Areas of Special Interest

I can support with the following areas: anxiety, depression/low mood, lack of motivation, stress and burnout, relationship difficulties, sexual trauma, anger management, adjustment difficulties, personal growth, and problematic behaviours.


Counselling/Therapy Services

My therapeutic support helps clients overcome life problems by helping them move forward, with self-compassion, in a valued direction that provides them with meaning and purpose. Where needed, I help clients develop insight into their concerns and/or skills and techniques to make positive changes in their lives.


Counselling/Therapy Approach

I use a range of therapy models that are evidence-based and aim to support positive change.

I incorporate concepts and techniques from the following:
  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  • Schema Therapy (ST)
  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) skills
  • Motivational Interviewing
