Are you experiencing anxiety, depression, low mood or uncertainty?
- Counselling with me will involve exploring your patterns and the themes of distress that keep cropping up for you.
- My Counselling approach is person-centered whereby I use these skills to suit you and your current circumstances to build a strong, trusting and the therapeutic relationship.
- I also utilize CBT techniques and tools, if you want a more structured approach to learning skills, for the present and your future.
- I practice coaching alongside my counselling, which offers you a structured, goal-setting orientation to the coaching in order to provide you with skills to manage your life, whether you’re experiencing anxiety, low mood or uncertainty.

Do you think the same negative thoughts that cause you to feel low in mood?
- We can explore historical messages that you’ve internalized. Create behaviour changes to aid raising mood. If you are hopeful, that is a good start.
- I am also trained in CFT or Compassion Focused Therapy which is a counselling therapy that allows you to look at your life experiences in a realistic way and from a non-blaming stance.
