Who am I?
The biggest compliment I have ever received was when I was told that I make people feel safe. I feel that reflects what I embody and what I aspire to be to others, a safe place. I am naturally warm and empathetic yet inquisitive and driven. I am truly motivated by the need to help those touched by trauma and strive to help clients find healthy perceptions of themselves.
My goal as a counsellor is to give my clients the therapeutic space they need to allow their relationships to strengthen so as they can know themselves as peaceful, complete, whole and safe.
‘I believe that no single approach is the one for every individual and so my training includes the person centred and psychodynamic modalities. This comprehensive theoretical base allows me to draw on a variety of skills and knowledge to meet clients exactly where they are, and assist them in getting to where they would like to be.’
