About Synergy

I am the principal therapist at Synergy Counselling Services. I pride myself on basing my counselling practice on developing a deep rapport with individuals in order to develop insightfulness, self-awareness and compassion for their complex feelings, emotions and individual stories. This helps those I work with make lasting, positive and healthy changes in their lives.

I am fully committed to my ongoing professional development in terms of in-depth training and education so as to utilise a variety of therapeutic interventions, modalities, and theoretical orientations to support positive and long-lasting change.
I will take the time to understand your individual needs and concerns and use the most appropriate counselling methods to help clients achieve a greater level of wellbeing. All sessions are strictly confidential.

People seek therapy in order to acquire skills/knowledge and strategies to better manage their issues and gain a greater sense of well-being. I am experienced in working with individuals, children and adolescents dealing with a variety of issues.
