Choosing me as your counsellor. If you’re looking for a counsellor, you need to find someone who is going to be a good “fit” for you. I believe that the most important part of any counselling is having a good relationship with the therapist. You need to be able to trust me and feel comfortable talking to me about yourself. Otherwise you cannot get the best out of the experience. Contacting a counsellor for the first time can be daunting. You might be nervous or struggling to put things into words. It is okay if you are not quite sure what you want from this, I will do everything I can to put you at your ease.

Online psychotherapist with an eclectic and inventive approach. Practicing Internal Family Systems Therapy ( IFS ) and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT).

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.

Having interned at the Child Institute of Mental Health in London; as well as in an adolescent rehabilitation centre in Dallas, TX specialising in addictions, adolescent sexual abuse and family systems ; I offer that net and support in a non-judgemental environment.
A confidential, non-judgmental space where you can explore positive and challenging aspects of your life and any change you wish to explore or make. I have personal experience in sexual, physical, emotional and mental abuse; divorce; living with a Narcissist; step-parenting and living in an Ex-pat community. The approaches I predominantly use are Solution Focused, Bowenian Systemic approach, Brainspotting or Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy (EFP). All approaches work with clients, though I have found 'Walk and Talk' or EFP best for adolescents or those suffering with PTSD or Trauma, along with Brainspotting.

As an IFS therapist, I offer a safe space to help you to understand challenges and where does the emotional pain come from. I focus therapy on working with core wounds. Core wounds are the reason why you might experience fear & anxiety, they can be a source of feelings of shame & abandonment which often lead to confusion, conflicts, and feelings of “unsafety”, especially in meaningful relationships. Further causing destructive behavior towards yourself/your body. In our work together, we will use the pain as a guide and catalyst for healing, self-discovery, and self-realization. Ultimately leading to a fulfilling and joyful life.

I integrate approaches such as Psychodynamic, including Attachment, Transactional Analysis, Internal Family Systems and Compassionate Inquiry.
I help people have better relationships with themselves and those around them. If you feel that your 'emotional suitcase' has become too heavy to lift, life may therefore feel overwhelming, relationships may feel strained or are breaking down, you may feel anxious, depressed, angry, lost or stuck. You may even have an inner voice that is really mean. All of this may create conflict, distance and pain, taking you away from yourself and those around you. Making sense of ourselves and the world begins to get really difficult. You may need some help to unpack that case, sort through the contents and find clarity.
