As a qualified and experienced counsellor, I offer a safe and confidential space where clients can process difficulties and explore feelings without being judged. My aim is to provide a therapeutic experience where people can feel valued and heard. Counselling is not only a space to talk, sometimes it’s easier to express ourselves through art and creativity; in my practice there is a wide variety of materials – art, music, puppetry, sand tray… I have extensive experience in working with adults as well as with children and young people, both in my private practice and through my work as a school-based counsellor.

My way of working is largely humanistic, with at its core Rogers’ Person Centred Counselling. On this basis, I do integrate other therapeutic visions, in particular, Gestalt Therapy and Existential Counselling. The use of creative ideas and materials comes from my experience as a Steiner School teacher; I also have a specific interest in sand tray therapy.

I believe that every individual is unique. A holistic vision of the human being informs my practice, and I believe that our difficulties in life can always be seen from different perspectives. Counselling facilitates inner processing and helps clients to find their own healing strengths.
