“So much of the meaning and purpose in my life, comes from helping people like yourself navigate difficult times, and empowering you to live a life with vitality. It is a precious thing to be trusted with the stories of my clients and I believe it’s so important to provide a safe, nurturing therapeutic space to empower you to create meaningful change. When you work with me, we are in this together. I know the best results come from working collaboratively with you to ensure your experience in therapy is personalised to what you want for your life. I'm looking forward to getting to know you!"
I have a special interest in working with adolescents and adults experiencing anxiety, imposter syndrome, depression, chronic health issues, grief and loss, life transitions (e.g. career, stage of life, migration), PTSD, OCD, tics and Tourettes. I am passionate about helping individuals live a life worth living based on their values. Some populations I particularly enjoy working with include people of colour, gifted individuals, young women, and creatives. In addition to providing individual therapy, I have a keen interest in cognitive assessments to identify gifted abilities or learning disabilities.
My approach is based on recognition of your uniqueness. We can work together to identify what is important for YOU. There may be issues you wish to resolve, changes you want to make, or just the opportunity to share your worries and anxieties in a safe and accepting space. Embarking on a counselling journey may present challenges, that's true, yet it may also be enlightening, rewarding and provide a sense of hope and courage. Whatever you wish to explore, understand or find solutions for, we can find strategies, pathways and hope for the future.
We all go through tough and challenging times. Perhaps this is the first time you've struggled mentally or emotionally and your feeling overwhelmed, stressed and under resourced to know what to do. Maybe you haven't bounce back as well as you hoped. Perhaps your previous style of coping and managing is no longer working. Whether you are grieving, having difficulty in relationship or navigating change, I can help. What you need is somewhere to work through all these feelings, experiences, and new realities. A space to speak your truth, build new skills, express your feelings and reconnect with yourself, your desires and goals.
“Thank you for wanting to build a relationship with one of our psychologists. If you've been searching for a space where you can feel comfortable, loved and seen for the real you - we will be perfect for each other. At our practice every thought is given to your experience and your unique journey. Our time together will be grounded in meaning, purpose and your evolution. Over the years, we have built strong relationships with our clients, and developed a cutting-edge practice based on the reputation of our work. Personal growth and human optimisation is our healthy(ish) obsession!" - Principal Psychologist Charlene Neuhoff
Whether you are seeking counselling/therapy for the first time, or you are a veteran on this journey, I welcome you, all of you, with an open mind and open heart. Often making the decision to seek support is a crucial step towards healing and sustainable change.
“I’d love to help you develop a supportive, kind and caring relationship with yourself, and secure and fulfilling relationships with others. Working with you to understand why you respond to the world like you do, what really matters to you, and supporting behaviour that back up your ambitions is my jam. We all face challenges in how we relate to ourselves and the world. I believe developing a sense of psychological safety and flexibility, and nurturing emotional intelligence and agility are key to recovering, striving and thriving in all parts of your life”
“I am so looking forward to getting to know you as a unique individual, and working together to create the life you wish for. I believe that creating sustainable change is only possible when working with people holistically. I have always cringed at traditional, clinical styles of therapy, so instead I am committed to treating you as a real person and working together to help you live your best life. I love it when people take a proactive approach to their mental health. There isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t appreciate how much of a privilege it is to get to know my clients and work together with them in a meaningful way"
