Counseling / Psychotherapy Services Offered
Psychotherapy enables us to have a deepened awareness of ourselves, our relationship patterns and the choices available to us in the present. Through a recreation of our past, it helps us to gain understanding and insight into the origins of our disturbing issues, be they emotional, psychological or relational. Increasing awareness along with a range of helpful strategies and techniques, in turn, can enable us to work through our difficulties.
Psychological issues are common and can benefit from professional help.

My work with couples and other relationships involves an exploration of the relationship issues and difficulties, including attitudes towards differences within the relationship. Other aspects of my work include exploration of needs and feelings, making unconscious beliefs and expectations conscious, paying attention to communication difficulties and providing training in healthier communication skills, conflict resolution, establishing greater understanding and empathy within the relationship, maintaining healthy boundaries.
