I am a retired GP, with a long-standing interest in helping people with mental health issues. I completed Diplomas in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in 2000 and Integrative Counselling in 2022.
As a counsellor, I appreciate being able to spend extended time with clients helping them work through issues to improve their mental health and enjoyment of life.
Having walked through many different life experiences with my patients, I love getting alongside people making them feel understood and cared for no matter what is going on in their lives. By providing a place of support in which to explore what’s going on, I see clients empowered to make changes to move forward through their difficulties to get to a better place in life.
I enjoy providing resources to help clients, but I also see the therapeutic benefit of simply being a very good listener.
