"I am collaborative, empathetic, understanding, and hopeful in my work with clients. I am interested in learning about new people and clients often comment that this shows. I am an eclectic in my practice, which means that I have training in many different forms of psychotherapy, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), ACT, and play therapy for children. The work we do together can be goal driven, where we focus on the issues you want to work on in therapy. This also means that our work together will be unique to you.
In an initial session, I would be interested in knowing what has brought you to counselling, get to know you, explore your strengths, talk about what hopes, goals, or possible outcomes you would like to see from our work together. I am interested in making counselling effective for you."
