Counselling/Therapy Services

Life guarantees us experience of losses, troubled feelings, as well as happiness along the way. Are you experiencing problems within yourself, at work, or with your relationships? Do you want your life to be different? If so I can provide you with the guidance needed, the skills, insight and capability to manage emotions and to think and act differently.

I take a biopsychosocial/holistic approach to health and wellbeing.

I use evidence-based psychological approaches that are tailored to a person's needs including:
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT)
  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
  • Mindfulness-Based Therapy
  • Positive Psychology
