Counselling can be so helpful in resolving emotional distress no matter the cause.
Dianne has been practising as an integrative counsellor since 2003 developing an approach that helps with depression, anxiety problems, relationship difficulties, aftermath of trauma, work stress, bereavement and more.
Originally trained in Person-Centred counselling and subsequent training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing), Dianne is equipped with the skills to deal quickly with whatever you wish to work on.
Dianne has an active interest in Mindfulness as a preventative strategy useful in recurring depression. She aims to make efficient use of your time working together, and depending on the nature of the problem between 6 and 15 sessions might be needed, sometimes less.
The initial session will be an assessment where she will look at the best way forward for you.
