Counselling and Therapy


As an integrative therapist, I believe your experience is unique, and can be explored from different perspectives. Being relational, means tuning into my intuition and emotions present in our work together, and focusing on what happens between us, to provide a sense of how you engage with the world.

The "mind" involves our cognition, body, emotion and spirit. How we make meaning out of our experience will shape our lives. In our work together, I'm focused on how you make sense of the world, and have a curious, compassionate and non judgemental approach.

My practice is informed by a range of relational psychotherapeutic approaches, including psychodynamic, existential, humanistic and body psychotherapy. I work in a cohesive and relational way to help you address change and support you on a path towards well-being.

I will support you to overcome whatever is troubling you. I believe people have it within them, to find their potential and that positive change happens in the presence of a quality, and trusted therapeutic relationship.

How long does therapy take?

This depends on the individual circumstances. I offer both short term (more goal oriented) and long term open ended therapy. We would discuss an approach based on my assessment of what I believe would be most suitable and how you would also like to work. We could also agree to work together for an initial “trial period” to see how therapy is working for you.

How does therapy help?

Contemporary research emphasises the strength of the therapist – client bond as being crucial to positive client outcomes. I have experienced both in my professional capacity and being a client in therapy myself, significant change through this process.

Therapy requires patience and commitment on both the client and therapist side, and as painful feelings are brought to the surface, it’s common that things feel worse before they start to feel better. It's possible the therapist and client cannot rise to the challenge and that therapy doesn’t work out. Ideally, the therapeutic environment is secure enough for the client to voice when therapy isn't working for them, which can be mutually explored in order to see what can be done to restore trust in the process.
