Experience and ability to connect to persons of all age groups, all cultures and all backgrounds. Persons with problems of life do not always want to hear there is something "wrong" with them. Most of the time they can be facilitated to solve their own problems and grow towards more independence and maturity on a personal level. I see it as my task to facilitate change.

I am mostly a systems theorist. I believe if we can heal the system that impact you (past, present, family, health,spirituality, trauma, relationships) you will be able to move at your own healthy pace toward strength and victory. I work attachment-based as I believe our family or origin is the classroom where we were taught how to do life and relationships. Unlock that and you have the key to why you battle where you are now.

You do not have to wait until you are in crisis before you reach out to a counsellor. One thing in life that is certain is change and facing challenges. Just navigating normal life transitions can be stressful and overwhelming. We are made to be in relationship with one another and when you are going through a difficulty there can be such power and healing in being able to express to someone in confidence what you are experiencing on a physical, emotional, mental and social level. We all need that space where we feel safe, we are able to share in confidence and there is no judgment.

Everyone has ups and downs in their journey of life, but sometimes you need additional support to navigate particular low points. Your thinking may be cyclical, so addressing the problem from multiple angles, with various lenses, can be the breakthrough that is needed. I work with a Humanistic and Positive Psychology framework that sees you as whole and focuses on your strengths. You are not your trauma, your grief, or your diagnosis. I want to help you to improve your quality of life and to fulfill your potential. I also use Resilience coaching to look at your mental, physical and emotional needs, to identify growth areas.

Your mindset affects every area of your life, work, family and relationships. Together we can find the resources within yourself to move forward. I don't believe that you are your behaviour and your behaviours are a result of your conditioning, belief system and values. If you are feeling stuck, it's only because you are committed to a certain set of behaviours and they don't serve your outcomes anymore. Let go of everything that doesn't serve you!
