Pam is a qualified and empathetic integrative counsellor who draws upon the Person-Centred Approach (PCA) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Pam is dedicated to helping individuals navigate their challenges, discover their strengths, and achieve emotional well-being. Her compassionate and non-judgmental approach creates a safe space for clients to explore their thoughts, feelings, and concerns.
Approach: Pam believes that every individual is unique and requires an individualised approach to therapy. By integrating principles and techniques from Person-Centred Approach (PCA) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), she creates a customised treatment plan tailored to her client’s specific needs and preferences. Pamela recognises the importance of building a genuine and trusting therapeutic relationship, allowing clients to feel heard, supported, and empowered.
Person-Centred Approach (PCA): At the core of Pamela’s practice is the Person-Centred Approach (PCA). With a deep respect for each client’s inherent capacity for growth and self-healing, Pamela fosters a warm and accepting environment. Through active listening, empathy, and unconditional positive regard, she collaborates with clients to explore their experiences, enhance self-awareness, and promote personal growth.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT): In addition to PCA, Pamela incorporates techniques from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) into her practice. CBT focuses on the interplay between thoughts, emotions, and behaviours. By identifying negative or unhelpful thought patterns, Pamela helps clients develop more adaptive and constructive thinking styles. CBT empowers clients to make lasting changes and improve their emotional well-being through practical exercises and collaborative goal-setting.
Areas of Experience: Pam has wide-ranging experience. However, her primary clinical interests include:
- Anxiety disorders, such as generalised anxiety, social anxiety, and panic disorder

Approach to Sessions: During sessions, Pam creates a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental space for clients to express themselves openly. She values the therapeutic relationship built on trust, empathy, and collaboration. Together, Pam and her clients explore their challenges, gain insights into their experiences, and develop practical strategies to overcome obstacles and achieve personal growth.
