How I Work

I facilitate conversations where individual clients or couples get the opportunity to understand why some cycles of effort to get liberated from emotional challenges do not work, and even worse, why their efforts sometimes aggravate the situation. Through a process of committed action clients may become more emotionally aware of their own processes which could enhance intentional living with more meaning despite challenges.
I know from experience that certain Christian clients prefer to see only a Christian psychologist. As I am a Christian I would gladly assist them.

My experience

I have been working with teenagers and adults in and out of my private practice in a wide variety of contexts such as Sport Codes, High Schools, Universities, Rehabilitation Centres, Clinics and Corporate institutions.

I facilitate processes with individuals, couples and groups on a wide variety of issues such as
Anxiety
Feeling down or Depressed
Family problems
Work problems
