The life script of a medical professional: why it predisposes us to burnout and what we can do about it.
Counselling is a collaborative confidential process. I will help you explore feelings, thoughts and behaviours so you can gain insight and learn to manage your life more effectively.
The Musician Healer
As a violinist and counsellor I recognize that musicians have their own set of unique challenges.
Therapy for Depression
Depression comes in many forms. You may be feeling sad, unhappy, irritable, hopeless. You may be saying things to yourself such as, “I’m a failure”, “Just get on with it” or “What’s the point?” Are you angry with yourself and everything around you? Are you self-critical, so much so that you lack enthusiasm, motivation, and self-esteem?
Therapy for Anxiety
Anxiety is normal. Most people are anxious from time to time. Though anxiety and stress can motivate people to change and grow, excessive anxiety can prevent one from living the life they want. Where does anxiety come from?
Men’s Issue Counselling
Traditionally, men are brought up to be strong and are encouraged to put up a wall around any sign of vulnerability. When men are unable to maintain this façade, they often feel bad, they shut down, and they hide their feelings. This can lead to defensive responses and anger.
I have a small couples counselling practice that I run alongside my individual practice. I work with a select few couples that have the motivation and desire to improve their relationship.
