How can counselling/psychotherapy help?

Counselling or psychotherapy?

Counselling is usually more short-term and often has a specific goal and more defined focus. The longer you continue, the more you will identify patterns from the past, and how they influence you now.
Psychotherapy looks in depth at these underlying patterns and how they are affecting your present life.

Couple counselling

You may wish to come as a couple to work on problems you are having in your relationship. Counselling can help you understand the underlying problems as well as the more obvious difficulties. This understanding can help to reduce the power of past and present hurts and disappointments, and find more satisfying ways of being together.


My training is an integrative one, combining the humanistic and psychoanalytic schools of thought. From the humanistic or person-centered approach comes a belief that people will naturally grow towards health if given the right conditions; from the psychoanalytic approach comes a concern with human development and with the childhood patterns that affect us in the present.
