"Psychic pain can feel crippling; a destructive tyrannical force wreaking havoc on our inner and outer worlds. We each have a story of pain that asks to be heard until it is no longer capable of hurting us. On entering the world we quickly learn to mould ourselves to the beliefs, expectations and needs of others, particularly those on whom we depend for our basic survival. We lose sight of who we are in the midst of accommodating others. At some point, it becomes necessary to question our adopted narrative and learn how to write our own script."

Sometimes the harsh things we say to ourselves and our unconscious patterns can leave us trapped in a cycle of just coping with our suffering and trying to survive the day. Is the way you've learned to cope/survive keeping you stuck or moving you away from who you want to be and how you want to live? Learning to see yourself, your life, and your patterns clearly can create opportunities for healing, growth, and more meaningful relationships. "

"I provide an integrated approach to therapy that is based on the client's needs. I use an attachment-oriented perspective within a relational, psychodynamic framework. This means I am always holding in mind the patterns of behaviour, thoughts and emotions that have arisen out of the adaptations a person may have made in response to relationships and experiences in childhood. These patterns are often expressed within the therapy relationship. My interest in the effects of trauma has led to trainings in Somatic Experiencing® , EMDR and EFT as helpful modalities in its treatment."
