One of my clients said that prior to coming to counselling she'd feared that the experience of therapy would be "like turning the room completely upside down." She instead found it to be "like finally turning the lights on in a room that had been dark."
I know that it takes courage to seek therapy. It means acknowledging (to ourselves and another) that something in our lives is not as we'd like it to be, and committing to the work of letting ourselves see, feel, and start to heal those parts of our lives we are no longer willing or able to keep dark.
The joy in my work comes from helping people 'turn the lights on,' and witnessing what happens when they do.
I have a Master's Degree in Counselling Psychology and have been working as a therapist since 1995. My commitment is to helping clients move towards greater clarity, authenticity, and connection to self and others.
Here are just some of the reasons someone might wish to seek help:
- Feeling stuck of dissatisfied; feeling that you're living "a life of quiet desperation"
- Depression or other mood disorders
- Chronic anxiety, stress, or worry
- Feeling out of control with food, substances, or behaviour
- Wanting increased capacity for connection with others
- Relationship disconnect
- Noticing self-defeating patterns repeating in your life
