I have been working as a Counsellor for 9 years. I have been working at the Counselling Centre Marton since August 2017. I have experience counselling in family violence, anxiety, depression, trauma,youth and family work.

I work from a client centred/strengths based approach using CBT and Narrative methodology.

Counsellor

It is a privilege to work at the Counselling Centre with people of all ages from the Marton community.

While I like working in a Client-Centred way, I also make use of techniques from other approaches, e.g. CBT, ACT, Solution Focused, and other creative therapies.

My previous counselling experience cover a wide range of personal and family difficulties, such as: relationships, parenting and child development, working with youth, family violence and victim support, depression and anxiety, career and work issues, grief and loss.
