Helping Hand

Get to Know Me

As a paramedic for over ten years it became clear that working with people was important, as I enjoyed the opportunity to gain insight and a deeper meaning of each individuals' goals and story.  As a paramedic I found It was the small things that seemed to make the biggest difference in peoples days.  While we often met people on some of their worst days a kind word, smile of comfort or an open ear could ease the stress of a major life event.

After completing my masters in counselling psychology I now have the knowledge and ability to do this in a much broader sense.  While comforting people and helping them to understand their own needs has always been an interest it can now be my profession.  I work through an existential, psychoanalytic, Gestalt perspective which means that I will treat each client individually - we will work together to find the right solution for you in your unique circumstances.  When it comes to mental health there is no one size fits all approach and it is important to find the right counsellor for you.  Which is why I offer a free 15 minute consultation to make sure that  you feel comfortable with me.  This is the foundation of a successful counselling relationship.

I am sorry you are suffering right now, but it is important to acknowledge that you have taken the first step by searching for help.  This is a big and important first step.  Now it is time to take the second step - call or e-mail for your free consultation.
