Counselling Services

I employ a variety of modalities streamlined to suit you and your concerns, that acknowledge the huge interconnection between mind, body and spirit and help you to move forward in your life.

(ACT) Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and (CBT) Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

I offer both short-term and longer-term counselling.


Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT®)

RTT® is a hybrid method developed by Marisa Peer in the UK. It incorporates the most effective components of hypnotherapy (guided visualisation), psychotherapy, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and NLP in a unique combination that produces a transformative effect on clients. RTT® can help clients release the behaviour and beliefs that are holding them back, so they can take back their power and fulfil their life’s potential.


Counselling Approach

My training, skills and life experience enable me to work alongside you as you heal old wounds and let go of the past, identify and remove limiting beliefs, overcome challenges, set goals and define your life purpose. In doing so, you can discover what is important to you now, connect truly with yourself and with others, and live an amazing and fulfilling life.

I value people, their passions, their interests, their desire to find their freedom and live their best life. I offer a variety of resources and skills along with myself and what I bring, to work with you in an holistic environment of compassion and empathy, safety and confidentiality, acceptance, support, curiosity, growth and healing, warmth, validation and fun!


Background and Experience
