My Approach

We provide a safe place to talk with a qualified therapist and the skills, encouragement and support to be able to comfortably make the changes you want in your life…. Right Now.

Everything is private and confidential, and in each session the needs of the client are foremost in the determining of how therapy will proceed.

A major part of change is first bringing something to our conscious awareness. Then in a process of gaining insights and awareness of underlying blocks you can discover positive options available to return to emotional, mental and spiritual health.

In a series of one-hour sessions clients engage in an open process of communication, revelation and resolution. They are guided towards insights and awareness of the positive choices and options available to them and assisted in developing new skills to make the changes they want in their life. Moving towards a resolution of often highly-charged emotional issues provides individuals with greater feelings of self-awareness, self-empowerment and self-esteem.
