COUNSELLING
Family and Child
Counselling

Parenting is full of challenges

 and it is perfectly okay to not know all the answers - let's talk about it.

Adolescent 
Counselling

Being a teenager can be hard... but that doesn't mean it has to be all of the time. Whatever it may be, I'm here to help you through it.

Young Adult
Counselling

Working with you one on one to inspire change in your life or help face issues that are hard to manage alone 

My Approach

My counselling approach is eclectic, as I am guided by your needs and who you are. Fundamentally I take a person-centred approach and draw on a variety of approaches that best suit the individual or couples needs. I use approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Narrative and Gestalt Therapies. I focus on practical strategies to bring about emotional regulation through the use of approaches that are the best fit for the individual or couple that is taking the great step toward bettering themselves.
