Clytie is a Christian counsellor who has worked in both Christian and non-christian settings, with experience working with a diverse range of people working through mild to significant life stressors. Clytie uses a multi-theoretical approach to counselling using a mix of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), systems theory, solution focused therapy and strengths based therapy. Clytie recognises the hope that we have in Jesus can be the greatest source of strength in times of struggles.
“I do not see clients as “people to be fixed,” but rather people who are hurting, struggle to regulate, discern their emotions and/or need spiritual guidance.
Everyone has experiences times of distress and this is an aspect of life.
I believe it is my role to help clients gain the skills or perspective they need to cope with their situations.”
