A HAPPIER, HEALTHIER YOU
Most people come to therapy when they cannot see how things can ever improve. Cannot find the light at the end of the tunnel?Individual therapy sessions help understand the reason for the feelings and develop the tools to change. Therapy empowers you to take control of the issues that make you feel out of control.
The hardest part of couples therapy is making sure both people feel heard.The pain of relationship crisis causes people to behave in ways that may be out of character.I have specialised in couples for over a decade. Couples work to solve current problems and change unhelpful thinking and behaviour. Therapy develops the couple to not only change relationships but also provide valuable tools to cope with obstacles.
HERE FOR YOU
Family Therapy allows everyone in the family to feel they have a voice. Putting the family together to find solutions to crisis and systems that do not work , sets up the opportunity for the family to calm down. Clients are coached on every step of the process to implement various methods that help them develop new attitudes/tools in the family.
A Bit About Therapy
In my private practice, effective psychotherapy methods develop self-understanding among clients to heal and create new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the client and therapist alike. Making small changes in self-defeating behaviour and in feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results.

QUALIFIED EXPERIENCED PSYCHOTHERAPIST
I have lived in South Africa,USA (trained and licensed) and in London since 2000. Starting out my career as a dietitian, I then qualified as a Licensed Psychotherapist specialising in systemic therapy with individuals, couples and families.
In 2000 my partner and I set up TheP4Group for working with the human side of business in corporate settings. Out of this sprung our intensive couples intervention program. Glenn Barruw -,Ph.D Behavioural Psychotherapist/Cognitive Behaviour Therapist- will work with the male/ or one of the couple, while I work with the female and then we work intensively through joint sessions.
I approach every person with the same passion. I see therapy as an opportunity to understand the jigsaw puzzle of your life. Learning what triggers you and why, how to change the repetitive patterns and behaviours, and learning about anger/depression/anxiety/or whatever it is that affects you and your life.
Having spent 10 years qualifying as a psychotherapist I am constantly updating my knowledge. I am a member of the BACP, NASW (USA), BDA.
