My belief is that we were not created to walk our journey called life alone. We can feel the most alone when we face difficult or painful experiences. This is a vulnerable place to be.
Healing can come when we are given a safe space to be truly seen, heard and validated. My aim is to build a strong therapeutic relationship and meeting clients where they are in the moment. I practice mindfulness and use CBT(cognitive behaviour therapy) and DBT (dialectal behaviour therapy) techniques .
During these times of the COVID-19 Pandemic we are all needing to re-focus and change our lives to a degree. Our lives will never be the same. For those of the population finding these days difficult please reach out for support online. It is available.
Remember, keep a safe distance and WASH your HANDS.

What To Expect From Counselling?
The counsellor / client relationship is a highly confidential one and s/he will not deliver reports or discuss what you talk over with him/her with anyone outside the office without your approval. Respect and confidentiality are very important and we wish to assure you that the matters you bring here will not be discussed elsewhere.
There are situations, however, where counsellors are legally required to disregard confidentiality. Specifically, if you reveal information that indicates a clear and immediate danger of injury to yourself or others or the abuse of a child, your counsellor will need to contact appropriate authorities.
Risks & Benefits
There are benefits and risks to the counselling process. Counselling may involve the risk of remembering unpleasant events and may arouse strong feelings.
Benefits of counselling may be an increased ability to live more effectively by improving your ability to cope with life pressures, family relationships and friends. You may also gain better understanding of yourself, your goals and values that will assist you in your personal and career growth.
Personal commitment to counselling is crucial for success. It is important that you be active, open and honest with your counsellor. Your most important task is to work toward the goals you and your counsellor have agreed upon.
Seeing a counsellor will be of little benefit without additional effort outside the counselling office. This work can include thinking about the material covered in your sessions, monitoring the behaviours you want to change or working on specific assignments, such as keeping a journal, reading a book, or practising a new skill.
