About me and my therapy practice

Bs (Hons) Psychology,

Dip Therapeutic Counselling,

Dip Social Science (counselling major),

Cert in Nutrition and Health,

 

“When the other person is hurting, confused, troubled, anxious, alienated, terrified; or when they are doubtful of self-worth, uncertain as to identity, then understanding is called for. The gentle and sensitive companionship of an empathic stance… provides illumination and healing. In such situations deep understanding is, I believe, the most precious gift one can give to another.”

― Carl R. Rogers


My approach works to acknowledge and engage the 'whole-self'. I'm concerned with how your sense of worth, identity and overall wellbeing has/is being effected by your past and present experiences. This means acknowledging everything in your environment that may have an influence: relationships, culture, society, family and friends. My role is to support you to become conscious of who you are beyond these influences, so that you can live from a place that is in response to your feeling and needs. 

This way of processing develops a real trust in the self. One that most people have never had, because we are born into systems that constantly control, instruct, judge and direct all that we do.

Thus in therapy 'we' will work to undo all the ‘shoulds’ until you get to the point where you know the difference between what you think you should do, and what you know you need and want to do.

Working with me will enable your language to develop from: 

‘I should'

to: ‘I feel…because I need…so I will….’

​I believe the process I offer works to inspire self- awareness, which further develops self-acceptance, and inevitably encourages and sustains deep internal healing.
