Individuals

Long and Short-term Work

Safety & Collaboration

I offer two services to my individual clients: psychotherapy and counselling. Both approaches are focussed on your needs, but address slightly different situations and run over different time frames.

Regardless of which approach you choose to take – short or long term – my priority remains you. I’ll work to establish a relationship with you that’s collaborative, accepting, authentic, and honours the unique world in which you live.

Psychotherapy

A focus on change in self.

Psychotherapy focuses to a greater extent on achieving change in the personality or self. Similar issues can arise time and again in different contexts and relationships. Psychotherapy helps you focus on any issues you may have, achieve better self-understanding, and change long-standing patterns of behaviour that may be disrupting relationships, work, and study.

In my work, I always take a humanistic and person-centred approach. My aim is to gently guide you towards self-awareness and self-actualisation rather than simply provide advice or a diagnosis. In order to do this, I work with an emphasis on understanding and caring, while also drawing from mindfulness-based practices.

Mindfulness aims to support you in developing a different and easier relationship to problematic thoughts, emotions, and sensations. I have worked with countless clients using a psychotherapeutic approach and have seen them grow, build insight, and experience change.

Psychotherapy is a long-term approach, sessions are 60 minutes in duration and held once a week or fortnightly over an extended period.

Counselling

Build capacity, develop goals, and reduce distress.

Counselling aims to enhance your capacity to cope with specific life challenges such as relationships ending, workplace issues, grief, transition and anxiety.

Seeing a counsellor helps resolve crises, reduce distress, develop goals for change, and improve wellbeing. Through the counselling process, you can gain a deeper understanding of your behaviours, choices and decisions. This approach is based in the short-term and therefore requires a different type of focus.

These sessions are often more solutions-focused and strengths-based, supporting you as you focus on your existing strengths and skills to build resilience, solve problems, and develop a path forward.

Counselling sessions are 60 minutes in duration and take place weekly over a four-to-ten-week period.

Individual Work

Person-centred and trauma-informed.

My work is person-centred and trauma-informed. You can read a selection of my writing on these and other topics on this page. Alternatively, you can read all of my articles on therapy and wellbeing in the Mannaz Journal, with contributions from a wonderful new interdisciplinary collective offering counselling, psychotherapy, breathwork, and coaching.
