About

I see individuals and couples for a wide number of needs. I generally see clients above the age of 18. People come to counselling because they want changes in their lives and are unsure how to make those changes. Often they are stuck in stories or habits of the past , or traumas have locked them into unhelpful ways of being. People use therapy to achieve those goals and then move on.
First I listen by asking questions, seeking clarification and making connections, that often aren't obvious to clients. They might be telling me a story of a recent argument and I'll help them notice that it seems to be a theme from their past. Then, together, we explore options or ideas and, if needed, make plans
One thing clients seem to value about me is genuineness. I'm not always soft and sympathetic. I subscribe to Michael White's aphorism that, "the person is never the problem, the problem is the problem". You are an expert in your life and my role is to work with you to reveal strengths you were aware of, courage you didn't know you had, and hidden skills.
