In Her Own Words
As a one-on-one counsellor and group facilitator, I seek to create an open, inviting and safe space in which stories can be explored, and your preferred story developed.
When people opt to sit down with me and share their stories, they may feel that they’re placing themselves in a risky or exposed situation. I appreciate this. I intentionally chose training in Narrative Therapy practices because they are collaborative and respect the storyteller as the expert in their own story.
I believe when people make the decision to seek counselling, they are choosing a new beginning for their lives and are open to exploring possibilities as yet unrevealed. It can be a very exciting moment. As a counsellor, I am grateful to be engaged with you in a time of discovery.
