My approach to counselling focuses on helping you to identify what you wish to change about your thoughts, feelings and actions, and then assisting you to harness the resources you need to achieve these changes.
I do not see my role as being the ‘expert’ who ‘has all the answers’. Rather, I see my role as creating a place where you can work through to your own solutions and goals.
At times you may experience the counselling process as difficult or painful. It is at these times that I desire to hold your hope for your future. You will be encouraged to discuss and ask questions concerning the direction of counselling at any time.
As part of the counselling and supervision process I will at times explore options and share possible insights with you. At all times, however, you remain responsible for your own decisions. I will respect your right to make your own decisions concerning matters discussed in sessions. At all times I will seek to hold you in a supportive environment of hope in order that you might choose life, love and healing in ways that are important and of value to you as an individual.
It is my desire to create a supportive environment where you can find the courage and strength to Choose Life, Love, and Healing!
