Because of my personality, training and experience, I provide you with two of the most important ingredients for success in therapy.
I love what I do and genuinely want to help you get more of the life you want. Clients tell me that my open nature, and kind, gentle way with clients, makes them feel accepted and safe to discuss whatever’s bothering them. I provide you with acceptance and safety to talk about what you need to. This is one of the most important ingredients in helping you make the changes you want.
Listening to your personal story will be both an honour and a privilege for me. Listening with interest and empathy means that you will feel heard and understood. This is the other most important ingredients that will help you make the changes you want.
These two ingredients help you experience a positive and supportive relationship with me, your counsellor. Why is that so important? Countless studies on the most important aspects of therapy that contribute to growth and change is the positive relationship between you and your counsellor. To do that you need to feel safe and accepted, heard, and understood.
And by forming a strong supportive foundation, I want to give you more than ways to cope—I want to teach you the tools to overcome your problems.
