The challenges and stressors of life can be very painful and may leave us feeling overwhelmed and struggling to cope. We may also struggle with anxiety, depression or a range of other feelings/difficulties in response. It is helpful to reach out for support at these times. I strive to provide a warm, non-judgemental and safe space where we work together to develop an understanding of who you are and why you may be struggling at this time. A deeper understanding facilitates new ways of responding, which alleviates suffering and allows us to better navigate life’s highs and lows.
I work with individuals (children, adolescents and adults) and with families. I provide both short-term therapy to develop coping skills to improve your current functioning, and long-term therapy to assist you to develop a deeper understanding of where your difficulties may come from and how they impact on your life. I also offer play therapy to children struggling with emotional and behavioural difficulties, as well as support and guidance to their caregivers.
I understand that it may be difficult to start a therapeutic process, especially if you do not know what to expect. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or refer to my website for more information on the process. I aim to create a space where you feel safe and supported.
