My main modality of work is EMDR and I use Narrative Therapy and Somatic work in my work also. I work with people on all sorts of things that life may throw up. I am also an EAP counsellor. My work challenges a lot of your thought processes while teaching you skills. While in my work a lot of talking is involved you still have the choice of what you wish to share and how much you wish to converse. My work is based on the clients needs, responses, and the outcomes the client seeks. All my work, is respectful of you as a person and your needs, even though it can be challenging at times. Success is the work you take away and use to help yourself. I provide psychoeducation and tools to help you. All my work is collaborative. I work with families, couples and individuals. I work with issues from adverse childhood experiences to sexual and intimacy's issues. I relate well to people of all ages. For people of retirement age we explore life stages and changes and also life after retirement. People have told me that although the work I do challenges them it helps them find a way through. I respect all ethnicity, religion, sexuality/gender and do not judge what you have to bring to me. Should you need, I am happy to have a short conversation with you before you decide to make an appointment because a good client-counsellor fit is important.
