Practice

My approach

My approach to counselling is, in the main, integrative.  This means that I incorporate various counselling approaches in my work.

The main counselling approaches I use are: Psychodynamic, Humanistic (person-centered, existential) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

My work focuses on the therapeutic relationship between my client and myself which helps to enhance understanding and trust.

About my practice 

I work with individuals and couples ( 18 years and above).  Sessions are on a weekly basis and are usually on the same day and at the same time. However, I offer flexibility to accommodate clients’ schedules.

Sessions are available on weekdays as well as on Saturday.  Some evenings are available too.

Sessions for individuals are 50 minutes long and for couples 75 minutes long.

I offer short and long-term therapy.

My counselling room is self-contained with its own entry and its own facilities. It provides a comfortable and tranquil atmosphere and engenders a safe and confidential environment.
