I hold a Master of Arts in Psychology, a Master of Arts in Social Work and a Graduate Diploma in Relationship Counselling. I have been registered as an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker since 2011.
Since 2009 I have specialised in providing grief counselling to:
Some people use counselling as a space to reflect on their concerns to find their own solutions. Others want to learn techniques or strategies to help them to cope better with the challenges they are facing. I believe in tailoring the way I work to the unique needs of each person I meet. To enable me to be as effective as possible in the support I provide to people I draw upon a range of counselling theory and skills including acceptance and commitment therapy, gestalt therapy, positive psychology, strengths-based practice, narrative therapy, Radical Exposure Tapping (Level II, Advanced Practice), cognitive behavioural therapy, solution-focused brief therapy, and hypnotherapy.
