As a fully qualified and experienced Counsellor in Tokai, I work in an impartial way with people who are trying to overcome stumbling blocks in their lives or who may be trying to come to terms with or want to make life changes.
The successes I have seen in Counselling in part have come from a relaxed, controlled and private environment, where one can examine where they are at currently and explore with a professional person, ways of resolving their problems. Where appropriate I also work in a 'coaching' role, this is particularly successful with couples and looks at ways people can improve their lives in the future.
The majority of my work is done in a cost effective 'short term solution-focused' method which can achieve fairly rapid results. If mediation is needed that can be incorporated into the sessions.
Prior to establishing my private practice I worked as a Counsellor at The Trauma Centre in Woodstock and formed part of the UCT Counselling Team, handling the Xenophobic attacks in Cape Town in 2008.
