Although the adults whom I assist come with a wide range of presenting problems - such as sexual dysfunctions, mental health issues, relationship distress, and addictions, the underlying problem is that all are suffering emotionally and longing to feel understand and to acquire tools that will relieve their distress.
My focus is to help men and women understand that, although their suffering is triggered by the difficult problems in their lives currently, the intensity of their suffering comes from old feelings that they have organized their lives to avoid by way of psychological defenses that helped them to survive emotionally in the past but which are now causing them suffering. I help people learn to embrace and tolerate rather than to avoid their distressing feelings. As they do this, their symptoms and presenting problems resolve leaving them feeling happier and more at peace internally.
Having had years of my own personal therapy and 30 years of counselling experience, I have not only deep compassion for your emotional suffering but also the training, tools, and confidence to help you feel safe and understood and to assist you in genuine healing and growth. I am generally able to accommodate you within one week and invite you to contact me.
