Simone Wiggishoff Northside Therapy Centre

I value helping individuals to understand and accept themselves and their needs and feelings, to learn to express these in helpful ways, and to develop the capacity to self-soothe when confronted with life's inevitable challenges and difficulties. With empathy and respect, and by means of a strong therapeutic relationship, I will help guide you to work deeply on your issues, to help facilitate lasting and meaningful change.

I will help you develop strategies for reducing and relieving symptoms of commonly presenting problems such as depression and anxiety. In this regard, cognitive-behavioural and mindfulness-based approaches are helpful in equipping you with strategies for soothing difficult feelings, as well as identifying and changing patterns of thinking that contribute to distress and problematic behaviours. I also welcome the opportunity to work with you on a deeper level to explore the role of unconscious processes, early family-of-origin experiences and other historical factors that have shaped you, and contributed to your current difficulties.
