    What are three strengths you have as a Psychologist/Counsellor?

    My three strengths as a Psychologist start with my process of assessing, diagnosing and then treating any presenting issue that a client brings to the session. I believe I approach my counselling from the Rogerian position of providing a non-judgemental, safe environment, in which the client is provided with unconditional positive regard. This extends into my work with couples.

    Helping individuals to enhance their communication and trust, and thereby heal rifts which have been created in the trust in their relationship, is a focus of my couples work.

    I work at restoring and enhancing goodwill between the individuals who present, and then sharing techniques to ensure that their dynamic is one which resolves future based disturbances to the relationship’s equilibrium.

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

    I remain humbled after 26 years of counselling experience, at being invited into the lives of my clients. I see myself as a catalyst in their process of change, and the most satisfying part of my work, whether it be with individuals or couples, is seeing them resolve areas of pain in the lives. Being able to see these courageous individuals untie their psychological ’knots’ remains a privilege I appreciate daily.
