My Approach

I have real world understanding of challenges faced by people of all ages.  I utilise an integrative model of practice drawing on elements from a variety of theoretical approaches to suit the individual or multiple and complex needs of those I support.  I have a flexible approach to my counselling and support by bringing my services to you, in the comfort of your own home or at a place you feel most comfortable.  I am also able to provide services via telephone, Skype, and/or email. In all services offered, I focus on your strengths to build your capacity for the change you want, in a calm and reflective way.  I acknowledge and appreciate our unique differences and the importance of open and honest communication.


You will be assisted to identify and modify patterns of behaviour with challenges in your relationships and help you to be part of the solution.  Together we will evaluate specific problem areas in your life, such as conflicts with family or friends or significant life changes and work towards developing more realistic expectations.  

Improving your interpersonal and intrapersonal communication skills will improve the quality of your relationships and reduce your distress and the pressures of social functioning.
