I worked in Human Resources in the Financial Services Industry in London for ten years. In 2008 I trained as a trauma counsellor with The Survivors of Crime Unit at Rondebosch Police Station. I volunteered there for two years as a trauma counsellor whilst also counselling at Families South Africa (FAMSA). I have been in private practice since May 2010, focusing on adult therapy.
My counselling approach
Humanistic counselling which encourages self-growth and the aim is to help you to realise your strengths, creativity and choice in the 'here and now'.
Client-centred counselliing which provides positive regard, sincerity and non-judgment to enable the healing process.
Solution-focused brief counselling which concentrates on finding solutions and highlights your strengths and competences. It looks at what is working already and how you can you do more of it.
Systemic therapy which works with those in close relationships, whether they are related to each other or not, to initiate change. It looks at how the individuals relate to one another in that system rather than focusing on each person’s issues.
"And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others”
