My approach

My approach in treatment is usually hybrid blend of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and the person centered and integrative treatment approaches are used depending on your unique needs. I show empathy and respect, sensitivity, and compassion irrespective of culture, religion, gender, race, language or sexual orientation. I am a great listener and am easy to talk to.


My treatment plan will focus on your unique and specific needs. Try take the first brave step to overcome your struggle and get your life back and lets head towards a more healthier and happier life. This takes courage but my good experience, easy to talk to reputation, empathy and listening skills will quickly help support you in progress to recovery.

Why online counselling?

There are a lot of advantages to online counselling. For many of us, taking the leap to start therapy may be a little daunting. You might feel more comfortable having a video call from the comfort of your own home, or perhaps there aren’t enough hours in the days to visit a counsellor in person.


Some of the advantages include: accessibility, time and privacy. Click here to book an appointment with me.
