Having worked with adolescents, adults, and families of all ages and in different settings, I am keenly interested in dealing with issues such as anger management, school issues, addictions, anxiety, relationships issues and the Imposter syndrome.
To ensure the best services for our clients, we use tried and tested evidence-based therapies. Based on the issue faced by the client, we partake in therapies such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Family Systems Therapy, Solution-Focused (Brief) Therapy (SFBT) and Strengths Based Therapy.
