Psychologist / Team Leader PCI
I approach my work in a person centred way – listening carefully and intentionally to an individual’s story and how life has brought him or her to a particular place where support is needed to cope with a particular issue. The personal attributes that I bring to therapy are my compassion and analytical thinking which, combined with my professional training and skills in CBT, ACT, psychodynamic and Biblical Narrative therapy, enable me to work holistically with clients to meet their goals in counselling. Apart from my professional qualifications, I bring my own life experience and endeavour to be authentically and fully alive, into the counselling experience with my clients.
Why do I choose to work for PCI? I believe that there is so much more than the physical and psychological experience of being human. The spiritual component and how that relates to our daily experience, whether in the mundane or crisis, is often neglected. Through PCI, the exploration of this aspect of a person’s wellbeing is encouraged, regardless of the particular faith base through which this is expressed. Furthermore, at PCI we emphasise the context of the individual – no-one comes to a particular place in their lives without the influence of others, nor do they live without impacting others around them. Respecting this dynamic interplay and working with people in community is challenging and full of opportunity.
I provide counselling on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
