“My approach is integrative, collaborative and active in focusing on the issues identified by you to address in therapy. I work to identify your personal strengths and abilities, and focus on how you can use these to move forward to achieve well-being and psychological health. Different styles of therapy are taken into consideration when working with you. These include Person-Centred therapy, Cognitive-Behavioural therapy, Psychodynamic and other styles. Emphasis throughout is always placed on your individual needs and your personal goals for your time in therapy.”
She facilitates personal development groups and is a university lecturer in areas of mental health, sexuality and counselling and psychotherapy.
She believes that by providing quality mental health services, and using the most up-to-date evidence based practices, therapy can help the individual reach their full potential and become active members of their community. During her time as a therapist, her enthusiasm, respect and appreciation of therapeutic work and its transformative qualities has never ceased to grow.
