Counsellor / Psychotherapist / Clinical Supervisor
Delrene’s approach is integrative, which means that she draws from various counselling approaches in order to ensure that her clients are offered a treatment plan that is tailor-made to meet their individual needs. She works closely with each individual to identify areas of their lives that they would like to see changed. Delrene supports them to agree on goals and decide on a therapeutic plan to guide them on their journey to improved well-being.
“For most people, contacting a therapist for the first time can be really daunting. This may be because it’s the first time you have spoken to anybody about the difficulties you are experiencing and explained to someone else how these difficulties are making you feel. Somehow, talking about the problem can make it feel immediate and somehow more real. In my experience that first phone call, that first conversation can also leave you feeling relieved – you’ve shared the problem and are no longer on your own. You will find that I offer all of my clients a non-judgemental, safe, confidential space to explore the thoughts and feelings that have been causing them emotional pain, confusion or difficulty”.
