Counselling and Psychotherapy

'​The purpose of Psychotherapy is to set people free'                                    -Rollo May

Counselling and psychotherapy are umbrella terms that cover a range of talking therapies.

Counsellors and psychotherapists are trained professionals who will work with you over a period of time to help you develop a better understanding of yourself and of others.

Therapists are impartial. They will listen to you without judgement and work with your emotions without becoming emotional themselves. They won’t tell you what to do but will help you find your own solutions – whether for making effective changes or for learning how to cope.

It’s important to find a therapist and a way of working you’re comfortable with so you can feel at ease discussing personal and emotional issues.

“a person is a fluid process, not a fixed and static entity; a flowing river of change, not a block of solid material; a continually changing constellation of potentialities, not a fixed quantity of traits.” 

― Carl R. Rogers, On Becoming a Person: A Therapist's View of Psychotherapy

People come to therapy for many reasons .....


  • Where are you now and where do you want to be?

  • It is an experience in the process of being heard and exploring developing self awareness.

  • It is my belief that with the right environment and therapeutic conditions of acceptance, unconditional positive regard, trust, congruence and consistency that healing, self awareness and self-acceptance can occur, which can lead to powerful transformation and learning.

  • I believe very much that each person has within themselves the tools and resources to help themselves and I believe in each individuals' potential to find the answers they seek.


  • I believe wholly in the the healing power of the therapeutic relationship and through my own experience of being in therapy; how being seen and heard without agenda or conditions, can be grounding, illuminating and ultimately freeing leading to a truer sense of self and of one's own meaning and purpose of existence.


“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” 

― Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning

“As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is “AUTHENTICITY”.

As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody if I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me. Today I call it “RESPECT”.

As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow. Today I call it “MATURITY”.

As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm. Today I call it “SELF-CONFIDENCE”.

As I began to love myself I quit stealing my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm. Today I call it “SIMPLICITY”.

As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today I know it is “LOVE OF ONESELF”.

As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since I was wrong less of the time. Today I discovered that is “MODESTY”.

As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worrying about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where everything is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it “FULFILLMENT”.

As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But as I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this connection “WISDOM OF THE HEART”.

We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born. Today I know “THAT IS LIFE”!”

― Charlie Chaplin
