I enjoy working hand in hand with my clients to help them overcome any difficulties that they are facing. I offer the support that they may need to explore any difficulties and move forward. Exploring these difficulties can be uncomfortable and intense but I am there to offer support and guidance.
Developing an understanding and trust is crucial to the success of counselling. Through a collaborative effort, we unwrap the issue and attempt to find the solutions in it. This is never an easy process but it is a necessary one. I am not the professional in my client's lives, they are. Through this intense process, we are able to examine disorder and chaos and attempt to identify ways in which to implement order.
I work predominantly with children, adolescents and families and I prefer to work holistically as therapy occurs once a week but the person needs to continue living his or her life outside the therapy room also.
