I have been working as a social worker for 20 years and bring my experience of abuse, violence, mental health, addiction, HIV/AIDS, homelessness and housing to my work as a therapeutic counsellor. I have also worked in health care supporting patients and families dealing with chronic and complex health issues, and end of life care.
I come from a place of hope and deep caring for personal problems and challenges, and have witnessed the amazing transformations that can take place. I look to approaches in Narrative Therapy to start creating a new way of understanding the effect the problem is having on you, and use tools such as mindfulness and art to help getting to these other parts of yourself.
I believe in working collaboratively to create your new path. My clients describe me as deeply caring, personable, creative and committed to creating change. I look forward to beginning this journey with you.
Approaches/techniques: Narrative, mindfulness, art based approaches
