About

Ultimately I am human like you with a story and life experiences like you. However, as a doctor of Counselling Psychology I can offer you support at this time with: anger, anxiety (general, health, panic, specific phobia, social), attachment, bereavement, complicated grief, CPTSD, depression, impact of cancer, life transitions, low self-esteem, managing emotions, neurodevelopment (ASD, ADHD, FAS), personality disorders (BPD), PTSD, relationship problems, self-harm, self-identity, stress management, substance abuse (alcohol, illicit, prescribed), suicidal thoughts, trauma (combat, emotional, physical, sexual).
I provide a tailored therapy for each person I work with that is designed uniquely for you, known as an integrative approach. As a Counselling Psychologist I work in a client-centred way holding humanistic values and integrate various skills and techniques from a range of psychotherapies including: CBT, ACT, DBT, CFT, EMDR, Schema therapy, and mindfulness.
Having lived life like you, experiencing various up and downs, I've navigated through various losses and traumas with support. I can offer you that specialised support and an individualised treatment plan to help you get to where you want to get to.
