Trauma Informed Counselling

New appointments for one to one counselling are currently unavailable. I apologise for any inconvenience. 

Trauma Informed Counselling involves being in a therapeutic relationship with a trained and empathic therapist where you will be heard and your unique story will be honoured. As your Therapist we will clarify your story, enabling us to discover your truth. You may then move forward to fulfill your emotional, psychological, spiritual and physical needs. 

It is my strong belief that each of us has the ability to know our own self, better than anyone else. Some times we may fall victim to our self critic or past judgments made by others. We may also have lived a life on survival mode due to adverse life experiences.  I am trained in a number of psychotherapeutic modalities. Each of them may serve a different purpose in unlocking your inner wisdom and self healing possibilities. 

I successfully completed COVID-19 Training on 20th March 2020 to ensure your safety while under my care.

Image Making

Creative Arts Therapy is the relationship between the client and their inner world expressed in creative and symbolic ways when words are too difficult to find.
  • We keep our group numbers small to enable the representation of a positive family unit experience.

  • We have strong therapeutic bonds due to the safety boundaries that members have created as a group.

  • As a Trauma Counsellor and Art Therapist, I facilitate or run the group while providing emotional safety and opportunities for sharing and change. 

  • At the same time, group members are encouraged to discover personal strengths and mind, body, earth and relationship connections. 

  • This offers members a powerful influence on how I might meet their needs as a group and as individuals.

  • As a facilitator, I will offer many types of psychotherapeutic tools such as positive communication, inner critic awareness, understanding and managing triggers.

  • As personal strengths build and positive relationship with self and others develop, members practice what they have learned in group, in their every day lives.

Adult Creative Arts Therapy Continues to practice during COVID-19. Strict health policies apply.
