I’m a firm believer that “it takes a whole village to raise a child” and equally true that a whole network of support is essential throughout adolescent and adult development too. Whether you are struggling alone or already have a few resources in place, working with a qualified counsellor strengthens you with support and resources, helping you overcome difficult periods of a life stage and/or difficult life changes. I am committed to helping you through this process.
I know that seeking help, pursuing change (in ourselves or someone else), and confronting challenges in our lives can be a nerve wracking and terrifying endeavour. I know that it takes a lot of courage to research your options and finally reach out. I urge you to push forward—reach out. Allow me to join you with warmth, compassion and non-judgement so that you feel safe and supported as you work towards the changes you desire.
Through establishing an unconditionally accepting relationship with you, I seek to see the world through your eyes. I seek to understand your personal story and unique circumstances, your strengths, your emotional attachments, how you presently feel in your body, and the solutions you hope to find. Theoretically, this translates into a collaborative process most prominently informed by Narrative Therapy, Somatic Experiencing Therapy and Mindfulness Based Approaches. Depending on your unique needs and counselling goals, I also borrow from Emotion Focused Therapy, Solution Focused (Brief) Therapy and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy. On my website, you can find a brief summary of the techniques and strategies of these theoretical approaches, as well as further information on services, fees, and options fit for you.
