Who am I?

In my practice as a counsellor I am continuously fascinated by the basic skill of active listening. I strive to provide others the opportunity to be heard through an eclectic approach founded on a strong Rogerian basis. As a counsellor I prioritise working with the client’s pace through a genuine relationship based on trust, care and respect, towards providing a secure space for one to reflect, share and process personal difficulties, thoughts and emotions. During my Master’s Degree in Counselling I specialised my studies in Community counselling. I distributed my practicum hours in different fields to elicit a range of experience. I was privileged to work with adolescents, adults and children who have experienced domestic violence, inmates, and other walk in clients whose issues ranged from bereavement, dealing with change, depression and familial concerns. Presently, I have been working for the past six years as a counsellor within a government college; adding schoolchildren, parents/guardians and members of staff to my repertoire of experience. In said role, I work together with the college’s psychosocial team of professionals through consultation with the sole goal of planning and providing the most effective way forward for each of our students and their families. When not at work I occupy most of my time with reading, writing and spending good quality time within the company of cherished family and friends.
