About me and my therapy practice

Are you struggling with intrusive thoughts, overthinking, worrying, feeling sad, hopeless, feeling like you are disconnected and or avoiding friends and families?

I can help you!

Are you feeling isolated, a sense of not belonging, confusion, avoiding any kind of social interaction or desperately needing reconnect again?

I can help you!

I'm Dafiny and I work with pre-teens, adolescents, young adults and adults.

Through counselling, clients can recover motivation, perspective, hope, strengthen problem solve skills, build resilience and learn how tolerate anxiety; they also can overcome unwanted memories and sadness not only but also experience joy again.

As an Integrative counsellor in a nutshell my approach allows me to use different tools to better help you to explore your past and or present, relationships with self and others and if needed help you to connect some dots and find some clarity in why you may do things in a certain way, allow you to change if that is what you desire. Also part of the therapeutic relationship we can use a range of techniques such as: games, role play, drawing, crafts, mindfulness, blobs/ feelings pictures, solution focus exercises ( CBT) and videos; etc as long as you want to use them, as the base of my work is client -centred.

My focus is to help individuals heal, energise, and become aware of their inner strengths; I provide a safe non-judgemental space, where clients are made to feel valued, understood, listened to and free to express and explore any concern.

As an integrative counsellor, part of the therapeutic relationship I have with my clients means we can use a range of technics such as: games, role play, drawing, crafts, mindfulness, blobs pictures, solution focus exercises, etc.

As long as you, the client, feels comfortable with this as the base of my work is client -centred, meaning; I respect that my clients know what is best for them.
