Currently, I work with students who have a variety of mental health concerns. I have been a counsellor in a secondary school for three years. Yet, I have had adult employment in the past. As a counsellor, my main goal is to provide a secure environment for my clients to openly lay out all of their issues on the table, no one judging them, time to explore them, come to an understanding of them, and then start working to manage the issues. The types of approaches I work off are CBT, psychodynamic and Person centred. If you require more information contact me via email:
