My personal style and philosophy of counselling is a reflection of my personal journey in a life borne out of suffering and survival, encouraging me to seize the day (“carpe diem”). Having the ability to be a truly integrative therapist I choose for the majority of my work to be a solution focused brief therapist. The style of counselling is based on a collaborative relationship between client and counsellor, encouraging empowerment and hope.
My professional portfolio includes wide experience in the medical world, involvement in human resources, a commercial directorship, a non-executive member of a Board and service in the criminal justice system.
I am a qualified and experienced supervisor of individuals and groups. I am committed to lifelong learning in order to enhance my practice and fulfil over and above the requirements for education, updating and personal supervision and development.
I am an associate to a number of Employer Assistance Providers offering therapy for employees and responding to emergencies through Critical Incident Debriefing.
