I offer therapy and supervision that starts with what you bring; making no assumptions, listening with empathy and working with you towards growth and change. The client-therapist relationship is vital, as we need to trust each other in order to work together effectively (getting the right therapist for you is more important than gaining a client for me). I offer weekly, fortnightly, monthly and ad hoc sessions. Please EMAIL/TEXT as I cannot answer the phone when with clients and I don’t want to miss your call. Jan 2023 - I currently have no evening, after 6pm, sessions available

Online psychotherapist with an eclectic and inventive approach. Practicing Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). I believe that people already have within themselves what they need in order to overcome their struggles. All it takes is a bit of guidance and someone to ask the right questions. My wish for my clients is that they find the inner freedom to live the life that they want. I mostly work with expats, travelers, digital nomads, burners - I can relate to the lifestyle and can appreciate the need for flexibility and rescheduling sessions when necessary, however, anyone is welcome.

Talking to someone who will really listen and understand can bring a surprising level of relief. Keeping everything inside your head is so hard, and talking to someone who gets it can help you see there are other ways forward. I like working with people who struggle with anxiety, self-criticism and regret, low mood, social difficulties, volatile emotions, anger and resentment. It is exhausting dealing with difficult emotions every day. Before getting to a therapist, most people have tried a lot of self-help and often made some progress, but sometimes you feel stuck with the same problems cropping up. It really does help to talk.

I specialise in Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) along side other integrative therapies such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Mindfulness and hypnotherapy. The framework my approach is built on is REBT, yet as each of us are different, I integrate the other therapies to suit each individual. Some clients benefit more from rationalising thoughts and beliefs, while some need help getting over the past, and some need help with moving forward. I work with my clients to address issues, create and reach goals, and to help them make the most of everyday life, without the struggles.

I offer mindfulness-based psychotherapy, a holistic approach focusing on the mind and body. I can help you to identify what is difficult for you in the present, and look to the past for information that might be helpful. My approach can connect you with your inner resources and natural state of wellbeing to find a way forward.
