I have been working as a counsellor for the last 7 years. In this time I have supported people from very diverse backgrounds to heal and grow as people. I feel very privileged to work closely with people who want a change in their relationship with themselves or others and I respect the courage and strength that this takes.
I have found that as humans, we all have a desire to hold on to hope and seek solutions to the challenges that trouble us. Sometimes this involves healing from a past experience that caused us pain, other times it involves dealing with sudden changes we weren’t prepared for.
My role as a counsellor is to assist people in finding their own solutions by drawing on their strengths and helping them become aware of the negative thought patterns that keep them stuck.
Counsellors are trained to identify patterns and beliefs that you might not be aware of. These thought patterns make us re-experience the same patterns in our life and relationships, and block us from realising our potential. Only by identifying them and challenging them can we break free and live a life we look forward to every day.
My approach as a counsellor focuses on helping you to identify your strengths, as opposed to “correcting” your weaknesses or just treating you as a mental health label (e.g. “a depressive”). During our sessions, I give the necessary time and attention to finding out your individual traits, preferences and desires to help you unlock your own definition of fulfilment.
