Welcome to Counselling

Everyone experiences difficulties

within themselves or with

others at some point.


You may choose to come to counselling to deal with these issues or to learn deeper things about yourself.  Many people find that once they enter my practice, they are able to sit down, relax and talk to someone who is non-judgmental and holds no expectations of you.  This is a comforting experience.


Friends and family are at times of great help but don’t have the skills that a trained Psychologist has in order to provide those specific answers and solutions to many of your difficulties.




What I Offer You

Effectiveness: I am experienced and highly trained in therapy to help you achieve the best results you deserve using healthier coping tools for simple and complex issues across time.

Care: I focus on understanding your struggles and feelings for who you are without placing a diagnosis or label on you.  I'm here to help you change for the better and be the better version of yourself.

Depth: I use Psychodynamic counselling which allows you to gain an emotional awareness of the underlying causes of your issues, instead of a band-aid solution or quick fix that doesn't exist and that doesn’t last.

Trust: A safe, confidential and non judgmental space to express your thoughts and feelings freely.  It's important to feel comfortable enough to be able to talk about your troubles and feel relief.

Value: I take time to prepare our sessions and reflect on your issues so to understand and help you improve in therapy.  Before every session I research the topics we discuss so I can offer you the best help possible.   It's tailored to suit your needs.
