If you're reading this profile, you may be ready for a shift in your life.
I work with individuals and couples for short or long term therapy, depending on the clients needs.
Together, we can foster a tranquil, secure, and calming sanctuary for judgement-free self-exploration. It's such a safe space that often paves the way to a heightened clarity and self-awareness for those I work with.
Trauma can often cause individuals to perceive themselves as 'broken'. My role is to guide you on the journey towards healing those fragmented pieces, offering a space where your experiences can be acknowledged, facilitating a movement towards a sense of unity and completeness.
In the course of our collaboration, many clients discover facets of themselves they may have never known before, gaining a newfound sense of control as the therapy journey unfolds.
I'm here to alleviate your worries and anxieties, to cultivate self-compassion, and to equip you with problem-solving skills that will serve you for a lifetime, enabling you to become your own best problem-solver.
In my practice, I place a significant emphasis on trauma-informed work, compassion, person-centred, and psychodynamic approaches. I am deeply committed to helping individuals who wish to work within, to gain a deeper understanding of themselves, and to feel acknowledged, heard, and empowered.
In my practice, I fuse an array of counselling skills, psychotherapy techniques, and hypnotherapy, thus employing a truly integrative approach.
The theoretical underpinnings of my approach are sourced from various disciplines and techniques, including but not limited to; Attachment Theory, Person-Centred approach, Polyvagal theory, Gestalt, Psychodynamic, Psychoanalysis, Ericksonian Hypnotherapy, Mindfulness, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Parts Therapy (IFS), EMDR, Flash Technique and more.
I hold a great interest in my work and am a deep and considered thinker, drawing from many philosophies & psychotherapeutic models. I enjoy the client-therapist relationship and often see how it creates real, significant and lasting change.
