Psychology has been my ideal focus since I can remember. I love learning about the human mind and behaviour. I love understanding. I love being able to see things through a variety of lenses and I love finding solutions, I also love people and I wanted to be in a position to help people who are going through difficult times.
I started effective therapy, a counselling practice in 2014.

It is not unusual for people to be scared about seeking counselling:
People’s culture or upbringing tells them that they should be able to handle their problems on their own, or that talking to a counsellor is shameful, however, counsellors can help you learn new skills and give you the tools to cope with your problems. They can also help you find the resources and services you may not realise that you need.
Some feel that their issues need to be earth-shattering to justify professional help but people can talk to counsellors and professional therapists for many different reasons:
Using personal strengths and attributes in a variety of situations
Identifying problem areas and factors that attribute to difficulties and dissatisfaction
Learning what thoughts and behaviors attribute to and maintain problems and how to change them
Improving stress-management skills
Building self-confidence and self-esteem
Enhancing the quality of relationships
Making better decisions
Leading a more satisfying and fulfilling life
Many also fear that going for therapy means they will be seen as part of a stereotyped group. Negative attitudes create prejudice which leads to negative actions and discrimination.
By creating awareness that counselling is not only for the mentally ill, and teaching people that everyone can benefit from counselling, we can reduce the stigma attached to it
