About

Clients present with difficult life circumstances, affecting them in the present or the past, rippling into the connection with themselves and their connection with the world, the persons in their life and social structures such as school or work. Low self esteem, fear, worry, sadness or anger are just some of the strong forces that effect people. Clients can feel overwhelmed or unsure about where to begin. I provide a safe, non-judgemental space that gently explores these forces, working towards self-directed goals to improve self connection, interpersonal relationships and the interplay with their surrounding social structures.
You can expect a trauma informed approach that is psychodynamic focused meaning that the core of our work is a relationship based on collaboration, choice, safety and trust that enables the exploration of emotional and mental processes, and social factors that might be restricting you from living your best life.
Making a decision to attend therapy can be hard. Committment, energy and finances are just some of the considerations clients often make before reaching out. If you're at a point in your life where you feel you need to start working on yourself or lifes circumstances, I invite you, start the conversation now. I can support and guide you through the process.
