Hi! I’m Mollie- a psychologist (Evenings and Saturdays) with a passion for helping ages 16+ build brighter, more fulfilling lives. Working with teens & young adults since 2017 I witnessed the unique challenges this phase of life brings. My experiences solidified my belief in the power of connection and importance of a safe, supportive space for growth. I understand that seeking therapy can be a big step, and my approach is rooted in empathy, understanding and collaboration. I feel that telehealth provides an environment where clients feel more at ease, making it easier to open up and connect.

I work exclusively with adolescents and young adults seeking medium/longer-term psychotherapy. Working consistently over time allows us to create a safe space to openly explore who they are, why they feel the way they feel (and do what they do) to pinpoint what they truly need to thrive; and I'll be there for support and guidance as this self-knowledge translates into meaningful real-world choices. My style is conversational, collaborative and down-to-earth - we are in it together and our sessions are real, present and genuine time together.

My therapeutic approach is tailored to the young person and adult, informed by trauma informed care, gender affirming practices, attachment focused and client centred principles. I believe that clients are the experts in their own lives and that connection and trust is paramount in the therapist and client relationship. Underpinning all of my work is a person centred and strengths-based approach, where counselling can happen within the context of a safe, supportive and respectful therapeutic relationship.
