Perhaps there is a specific issue you would like to look at, or maybe an underlying feeling of something not being quite right? You may feel that you are at a point in your life where you would like to make some changes, or perhaps you would like a safe space to explore a little? There are no right or wrong reasons for seeking counselling…In my practice, I believe in a non-directive approach to counselling, based on my firm belief that you as a client, are the best expert on your own life and situation. During counselling, I will aim to hear you completely and carefully and with acceptance. I value diversity, and will endeavour to respect your values, choices, culture. I seek to provide a safe and facilitative therapeutic relationship, within which you feel unconditionally accepted and deeply understood. My own experience as both a client and a therapist has shown me that when people are met in this way, they will find within them the ability to move through difficulty and find their own way forward. I will endeavour to be alongside you whatever you wish to explore.
Therapist of the Month!Hi! Thanks for stopping by. My name is Tammie and I'm a fully credentialed social worker in a thriving private practice. I specialize in the treatment of children, adolescents and families. I use a family centered approach which often leads to treatment of adults as well. What draws families to me is my unique approach to therapy. I treat my clients with an evidence based trauma therapy approach called ACES/TIR (Adverse Childhood Experience/Trauma Incident Reduction). This approach combined with Narrative Therapy helps my clients gain insight and make significant progress in a short period of time.

Jess believes the therapeutic process is collaborative between the therapist and client.
