The most difficult phase of life is not when no-one understands you, it's when you don't understand yourself. Every person has the capacity to transform their lives by finding clarity and self empowerment.
I have successfully supported clients to:
Overcome anxiety/panic, depression
Feel more confident, increase self-esteem
Have more rewarding relationships
Resolve trauma (present and past)
Manage anger and stress effectively
Develop new perspectives and strategies for a healthier lifestyle
Learn to live with the loss of loved ones
Live with chronic illness in an effective and meaningful way
Resolve family issues
Cope effectively through separation and divorce

Lifespan integration is a therapeutic process in which the therapists goal is to connect the client's present self, with her/his past self.
This is accomplished by mapping out the client's memories, and then choosing one of those events and taking the client back in time to that event. They then resolve an issue, connect with their former self and take
their former self up through time to the present in order to connect the two
Narrative therapy is a method that uses the concept of stories and applies them to ones life. This allows the client and therapist to solve problems
from a distance, meaning both the client and therapist are mentally
distanced from the problem.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
CBT is a therapy where new ways of thinking are suggested to the client to improve their everyday life. In doing so the client may improve her/his life one suggestion at a time.
Humanistic therapy aims to inform the client of his/her current status in the now and aid in recognizing their strengths and talents. It seeks to help one grow, and enforce their creativity.
Solution Focused Therapy
Solution focused therapy or brief therapy focuses on solutions in order to solve problems one may be experiencing.
Unlike other therapeutic methods, solution focused therapy does not focus
on the origin of the problems a client may have.
