Learning About and Nurturing your "Self"


"The most powerful relationship you will ever have is the relationship with yourself.”  -  Steve Maraboli

People come to see me for a variety of reasons.

Some are feeling overwhelmed by what’s currently happening in their life and are looking for help to deal with specific issues like: anxiety; depression; stress; despair; bereavement; lack of confidence; or relationship problems. Therapy can help them gain some perspective, provide support, teach skills and tools to help them cope more effectively.

Others come because they want to focus on personal growth. They are seeking guidance to become more self aware, to challenge entrenched negative beliefs, to stop destructive habits and to create more meaning and authenticity in their life.

Some of the benefits people get from therapy include:


  • Finding new ways of coping with stress, anxiety and burnout.

  • Managing anger more effectively.

  • Understanding and coping with depression.

  • Improving self-esteem, self-confidence, self-belief and self-image.

  • Developing skills for enhancing relationships.

  • Improving empathy, emotional intelligence and communications skills.  

  • Identifying unhelpful patterns and behaviours, replacing them with useful ones.

  • Attaining a better understanding of their personal beliefs, values and goals.


With a safe, supportive, caring environment, most people find therapy enables them to nurture the relationship they have with themselves and get to a better place in their lives.
