About me and my therapy practice

I am a mature and experienced Counsellor with over 14 years face-to-face counselling in all aspects of The Human Condition. I have wide and comprehensive personal experience of life's many challenges, and have worked both in the corporate world and as self-employed. I have also been a daughter, a wife, a mother, a grandmother.  

My training is Eclectic, which includes a wide variety of Therapeutic Approaches which I specifically tailor to each individual client's needs.  My practice begins as Person-Centred, which puts the client first-and-foremost in the Therapeutic Engagement; it includes a Psychodynamic search into what may contribute to cause, and is then mainly Solution-Focused (using mainly REBT and CBT practices), as I have spent 11 years in Employee Assistance Programs (Workplace Counselling) and tend towards Evidence-based.  In cases of Bereavement, I can help with acceptance and process.

I have successfully helped clients with issues of Stress, Anxiety, Anger, Low Self-Esteem, Loss, Bereavement (including Pets), Relationships (including Family Relationships and Matrimonial Issues), Domestic Abuse, Rape & Sexual Abuse, False Allegations, and many of the other issues that life deals to us.
