, you have a feeling it does not need to be this way. You have tried various strategies and coping mechanisms, you have given your all and no matter how hard you try, you find yourself stuck again and again! Your mind is anxious about the future as you wonder whether you will be able to sustain such discomfort with life. Your mind also tends to dart back into the past, wondering regretfully about things you did or failed to do. A smooth and easy relationship with the here and now alludes you. You want to try something new. It is time to try 'change' through psychotherapy.

I initially attempt to provide a sense of ease in counseling sessions because before therapy can be productive it must, firstly, feel safe. From there, goals that the client might like to achieve naturally emerge in the conversation. These goals can be anything at all: from wishing to feel less anxious, sad, irritable or troubled, to addressing relationship difficulties at home or at work, to trying to better understand a feeling of being unfulfilled, thinking or feeling differently about our pasts or, in many cases, just to have a safe place to discuss anything at all in a confidential, non-judgemental setting.

It has been my great pleasure to be both a client and therapist. My understanding of therapy has been informed by experience and academic learning on both sides of the couch and this has had a lasting effect on my approach. Having studied integrative therapy, I hold the view that therapy is best delivered by a process-led approach, which is to say that what the client brings in, is what is worked with. This avails the client to work at their own pace, with my support. Therapy can be a transformative experience and working in a non-judgement and supportive environment provides a microcosm of life to explore safely.

As a therapist, I believe in the transformative power of human connections on our overall well-being. I recognise that our relationships with others serve as the cornerstone of our physical and mental health. However, I also acknowledges that many of us struggle to find genuine ease and trust in these connections due to various life experiences, and perhaps have never been able to be fully at ease with other human beings. In my practice, I see my role as that of a facilitator, providing a safe and supportive space for clients to explore their obstacles and work towards overcoming them.

Is something on your mind? Perhaps something from your past that you've never fully dealt with? Counselling can help, allowing you the time to talk about what's going on for you in a non-judgemental and safe space. Working with a counsellor, you can find out your truth, have a better understanding of why you do and think the things you do, discover coping mechanisms and lighten your load. If that's something you would like to do with me then I would love to hear from you.

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.
