Counselling/Therapy Services

Our initial session will involve exploring what has brought you to therapy. Together we will build an understanding of what may be contributing to your current concerns and identify your goals for treatment. I will then tailor a plan to meet these needs.

Therapy can be reflective in nature (with a focus on building insight) and/or skills-focused (learning specific strategies for managing difficult thoughts, feelings and behaviours).

I value building a strong therapeutic alliance through a warm, calm and flexible therapeutic style.

 

Counselling/Therapy Approach

I draw from a range of therapeutic approaches, depending on your individual needs including:
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT)
  • Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)
  • Mindfulness
  • Motivational Interviewing

Background and Experience

My training and clinical work has enriched me with experience across the domains of mental health, personality, criminal offending and neurocognitive difficulty.
