Therapies used within her services are:
- Solution-Focused Therapy
Solution-Focused counselling is designed to be brief and is based on four stages of therapy; awareness and education, developing and implementing strategies for change, emphasizing the positive, and rehearsal of newly learned skills.
In session, I like to participate and interact with the client; not just sit back, ask questions, and take notes. My intention is to engage so we can creatively brain storm together and develop practical solutions that you can immediately apply after each session. Whether we are engaged in individual or family counselling, I see you and I as a team strategising on how best to improve and optimize the specific challenges you or your child have. My goal is that every session can provide solutions and the potential for change.
