If you’ve found yourself here, I understand that there’s a struggle in your life that’s worrying you. Perhaps it's something you've been struggling with for a long-time such as a childhood trauma, long-standing symptoms of anxiety or depression, or issues in your relationships. Or, maybe it's something new and challenging, such as the loss of a loved one, a diagnosis of an illness, school/work stress, or, in this time of lockdown, any overwhelming feelings such as anxiety , guilt, anger, depression, or exhaustion.

Hence, my focus is on the integration of body, mind and soul and how these influence the process of transformation.

I work individually with adults who might be feeling overwhelmed or struggling to cope with difficulties that may be related to depression, anxiety , trauma and life changes. For the treatment of depression and anxiety disorders, I primarily make use of a skills based approach called Metacognitive Therapy (MCT). I am a certified EMDR practitioner, a helpful approach for the processing of trauma. I also draw from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and psychodynamic approaches, depending on the specific needs of the client.

I am a Registered Counsellor, focusing on trauma, childhood sexual abuse, confidence, self-worth, stress, phobias/ fears , grief as well as sports performance.
Counselling provides a safe space to explore the problems that trouble all of us on this journey through life. We address behaviours, emotions and thoughts that are no longer serving us or which prevent us to optimally perform in different areas of our lives. This unfolding and unraveling may ultimately lead to improved relationships, new coping mechanisms, increased sense of self awareness, and personal development. My approach is warm and collaborative and I value the therapeutic relationship as a tool for meaningful change.

I consult clients who struggle with a variety of issues such as depression, anxiety , eating disorders, ADHD, bereavement, trauma, burn-out, work stress, coping, self-esteem and relationship problems.
All of us at some point might need support to deal with the many challenges of life, whether it be a personal crisis, a loss, an addiction, a feeling of stuckness or a change in one's ability to cope. I offer compassionate and non-judgemental psychotherapy for adolescents and adults. It is not always easy to take the first step to start therapy and to be vulnerable, but allowing yourself to open up is often the start of the journey towards acceptance or change.

Are you experiencing anxiety or panic attacks, ranging from general anxiety which you can't pinpoint, to full on attacks that make you feel as though you are dying? Do you have relationship issues with a family member or loved one, so you feel unappreciated or disrespected? Are you feeling overwhelmed and confused, or perhaps you question decisions you made? Does an incident in your past prevent you from moving forward? Do you feel intimidated by life in general, or by the people around you? Are you experiencing burnout and you don't know where to turn? I can help you!

I enjoy working with people who want to explore themselves deeply, to ask questions about their internal world and make sense of how they relate to others, themselves and the outer world. You may well present with depression or anxiety or be struggling in a relationship. You want to engage therapeutically and gain insight into your relational dynamics and be able to make links between past early relationships with parents or family of origin and how these experiences have predisposed you to relating to others and the world in a unique way. You seek greater freedom from emotional conditioning and to know the fullness and joy of life.

My work focusses on clients who are struggling with the effects of childhood abuse and trauma as well as the emotional effects related to narcissistic abuse, past or present. I provide a space for clients to feel safe and to allow them to loosen their defences they needed to protect themselves and to understand their inner world and change old repetitive and obstructive patterns of being and relating. My focus is in working with young and older adults. I also include expressive therapy approaches, where needed, as a means to access emotions and experiences that are difficult to verbalise.

I have a wide range of interest areas (ADHD, anxiety and mood disorders, personal growth, maladaptive thinking patterns ect) and focus primarily on young adults and adolescents.
When we aren't feeling like the best version of ourselves, it's tough to engage in our lives in the way we would like to; our daily stress adds up and pulls us away from the things that are important to us. Whether little things in your life are piling up and becoming overwhelming or you are in the midst of a major life transition, accessing support is an important first step to living a value-driven life. Having a dedicated time in which to process our thoughts with an unbiased listener can build the insight we need to thrive.

Anxiety Counsellors

What are the most common treatments for anxiety?

Talk therapy, particularly cognitive behavioural therapy, is the most common treatment for anxiety. Studies have shown it is equally effective as medication. Other popular forms of therapy are popular, depending on a patient’s experience. Exposure therapy, for instance, can be useful for people dealing with fears and phobias, or who have experienced traumatic events. Dialectical Behavioural Therapy may be useful for patients who need help with emotion regulation. Anxiolytic medications, like benzodiazepines, can also help with calming a person enough to focus on the skills they’ve learned, and physical exercise has been shown to help symptoms of anxiety across the board.

How long does therapy for anxiety take to work?

The amount of time needed to alleviate symptoms depends on the severity of a person’s condition. Some therapies may take 5-20 weekly sessions to show results. Anti-depressant medications typically take two to four weeks before a benefit is felt. Anti-anxiety medications are felt typically within 20-30 minutes. Medications are best used to offer a patient a better headspace in which to work on techniques learned in therapy. Exercise, improved sleep habits, and meditation are effective, but takes weeks or months to show results.

When should I seek treatment for anxiety?

Everyone feels anxious at times, but when anxiety causes disruption to your daily life, it may be time to seek help. Such disruption can be mental, physical, or both: having fear dominate your thoughts, avoiding situations or objects that bring on feelings of anxiety, or experiencing shortness of breath, sweating, dizziness, or panic attacks. When these symptoms are recurrent and distressing, it may be time to talk to someone.

How effective is treatment for anxiety?

Treatment for anxiety has been shown to be moderately to highly effective, according to a large body of psychology studies and analyses. For some people, treatment using CBT or exposure therapy alone is effective. Others respond best to a combination of medication and therapy.
