How I work

  • By providing support and encouragement for people undergoing change or wanting to make changes in their lives.
  • I use therapeutic conversation; in other words we talk and listen to each other.
  • Our first task is to build a relationship that fosters trust and confidence; and through this we build a working partnership.
  • I believe that counselling works by empowering people to find their own solutions to their problems.
  • Counselling with me is confidential, respectful and nonjudgmental.
