“My profession as a Counsellor has given me the privilege to meet people from all ages and walks of life. I regard clients with a deep and humbling respect for their courage. Different situations, circumstances and stages of life can cause painful feelings and states of confusion, depression and anxiety. As a Counsellor, I offer people the opportunity to explore their thoughts, feelings and concerns in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental place. I believe in helping people gain a greater awareness and understanding of themselves by discussing together and using various therapeutic techniques including creative expression, mindfulness and others. In my experience, this process helps us to believe in ourselves and our capabilities and this in turn unlocks our own powerful resources and enables us to face our problems in a different way.”
