This form of counselling covers a range of issues/concerns that an individual may experience. Whether it is a personal issue or a relationship/friendship issue you would like to address then this is the counselling for you. I focus on the needs of each client which will guide the counselling journey.
Couples counselling focuses on the needs of both partners involved in the relationship.

The focus of this counselling is to work as a team to develop the skills and tools needed to develop a healthy and cohesive relationship.
This therapeutic tool is targeted to children. This type of counselling involves engaging in a variety of fun but appropriate activities whilst observing the child in order to understand them better. It is amazing to see how much a child can tell you just by playing with something. Whether the child has anxiety, low-mood or socio-emotional issues, Play Therapy is the right technique for them. It is not always possible to get a child to sit and tell you what is bothering them and therefore they are better able to express their thoughts and feelings through play.
This form of counselling targets individuals aged between 10-18 years old. Focus is on developing a trusting and open relationship with the client. This age group often struggle to express their feelings appropriately. The goal is to allow the client to guide the sessions whilst being held and heard by the counsellor.
Grief and loss counselling is often misunderstood as solely being for those that have lost someone owing to a death. However, it is definitely not just about the physical loss of a human being. It can include anything from the loss of a job, friends and break-ups. This form of counselling aims to help individuals develop healthy and constructive coping mechanisms when dealing with a loss.
This type of counselling focuses on the relationship dynamics and needs of the entire family system. I look at both the inter and intrapersonal needs and wants of each family member in order to allow them to gain a better understanding of one another. The aim is to build a safe and open environment where each member is heard. Communication is key when it comes to family counselling.
Trauma counselling is vital both immediately after a traumatic event as well as in the long term. When we experience a trauma, which can present in many forms, we don’t always realize the impact it has on us. A traumatic event can be anything from being involved in an accident, watching an accident, seeing a violent encounter, being involved in a violent encounter or seeing someone pass away. This form of therapy involves revisiting the trauma at a steady pace and understanding the traumatic event. At times this form of counselling can also include breathing/muscle relaxation techniques to help reduce the hyperarousal symptoms that may develop after a traumatic event. The aim of this type of counselling is to slowly desensitize you from the traumatic event and reduce the triggers.
