What can I offer you?

Counselling services Adelaide HillsWell, it all depends on what you are looking for and where you are heading! Perhaps you are wanting some help with problem-solving or decision-making? Or maybe you are interested in personal growth and learning about yourself and others in relationships? Whilst I may not have "all  the answers”, I can offer you support on your journey to discover helpful questions that guide you towards your unique answers and meanings; to explore creative strategies and solutions that work for you. 

My role is to create a safe, supportive and non-judgemental space where you can freely explore your experiences and perceptions more deeply. Using cognitive-behavioural (CBT), narrative, psychodynamic and solution-focused approaches, we work together by reflecting upon your experiences, thoughts and feelings to bring you greater clarity and understanding of their meaning, in a way which is life-affirming and unique for you.

You may find that one session is all you need but usually a number of sessions are required to explore issues more fully. To complement and enhance the therapeutic work in the session, you may find it helpful to keep a journal for reflection and monitoring your progress.

If you have any questions or concerns I am happy to discuss these with you prior to booking.
