This Hart therapist believes that awareness leads to choice. She knows that choice leads to freedom and liberation.
She is an established relationship expert and therapist in the field of trauma and recovery. She has a deep and extensive knowledge working with children, adolescents, couples and families experiencing a wide range of life challenges. She supervises many other health clinicians and her knowledge and wisdom assists her supervisees to integrate their work and life in profound and unique ways. She is an experienced clinician, lecturer and trainer, with more than 35 years’ experience. Her personal style is non-judgemental, warm, respectful, collaborative and “down to earth”.
This Hart therapist will guide you to the door that is locked within, and help you discover the key to unlock your potential in life. She will support you to unblock your fixed life patterns and beliefs, which often began during early childhood. She will help you to build new ways of being and communicating in the world.
Her mission is to help people turn the key, unlock the door and step through to new beginnings, exciting futures and amazing achievements as a person, couple, or as a family. Her warm, empathic style encourages a safe place where clients can share, reflect, become aware and choose to take charge of their life in more constructive, authentic and life-giving ways.
She is committed to supporting her clients in becoming more self-aware, so they may grasp what blocks them from moving forward in life. She leads her clients towards knowing themselves, owning themselves and transforming themselves. She will work creatively to help her clients discover who they “really are” and find meaning and purpose in their life. She encourages clients to face their challenges and live rewarding and fulfilling lives. She will help her clients meet their needs by drawing on many contemporary models of counselling: including Mindfulness, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Team CBT, Solution Focused Therapy and Psychosynthesis. She will teach you how to relax and connect to your inner self through Relaxation Strategies and Creative Visualisation Techniques.
