Changes to Service as a Result of COVID 19

As a result of the COVID 19 pandemic, I have decided that counselling sessions will only be offered via telephone or video. Research has shown that online video counselling sessions can be very effective in terms of outcomes and client satisfaction. They are convenient as far as time , no need to commute to session, and some clients feel more comfortable in their home environments.

 

My video sessions use a secure encrypted video platform that is part of my practice management system, Janes App. The program is easy to access for clients and once you indicate an interest to work together, I will send you the link.

Individual Counselling 


In my private practice, I work with adults and youth ( 15 and18). My areas of interest and experience  include, but not restricted to: 

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Gender identity issues, Gender Dysphoria

  • Transgender issues including social and physical transition

  • LGBTQ2+

  • Grief and loss

  • Life transitions

  • Relationships

  • Trauma

FamilyTherapy

At times, the family system can come under pressure as a result of a number of issues including:

  • Stress and anxiety                                            

  • and relationship issues                        

  • Life transitions or career changes        

  • Trauma

  • Depression 

  • Child and adolescent issues

  • Marital 

  • Conflict resolution issues    

  • Grief and loss 

  • Gender and Sexuality

 

When families experience any of these issues, communication patterns within the family system can be negatively affected.

 

I use an integrated model in family counselling sessions, that is influenced by Family Systems Theory and  Attachment Theory.

Couples Therapy

The key to a great relationship is great communication and emotional security! 

 

Relationships can bring us much happiness, but sometimes issues can arise that negatively impact our relationships. All relationships have times of difficulty. Having issues in your relationship does not mean ‘the end’!  Conflict arises and communication becomes more difficult. Issues may include:

 

  • Communication

  • Stress

  • Boredom

  • Economics

  • Infidelity.

 

Counselling can provide an avenue to explore the sources of difficulty, or conflict, and identify pathways to solutions that can help couples move forward.
