I have always been on a quest to better understand humans and it was with this interest (on the background of life throwing me some rather 'challenging' curved balls) that my desire to better understand human behaviour drove me to study clinical social work and later various psychotherapies. However balancing out my personal lived experiences combined with a sound theoretical understanding of the complexity of 'being human' certainly equipped me with the required professional and ethical skills to 'companion' the journey of other women who are struggling as well.

Armed with what I know didn't resonate (or work) with my clients which included various modalities that clients continually told me were unhelpful , I sought to learn about other approaches and techniques, ones that could offer my clients something different. Ones that I knew that impacted me in a profound way and ones that I felt a yearning to share with clients. Truthfully I just knew I had a mission in the world to share what I knew.... 

I CHOOSE HAPPY offers a unique and creative, non-clinical space to help you step away from the sense of discomfort you are experiencing to one of embracing your own 'spark of light'. My mission is to support you to live comfortably in your own skin, not do everything you can to escape from it.​​.......

My approach to counselling is a-likened to walking down a corridor where there are various doors to either side. My approach is invitational, you are invited to decide which doors you would like to open to explore in addressing your personal goals and desired changes. And together we can do that via a range of approaches that include-

Emotional Freedom Technique (E.F.T)
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprogramming (E.M.D.R).
Mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
Art Therapy
Narrative Therapy
Family Therapy
Transactional Analysis
Sandtray and Symbol work
Expressive Therapies
