Get the confidence to take control of your life

Counselling changes lives

There are different therapies that are all centred around the principle that the counsellor is not meant to tell you what to do but rather to help you uncover the root causes of the challenges you face and find ways to cope with your problems.

Counselling can enhance your strengths and give you the ability to deal with a vast number of issues, such as stress, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem or simply feeling stuck and unmotivated, due to various reasons, recent or past that affect your life and the life of you loved ones.

Counselling is done in a private, safe and confidential environment where talking with a specialist outside your family or business environment that can offer a new perspective.

There are specific rules that govern the handling of the information disclosed during the sessions.

Nobody is judged or criticised in order to promote real personal growth and change.

My approach

"Transactional Analysis (Berne, 1910-1970) is a theory of personality and a systematic psychotherapy for personal growth and personal changeā€ (Stewart & Joines, 1997).

TA is the main theory supporting my therapeutic approach and it is recognised as a modern form of psychology that incorporates elements of humanistic, person centred, integrative, psychodynamic therapies into a very versatile therapy that can help on a vast range of issues and problems.

TA therapy is based on the theory that each person has three ego states (Parent, Adult and Child) that influence how people function, express themselves and interact with others.

TA is a talking therapy where sessions are used to explore your personality and how your experiences, especially in childhood, shaped it.

In individual counselling sessions, you and I would work directly in the "here and now" , addressing and solving problematic behaviours, helping you to find solution with the ultimate goal to ensure you regain control of your life.

In couple counselling sessions, we would work together on how to improve communication between you as two people within a relationship, identify and resolve issues that affect your intimate relationship, such as family pressure, work commitments and so on.
If the other partner is reluctant to engage in couple counselling, we can begin to work on your own and eventually find that your partner wants to join you after you have had some initial sessions.

TA is used in treatment of all types of psychological disorders, from everyday living problems to severe psychosis.

I combine TA with the Re-decision therapy (Goulding & Goulding, 1917-1992) in a hybrid of Gestalt and TA that helps clients achieve a change in emotions and behaviours that counteract old decisions.

I use a variety of tools and creative techniques to help you to improve your life and to live it more fully.
