“If there’s one thing that will stop people from achieving their goals, it’s a wall. However, as I see it, without a wall there’s no place to build a door.”
- Craig D. Lounsbrough
A little bit about me... My heart is for helping people explore and find meaning, hope and purpose in life's challenging circumstances. Counselling is a collaborative process and my desire is to empower you to make positive changes, resolve personal and inter-personal conflict, strengthen communication and draw on strengths to move through difficulties with confidence. A gentle, patient and non-judgemental approach allows my clients to quickly feel at ease and comfortable as they engage in counselling. My work within education for 20 years and private practice for the past 5 years has provided me with great insight into the issues and challenges faced by children, adolescents, adults, couples and families.
My approach to counselling and psychotherapy is holistic encompassing the emotional, cognitive, social, physical, and spiritual aspects of being human, highlighting and honouring these connections. My work is informed by a range of well-established therapeutic modalities including; Trauma Informed Practices, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), ACT Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), Play Therapy, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (TF-CBT) and Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
