There are many difficulties in life that can feel overwhelming at times. Life circumstances or internal struggles can leave us feeling as if we are not getting what we should out of life and we want to be able to move forward. In all circumstances I believe passionately in the power of psychotherapy to help enact positive change. The tools and skills you could learn with me can enable you to feel that you can live the rest of your life free from what has been holding you back. We would do this together working at your pace and always being in partnership.

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.

I believe it takes great courage to reach out and look for support. However, I know it can be scary and overwhelming looking for the right person. 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. My warm and gentle approach ensures that our work together enables you to feel safe and grounded, working at a pace that suit you.

My education and experience help me use various processes and collaborate with each person or couple to create their own unique treatment plan with the aim to cover, as much as possible, their own unique needs. Through these processes (e.g. through Socratic dialogue/questioning, Empathic Responses, and other Systemic and Cognitive-Behavioral techniques), I invite people to develop more self-awareness, to renegotiate key issues of their existence and to approach past traumatic experiences in a more constructive manner.

Every therapy session will more than likely be a journey. Emotions run high because feeling and memories emerge that you may have not been prepared for so it's important that you feel comfortable, safe and supported. The therapy session should be a judgement free zone where you are listened to but also challenged while your boundaries are respected. You shouldn't feel the need to filter yourself, let it be your time for expression because that time is solely about you and how you're feeling. Not every session will leave you feeling emotionally raw because therapy is as much about your good days as it is your bad. Enjoy the process.

Self-Harming (Cutting) Counsellors
Self-harm (SH) or deliberate self-harm (DSH) is the deliberate infliction of damage to your own body. It includes cutting, burning, scratching, banging or hitting yourself, interfering with wound healing, and the ingestion of toxic substances or objects. While self injury (SI) can look like suicide, it's not; most people who mutilate themselves do it as a way to regulate mood. People who hurt themselves in this way may be motivated by a need to distract themselves from inner turmoil, or to quickly release anxiety that builds due to an inability to express intense emotions.
