About

We experience difficulties in different ways. Often people seek therapy when they have been feeling feeling more anxious, stressed or frustrated more than usual, sometimes indicating a life transition such as relationship problems or difficulties at work. At other times clients get in touch when they noticed that something does not feel good but are still unsure of the reasons that may lie beneath and are keen to develop insight. We will build a shared understanding of current difficulties, and together will identify your hopes, goals and needsI draw from psychological evidence-based approaches to inform your unique treatment plan.
I work using a multi-cultural framework and specialise in working with expats. Having lived abroad for more than a third of my life I understand the challenges of adjusting to a new job, and adapting to a foreign culture and its impacts of one's wellbeing. My areas of interest are parents' mental wellbeing and supporting trauma sufferers.
