    About Adrienne

    Adrienne believes that awareness leads to choice. She knows that choice leads to freedom and liberation.

    Adrienne 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. Adrienne supervises many other health clinicians and her knowledge and wisdom assists her supervisees to integrate their work and life in profound and unique ways. Adrienne 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”.

    She 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.

    Adrienne’s 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. Adrienne’s 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.

    Adrienne is committed to working with her clients to become more self-aware so that 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.

    She has trained extensively in Relationship and Family Therapy.

    How many years counselling experience do you have?

    Over 35 years.

    What are three strengths you have as a Psychologist/Counsellor?
    1. An ability to truly listen to the spoken and unspoken
    2. Accurate mental and feeling empathy
    3. Ability to establish rapport with a diverse clientele

    A great counsellor is someone who is empathetic, creative and truly cares about others… cares about empowering others.

    What is the most satisfying and fulfilling part of the work you do?

    The process of integrating effective counselling strategies by skilfully developing the therapeutic alliance, inspiring hope, quickly focusing on achievable objectives, carefully selecting evidence-based practices, optimizing homework growth opportunities, and encouraging the treatment process and follow-up which then supports changes that can be maintained long after termination. This process to is both challenging and fulfilling.

    What’s an example of a couple you have helped the most?

    I have assisted many couples. Recently I worked with a young couple where the wife was attracted to a more exciting and positive man. She was disappointed in her husband of 10 years. He seemed to have very little ambition and was depressed. She was angry. Neither were listening to each other. He was hurt by her emotional betrayal. I saw them together and separately.

    They learned to listen share and acknowledge each other. He was traumatised by her actions. I worked with the trauma. I taught them how to manage their moods how to listen with empathy and how to turn towards each other more positively. They changed their relationship and reconnected and even had intimacy after shunning it for 8 years.
