About me

I have worked in private practice, private mood disorders units and public health sectors as a Family Therapist/Psychotherapist for the past twenty five years. 

What is psychotherapy and how does it work?

Psychotherapy is a collaborative treatment based on the relationship between you and your therapist. It is private, safe, non-judgemental and objective.

Friends/partner’s and family members are often the first people that we turn to when we have a life problem. However, if the solution to your problem is beyond the training and scope of your immediate resources, most people look further afield for professional help with their life matters that are not resolving, despite trying several alternative therapies.

 Irrespective of your life issues, psychotherapy helps you to learn how to take control of your life and respond to life’s challenging circumstances with a strong set of coping skills that put you in charge of your life.  Choosing Psychotherapy provides a way to empower you and move forward with confidence
