In a counselling session with Andrea, you can expect:
A warm, welcoming environment
Confidentiality and a safe space to share
Professionalism and competence
A person-centred approach where your goals are the priority
Andrea utilizes a person-centred approach in therapy while also drawing from numerous clinical methods, including cognitive-behavioural, narrative, solution-focused, emotion-focused, and mindfulness-based therapy. She has supported clients with a wide range of concerns, including anxiety, depression, self-harm, trauma and PTSD, anger management, family and relationship challenges, and substance use/addiction.
