My Experience

I have worked extensively with children, young people and adults with a wide range of issues.

I have done extensive on-site support work for workplaces and I'm contracted to provide employment assisted counselling for employees.

What is Counselling for?

Counselling helps people make sense of their world and to recognise they have choices. I will work with you to help you explore your thoughts, feelings, behaviours, experiences and beliefs. I will work respectfully and safely with you allowing you to feel free to express yourself. I listen non-judgementally with unconditional positive regard to help you make any desired changes and to lead a more resourceful life.

I will work with you at your own pace and we will talk together to establish what would be most helpful for you. Counselling is like an extra set of eyes to view our lives through.

I seek to understand my clients in the context of the realities of their environment and to help them gain insight, explore choices for change, develop new strategies to manage challenges and develop resilience. I am experienced in working with a wide range of issues and with people of all ages. I am a warm and caring counsellor committed to the benefits of counselling and your well being.
