With the Covid-19 outbreak, we are facing such challenging times....perhaps you're seeking support because of something that's come up now?.... or perhaps this time has highlighted something that has been there for a while.. or both.
I, like many psychologists, am now providing counselling and therapy online or by phone.
Feel free to contact me to have a chat or to make an appointment.
I've been practising as a Psychologist for over 27 years, providing counselling & psychotherapy to adults and young adults 18 years and over.
My logo is "Get to the Heart of the Matter" because that's my interest and particular skill..to help you get to the bottom of your concerns so you can truly turn things around. Once that's known, then the way forward becomes clear. I believe that when we come to truly know and value ourselves, things can truly shift.
I believe that what we need is already within us and we can discover that, make changes and grow and gain new insights and perspectives, with the help of a supportive and skillful guide.
If you imagine that the way to deal with your problem or issue is part of your life journey, then a counsellor and psychotherapist is like a guide with the capacity to walk alongside you for a time, with skills and knowledge like a map, compass and torch to light the way.
It's just the way of things that making a change or dealing with challenges in our lives often requires help from another. Self-help only goes so far. That's why recognizing we need help can be such a relief.
You'll find me warm and gentle in my approach. My heart logo also speaks to the compassion that I believe to be part of making the journey to greater health and happiness, and what we find at the core of ourselves and others as we do so.
