I like to describe the process of therapy to clients as the unpacking and re-packing of a messy suitcase. There may be things in there that have been actively avoided and possibly some things that have been forgotten about altogether. Through gentle and curious exploration, the suitcase is opened; things are taken out and safely examined. Coming face to face with that which has caused pain can be frightening but it needn't be done alone. The re-packing of the suitcase allows for the healing and acceptance of that which has been pushed away from the mind but is still stored in the body. Things will start to feel lighter and clearer.

'We want to throw away problems we cannot shake off from. We all want to fulfill our aspirations. And we want to be happy.' I work with you to fulfill these goals by developing self-awareness & the own potential, find you purposes and make transformative changes. In therapy you can completely be 'just you'. Coming from a bicultural background I sensitively deal with individual/systematic/cultural influences & the different (often stigmatising) labels casted on the individual. I have had experiences with all ranges of client groups and different work settings. I ensure your taken actions are manageable, realistic and sustainable.

I offer understanding and an intelligent conversation. Single-session therapy is my speciality because I believe it is possible to take away an understanding from a session and let its meaning unfold at its own pace in your own life. Many conversations heal, but the difference between a psychologist and a friend is that looking at things with the tools psychologists have at our disposal can help you reframe the problem and then fix it. That is the starting point for feeling better. I am the developer of the Happiness Test, soon to be an app and a book, based on Freudian/Kleinian orientations which is the framework of my practice.

How will counselling help you? It will identify underlying issues, give you a clearer perspective on situations impacting your life. Counselling can help you deal with difficult life events such as unemployment, loss, anxiety and abuse. Are you affected by your past or childhood events? do you crave change or resolution? Counselling provides the space, skills and ability to achieve that change you so desire. I'm passionate about helping people to deal with and over come anxiety. I have a proven track record with adults and young people who suffer with historical trauma and negative child-hood experiences.

Do you feel different than other people, like nobody seems to understand you? Do you often feel like an outsider? Perhaps you have trouble standing up for yourself or speaking your truth. Do you tend to cater to other people's needs and don’t get what you need? Do people sometimes tell you that you're a loving and giving person, but you feel flawed and unlovable? Do you feel uncomfortable in social situations, fearing that people will reject you if you stand out? Do you feel depressed? Do you often feel anxious?

Over the years I have been a therapist, I have supported many individuals to take back control over their lives and find the healing they had been long searching for. My training has enabled me to be able to work with complex emotions at a deep level. This is particularly effective when working with trauma and the impact of early childhood experiences.
