I believe in a direct, genuine and honest approach to helping. If you choose to work with me, the process of change will be collaborative. I believe in helping you in a way that will strengthen the skills you will need to navigate other struggles you may face in the future.
I believe we should decide together not just what the "problem" might be, but what your goals are. Because I am clear on what my role is in helping you reach those goals, you are likely to feel safe and supported in therapy, moving towards your goals.
As a former university counselling instructor and supervisor, I'm well aware of the research on what is effective in psychotherapy, regardless of a therapists' style. I know what facilitates real change and I make effective use of your therapy time. Everyone grows and changes. We all face struggles in our lives. In order to help you develop to your full potential and to get through tricky times, I will draw on a wide range of traditional and creative methods to help.
You will find me open minded and easy going. My background has been colourful and my path a winding one. I've grown to understand and accept people from all walks of life. I connect really well with people who feel they have been often misunderstood, especially creative and gifted people (some of whom may not know they are such). My clients, regardless of their issue or their background, usually find it really easy to talk to me and appreciate the combination of genuine caring and results-oriented approach. I am easy to trust and feel safe with.
