About

Stephanie is a registered clinical psychologist who specialises in working with adolescents and adults with emotional difficulties. Her therapeutic focus is to create a safe space to allow people to think about their emotional experience as well as better understand themselves and reasons that they might feel lost, unfulfilled, anxious or unhappy. She works with people with chronic emptiness, overwhelming emotions or emotional instability. Furthermore, she has an interest in people who have had a sibling or parent with a chronic health issue or disability, perfectionistic traits, procrastination as well as trauma and grief and loss.
Her therapeutic approach has a strong relational focus and collaborative approach where she works together with her client to work out what is needed to help them to cope with their feelings and move forward in their life. She also has a strong focus on helping people to develop a kinder internal voice and relationship to the self.
She uses evidence based therapies including self-compassion therapy, psychodynamic therapy, mindfulness therapy, cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) and dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT). Her goal is to help people to feel empowered to live a fulfilling life while being able to bear difficult emotions and experiences along the way.
