Live Your Best Life

As a counselling therapist, my aim is to help clients achieve their goals and create a meaningful life. I believe that developing a trusting relationship with my clients and providing a non-judgmental space can lead to transformation.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is a form of counselling that is effective for a range of problems. It focuses on thoughts, attitudes and beliefs that may be limiting or problematic.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) helps clients create the life they value. Acceptance, behavioural and mindfulness strategies are used.

Solution-Focused Therapy

Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT) is a short-term goal-focused evidence-based therapeutic approach, which incorporates positive psychology principles and practices, and which helps clients change by constructing solutions rather than focusing on problems.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

Our thoughts and beliefs create our emotions and consequently, can contribute to our behaviours. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) helps people identify and change unhelpful thoughts and beliefs, resulting in decreased distress.   

Acceptance & Commitment Therapy

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) helps people identify what matters most to them and create a life that reflects those personal values.  Practicing acceptance, and using 

behavioural and mindfulness strategies

are part of Acceptance and

Commitment Therapy.

Narrative Therapy

Our personal experiences become our personal stories.  These stories, and the meaning we give to them, influence how we see ourselves and the world. Narrative Therapy helps people identify their stories, and make room for alternative or preferred storylines.

Dream-Work

Dreams are a symbolic extension of our conscious thoughts. They reflect the knowledge of our subconscious, our intuitive selves. We process our life issues while we sleep, and dreams are a way to share solutions with our conscious awareness. Dreamwork brings the messages of dreams into the counselling experience. I use a step-by-step approach to help clients interpret their dreams.

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is being aware of what you're sensing and feeling in the moment, without interpretation or judgment. Mindfulness-based strategies can help us see things more clearly and is proven to reduce stress, improve sleep, diminish the impact of chronic pain and lessen over-thinking.

Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is combining professional counselling with hypnosis. Clients are invited into a state of focused attention using guided meditation. This very relaxed and heightened state of awareness allows clients to more readily accept suggestions given by the counsellor. These suggestions are previously agreed upon by the client as part of the treatment plan. Hypnotherapy is a proven therapeutic approach.
