Philosophy Statement

In my practice, counselling is a collaborative process that empowers individuals to connect to and understand self. In the midst of life challenges, individuals often do not realise that they have existing coping skills.

Collaborative counselling enhances existing coping skills, leading to increased confidence to cope and manage life challenges. Service provision is tailored to each individual in context of presenting life challenges.

Throughout the counselling process individuals understand that it is possible to learn to live with life challenges, past and present, differently over time. Collaborative counselling promotes independence by developing sustainable coping and management strategies applicable in all life circumstances.
