My expertiseTherapy & Counselling
Adolescents, Adults & Children
A Happier, Healthier You!
I am a therapist who works holistically with my clients to improve their functioning in all aspects of their lives. I use a variety of approaches depending on what works best for the client. I enjoy using a solution-focused approach which emphasises future possibilities, rather than dwelling in a problem-saturated past.
The past is important as it is often the source of maladaptive behaviour, but it is the future that we can change. I help clients with emotional problems, anxiety, stress, grief, relationships, work problems, anger and irritability – anything which is limiting their development as a person, whether they are eight or 80 years old.
I do a lot of work with teenagers, adolescents and young adults, helping them to cope with the stresses of modern day life and the dreaded process of ‘Adulting’. I also work with Teens and their families to facilitate healthy communication between them. Sure, you may have different ideas about things but that does not mean that you have to be enemies.
I like to work in a way that shows positive results after a relatively short time. Small changes to one’s thinking styles and patterns can have a marked effect on how we feel.
Assessments are sometimes necessary in order to discover where the problem lies.
Having fun can be wonderful therapy for children and adults, alike.
