Is your mental health impacting you at home or at work? I am here to help. In my therapy work, I hear that my clients are seeking: practical tools and techniques; improvement in their mood; techniques to manage stress and anxiety; freedom from negative mindsets; and a Psychologist who can support them to manage their mental health challenges both at home and at work. In short, they are seeking to return to good mental health, and to thrive in both their personal and professional lives. My experience working as a Psychologist, HR professional, and a Leader enables me to support people to be their best both at home and at work.

My interest ranges within various mental health issues, including those mood-related, such as depression and anxiety, and those associated with personality disorders, particularly Borderline and Narcissistic presentations. I encourage my clients to build a collaborative therapeutic relationship, where the client has the central role, and my role is to help them create a life worth living. This process often includes identifying family dynamics/early experiences that lead to unhelpful beliefs and patterns of behavior, accepting what cannot be changed and embracing the process of making changes to commit to a more meaningful life.

I am super passionate about my work as a Counsellor after many years of working in the corporate world left me searching for a more fulfilling and meaningful career. I find that so many of my clients echo this search – in addition to wanting to address their day-to-day life struggles – they are searching for something more. And this is where I love to be, fully attentive, empathising with my clients but most of all working alongside them to explore ways of improving all aspects of their lives, be that work, relationships, childhood attachment wounds or trauma.

Often in today's world, we get caught up in so many distractions on the outside that we are not always aware of our internal experiences. We walk around anxious and depressed, with critical thoughts of ourselves and others, and often live a reality that is separate from our own personal wishes and desires. I believe that therapy provides a safe space to step away from all the external distractions and focus on identifying and responding to our emotional world in the most open and connected way, which may have been too painful to do in the past.

Have you suffered trauma in your past? Do you feel triggered and can't quite understand why? Excessive anger, paralyzing fear, feelings of emptiness, constant anxiety, sense of powerlessness, lingering sadness. They are most likely related to repressed feelings and they can leave a trail of unconscious destruction behind. What if you take charge? What if you decide it is time to finally bring those feelings to the surface and face them? That's called integration. It's when you get to know and eventually accept yourself. The fact you are reading this now shows you are ready to take that step. And I will be right there with you.

I work with people who are open to talking about their life and their journey, and are motivated to make a positive change, whether big or small. They could be seeing me for a broad spectrum of reasons; from something as simple as wanting a new face to talk to, to pursuing professional help for something they’ve been struggling with for a very long time. They are looking to feel heard and hopeful after a session—perhaps even excited to try new strategies that might be able to help them in their daily life. They understand that therapy isn’t a fix-all, but rather a process that could facilitate change
