Counselling Style 

My approach to counseling is to provide an emotionally safe place for you to speak openly about your concerns and struggles. I offer a Solutions Focused, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) - Client Centered approach that allows you to start where you are comfortable and move at your own pace.  I will enclourage you to explore your personal issues and we will develop a treatment plan that works for you.  

Together we will focus on developing positive solutions, that will help you to find peace and restore a feeling of balance and well-being to your life.

My clients have different ways of learning and processing their experiences so I take into consideration your particular learning style and adapt the counselling sessions to provide the best opportunity for you to achieve your desired goals. For this reason I use a combination of counselling methods.
