I have developed a wide set of skills, to successfully attend to your needs and to prevent the situations that trigger restlessness and anxiety. These are just a few of the situations I can help you with:
The value of First Step Counselling is to walk alongside my clients in a manner which shows Integrity, Excellence, Honesty and Respect.
A person’s past does not define them, it is the foundation on which a unique and amazing future can be built.
I take the privilege of walking alongside my clients very seriously. Life can be hard and full of uncertainties and challenges. However, I believe every person has the answers to their own situations within them and my position in the process is to assist them to uncover those answers.
Interactions will be appropriate for my clients to deliver the most individualized and personalized interventions. I will provide high quality support with care and compassion. Only through trust, and belief in the strength of the human spirit and honest communication can a client begin to feel empowered enough to move ahead in healthy and resilient ways.
I will aim for person-centred; trauma-informed care, by continually developing my skills and knowledge through relevant training to improve the quality my service.
First Step Counselling will always respect cultural, racial, religious, gender and other diversities. I believe every person is unique and has his or her own individual and cultural values. My mission is to provide a counselling service to all persons from all backgrounds and socio-economic context, regardless of age, life stage or situation.
4-6 sessions with Cathy and I rate her 5/5 for empathy, compassion and non judgemental attitude. I would use First Step Counselling again if the need arose and refer my friends and family. Thank you Cathy for your insight and compassion during my counselling sessions. You helped me to see some things differently than I was and that really helped me. Thank you.
