Hi, I'm Charmaine.

I’m Charmaine and I’m here to listen.

You are allowed to be both a masterpiece

and a work in progress, simultaneously.”

― Sophia Bush

I have recently just graduated from my Post-Graduate Diploma in Counselling Psychology and am currently furthering my studies in my Masters’ of Counselling under ECTA. 

Throughout my journey, I have been lucky enough to have worked with my clients; all of whom have inspired me to continue doing this work and become a better human being to support other human beings!

 

My approach to counselling is an eclectic approach that encompasses the past, present and future. I firmly believe that a lot of our past influences our present motivations and behaviours, and my goal is to empower my clients to face what is in their present and work towards a future that feels right for them. Some of the approaches and techniques I draw upon in session include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Person-Centred Therapy (PCT). I am also really keen in learning more about Psychodynamic Therapy and Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT). 

 

If it’s your first time trying and entering into therapy, I understand how nerve-racking it can be. I also believe in finding the right fit; and sometimes it doesn’t always work out–and that’s okay. I encourage you to go into therapy with an open heart and mind, and feel free to ask me any questions along the way.

I can work with you to:

 

  • Learn to manage intrusive thoughts and worries.

  • Work on becoming more in tune with your emotions and building self-awareness.

  • Overcome self-sabotaging behaviours. 

  • Learn to manage big emotions and self-regulate.

  • Heal from guilt and shame.

  • Grow as a unique individual and build self-esteem. 

  • Explore and move towards a meaningful life based on core values. 

  • Break down and manage relational/attachment issues and work on communication barriers with loved ones. 

Interests

 

I have particular interests in supporting people with attachment wounds and those who have experienced childhood trauma to move towards healing and empowerment.
