“My passion as a psychotherapist and counsellor

 lies in walking alongside my clients to  facilitate a process of change.

The world is in a constant change. And, so are we. Change can be scary and challenging but also rewarding and liberating. We often react with’ freeze’ or ‘fight’ or ‘flight’ to anything that is’unfamiliar. We avoid facing the ‘unknown’. Or, more accurately, we are wanting to avoid ‘letting go’ of the comfort of the ‘known’. Therefore, we remain in a ‘stuck’ place and dissatisfied with life or relationships. More often then not, we struggle with outer/external changes and forget about inner/internal changes which would allow us to adjust and embrace external changes more easily. Old conditioning and old outmoded beliefs will prevent us to embrace the ‘new’.

In the counselling and psychotherapy sessions we will explore some of your social conditioning and  old beliefs that for most parts are ‘handed down’ through generations and now are outdated and perhaps no longer useful for your personal journey.
