She continues to refine and update her toolbox by attending courses and workshops regularly. She holds her ASIST- Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training.
She views counselling and psychotherapy as a supportive relationship that focuses on helping to discover the personal changes one might make in their life experience; she offers support with resolving issues and can lead towards healing. She describes her approach as being integrative, that is, it incorporates several approaches depending on the demand and need for consultation; cognitive, systemic, humanistic, psychodrama - role play. In short, she wishes to offer you a safe and strictly confidential space where you can obtain an accompaniment that will facilitate the achievement of your objectives and the process of self-discovery.
