Counselling and Psychotherapy occurs in a safe environment that enables the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist to gently unfold. The process from beginning to end occurs at the client's pace.
Counselling and Psychotherapy is best described as a confidential, genuine, non-judgemental, transparent and empathic service. Once a sense of trust is established, unresolved issues can be openly explored, given meaning and accepted.
Counselling and Psychotherapy facilitates a gradual increase in self- awareness. Increased self-awareness instils a greater understanding of how thinking patterns, emotional expressions and sensori-motor patterns of behaviour are intricately linked. Developing self-awareness in a safe environment opens up the possibility for inner change.
I am very down to earth and take a practical, common sense approach to my work. I use ordinary, everyday meaningful examples to help clients explore how they can come to terms with their unique situations. I am always struck by what a privilege it is for me to be trusted with such emotional depth. Thanks to all those who have so far shared their lives with me.
