About

We humans tend to work against ourselves which creates a multitude of different struggles and distress levels throughout our lives. My clients come from all walks of life seeking help with for a wide range of problematic experiences or reactions. They can be struggling with current adverse life events, past traumas, clinical and personality difficulties or just plain fed up feeling like life is exhausting or demanding. However, they all ha a common goal: To make their world work better for them.
My approach marries theory, experience and techniques from developmental psychology, psychotherapy, neuropsychology and forensic psychology through which, together, we formulate a deep understanding of the motivations and needs driving your unique profile of thoughts, experiences and behaviour. These insights stimulate a better way of working with yourself.
Internal struggles are part of the human condition yet most of us feel that we can cope less or are in some way inferior admit to our 'issues'. There is a common conspiracy to appear just fine regardless of how we feel or pressured we can find life's tasks or relationships. I think the truth is we could all benefit from knowledgeable guidance at times.
