The essence of my therapy is in building solid, safe relationships collaboratively with my clients, catering to the unique needs of each person in a non-judgmental way. Rather than tell someone what they need, I prefer a merging of minds to make meaningful and sustainable differences. Together we explore resources to overcome adversity and suffering whilst learning to accept and adapt to the complicated facets of life where required. My therapeutic approach is also rooted in a deep exploration of early life experiences, with a focus on understanding and facilitating the healing of trauma or patterned behaviour.
I draw from integrative approaches such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Somatic Experiencing, Trauma Informed Therapy, and other relevant models. My approach caters to clients with stress, anxiety, depression, relationship disturbances, self-esteem issues, the impact of abuse, trauma, grief and loss, addiction, and other presenting problems.
I believe that people know themselves best and aim to nurture one's autonomy and agency. The creation of self-advocacy allows people to choose how they live, incorporating deep reflective thinking and emotional regulation so they can feel, think, and respond appropriately to life. I invite you to reach out if you need companioning in in your life.

I use a trauma-informed approach which provides a structure of safety, stabilisation, and resources. Once trust and an initial foundation are acquired, I like to focus on personal attributes, values, and virtues to guide the sessions. We may need to understand life patterns formed in childhood to expose current forms of thinking and behaviour. We achieved this through gentle exploration in time.
