"I see you, I hear you and you DO matter".
If you're reading this then you've probably been scouring
the web looking for information, answers, directions, help or even hope.
Life can be challenging for everyone at times whether it be a traumatic experience such as a relationship breakup, divorce, death, bullying or just trying to manage or cope with family members, in-laws and certain friends.
When changes and events
occur, we search to find a new way of being to help us cope or manage.
In my experience, its acquiring the appropriate skills or coping
mechanisms to manage them effectively that makes all the difference.
Sometimes unexpected events life just that throw us off balance or can pull the rug right from out beneath us or something totally blind-sides us and we're left to wonder "what do I do now?"
Self-Esteem and Personal Development
love working with individuals who really want to live their authentic
self. All too often people are living the life that others expect of
them. No wonder, we forget who we really are or who we wish to be when
we dance to the beat of another's drum. Happiness isn't impossible, when
you know who you are.
Working with the children
Working with children from the ages of about 8 - 16, particularly boys,
is something I'm truly passionate about. Over the years, I have gained a reputation for making a difference and everlasting
change to the "black sheep in the family". In my experience these
"black sheep" tend to be the most sensitive members of the family and
act out when they run out of socially acceptable ways of expressing themselves.
Marriage Counselling - Mend it don't end it!
work collectively with couples to tease apart the issues that are
impacting their relationship. Then collaboratively, through mediation,
work towards understanding and resolution of the real issues. I personally
tailor a relationship plan with specific details and actions - I
understand couples want results not just the "now reflect back what you've just heard" approach to communication.
understand the pressures of parenting, particularly of adolescents and
the difficulties parenting this stage can bring. Counselling areas
include, self-esteem, confidence and helping children survive their
Grief and Loss Counselling
specialists spend many years working their way up to the more difficult
cases, I took the enormous leap by accepting a clinical placement
position with palliative care patients working with the most vulnerable,
scared, lonely and often most isolated people in our community. This
experience has fundamentally shaped the way in which I work one-on-one
with my clients and one which I truly treasure.
Executive Counselling and Small Business Coaching
my corporate knowledge and experience, through genuinely
empathising, I also help pressured executives and other high profile
individuals to attain equilibrium in their lives by teaching the skills
necessary to manage their expectations of themselves and of others. In
business, there are 3 essential building blocks; Art, Science and
Relationships. Often, when many businesses fail it is generally attributable
to the third. This is where I can help you to build closer, better and
healthier relationships with management, staff, clients and/or customers.
Depression and Anxiety
of the most difficult areas to work with. Over the years, I've come to
truly believe it is a multi-pronged, holistic and collaborative
approach that's most effective. I work closely with the doctors and
medical team, with YOU guiding me and taking the lead on your treatment and therapy.
helps you to breathe, take a step back, reflect, challenge, review and
revisit without judgement in a safe, supportive and trusted
environment. So whatever decision you make going forward will be
entirely measured and in your best interest.
I love working with people, teaching life skills and witnessing their
growth. I appreciate how difficult it can be to ask for help,
particularly if you're the one usually being relied upon by others, but
you're not alone. Life truly does not need to be this hard so let's work
together to change it.
