Do you have concerns about your child’s behaviour, self-esteem, anger, anxiety, or general state of mind? It’s not uncommon. And it can cause a lot of stress to your whole family. A little help at the right time can make a big difference. I’ll chat with you at the beginning of each session, then work individually with your child, then meet with you to discuss next steps. In the first session, I focus on helping your child feel at ease, starting to build a relationship and discovering what your child wants to get out of seeing me. Then, as we work together, I like to make the sessions light-hearted, positive and fun.

I offer a warm, accepting, and confidential space where you feel listened to. I have experience supporting people with a wide range of issues including; feeling disconnected, social and relationship challenges, navigating life changes, loss, identity struggles, and low self-worth; and people who identify as highly sensitive or neurodiverse. Psychotherapy allows us to explore why we feel and behave the way we do & can help us learn to manage our emotions. Developing a deeper understanding of ourselves and our patterns can give us new perspectives, help us make meaningful changes, and may help us accept things we can’t change.

I am a psychotherapist, a supervisor, and a sex therapist; these disciplines intertwine and inform my clinical practice every day. My approach is psychodynamic, which means that you and I will work together, which will help us to unravel the meanings and interpretations that sometimes are affecting the way we see our life and the patterns we find ourselves in. When psychotherapy meets sex therapy, this tool encompasses all and every aspect of a person’s expressions of life.

Welcome, my name is Gabriel (he/him). Whatever has brought you here today, I hope you find the support you’re looking for. Below shares more about me, my work, and the hopes I hold in this role. I love working as a counsellor because of the conversations that I get to have with people. While challenges in life are often part of these conversations, there is also space for the strengths, and wisdom that people hold in life. These have certainly added a lot to me and my work, and as a counsellor, I hope to offer support where people's experiences are heard, listened to, and are given the space to consider what could be possible.

The insight that Joanne has, has led to an understanding that when your core relational needs/values are compromised, this usually is the cause for conflict. ​

A few therapy appointments with me can help to get you through a specific situation such as a traumatic loss, injury, relationship crisis or a major decision. We can also transform deeper problems, such as mood issues, unresolved trauma, or school, work, family stress with longer term work together. I recognize you are investing in therapy and the intention is that we quickly identify the difficulties you bring and give you strategies to improve your life. Many people value the relationship we build and come back for top-ups of support when needed, either face to face or online.

I consider myself an eclectic psychologist, focused on adapting my intervention to each person. I am not very fond of follow the trend of labeling with diagnostics and jargon, but rather to first understand the unique person with whom I am working with, and then adapt the working tools accordingly. However, over the years of clinical practice, I have found that the work of emotions is central to all processes of transformation and personal growth, thus this is an intervention tool much present in my therapy room.

My approach is optimistic, creative, and fun! Whilst problems can be serious and painful, I intend that our conversations will be uplifting. ‘Problem stories’ can become overwhelming and it can be almost impossible to separate ourselves from them. This is where narrative therapy comes in. Together, we will disentangle problems stories and you will step into new, life-giving stories.
