Kairos (καιρός) is an ancient Greek word meaning the right or opportune moment when an opening appears and insight or change can occur.


Psychotherapy opens space for awareness and reflection. It provides opportunities for enquiry and the exploration of all areas of life, to assist understanding, integration and the development of new responses in familiar and/or challenging situations.

Selina works with you to clarify the areas you want to focus on. She works in the here-and-now, with current experience, future goals and historical moments and events. Selina is aware that the social and cultural landscapes we live in has a bearing on our life experiences and she may assist you to investigate thoughts, beliefs and values that are influencing your ability to live the life you want.
Short-term and longer-term sessions are available. The first few sessions provide an opportunity to see what the next steps might be and whether a referral elsewhere might be useful.


Relationships can be intensely rewarding and also intensely painful. Psychotherapy and Counselling provides a stable, neutral place to explore many different relational areas, such as:
 communication and boundaries
 transitions and separation
 new relationships
 parenting challenges
 differences of values, culture, spiritual understanding
 sexual difficulties
 mental health concerns
 supporting others through challenges

Trauma, neglect and abuse, either recent or past, can have long-lasting effects in a person's life, including: loss of self esteem, depression, anxiety, reduced sense of safety, nightmares, flashbacks, hyper-arousal, PTSD symptoms, sudden anger, sexual difficulties, confusion and isolation.

Psychotherapy assists the resolution of such events, to reclaim life and hope, and new possibilities.

Selina has worked in the area of trauma, including sexual trauma, for the last 20 years.

Parenting can be a challenge at the best of times. When we are stressed or upset, it can be even harder to parent the way we want. Guilt and shame can build up about how we are feeling and behaving toward our children.

Selina provides a confidential and supportive place for parents to look at what’s happening and to develop skills to understand and manage stress and anger. Learning different ways of responding to the frustrations of day-to-day parenting can give choice and a positive way forward.

Supervision offers an opportunity to reflect on the systems operating in both your client(s), and your responses to them. Supervision increases effectiveness and confidence, and is part of the ongoing development of a practitioner. Supervision also provides a place to reflect on ethical dilemmas.

Selina has provided supervision since 2010. She draws on her own experience of supervision, as well as her experience of supervising other counsellors’ work.
