In your first session I’ll ask you – or you and your partner: “What brings you to counselling today?” The format of the session will depend on your specific needs.

Each person requires something unique, and so our discussion is deliberately unstructured. In this way, I can be guided by what is important for you to talk about, specifically.

Usually, my clients have something bothering them when they come in for the first time. It is normal to feel a bit nervous, so please be assured you are welcome to discuss whatever you feel. After our initial session, I’ll begin to understand your situation, and perhaps help you make sense of where you’d like to be, and what your goals and milestones are. This is also my opportunity to explain more about how I work, and the kind of shifts that are possible for us to make together.

…If you’re hoping for change – you’ve come to the right person.
It’s time to move out of pain, and into more stability, self compassion, and love than you ever thought possible.

Change and relief from this pain is achievable with counselling. Discover happiness, greater self confidence and better relationships through growth and change.

“The relationship you have with your therapist is as much a part of the healing as the content of the work I do with you. It is critical that you know, and truly feel, that I am in your corner, doing everything I can do understand what’s going on for you.”
