GDip Counselling and Integrated Psychotherapy, GDip Psychology, AdvDip Counselling & Family Therapist
I'm a Christian Counsellor, relationship counsellor and family therapist with special interest in trauma treatment and family violence. I take more of an integrative approach to therapy, choosing the best approaches for the different needs of my clients.
My main approach is Emotionally Focused Therapy, which is looking at issues through the attachment lens. I believe we were created for connection and I like to look at most problems in terms our need to feel connected, loved and valued as a human being, including by ourselves.
I have also been involved in ministry since 2004 and have understanding of various issues in the church including burnouts and conflict. I would like to assist people adjust in their life in their faith community and deal with questions and struggles around their faith as well.
Apart from my formal trainings, I have training in trauma treatment, family violence and sexual assault, emotionally focused therapy for couples, and the Gottman Method for couples therapy.
