Hello and welcome! I'm a Pluralistic/Integrative counsellor passionate about supporting people to cope, overcome their difficulties and improve their wellbeing. Do you feel sad, misunderstood, overwhelmed or lonely? Do you struggle in your relationships? Do you want to understand and process your emotions to enjoy life more? Do you want to strengthen your confidence? In my practice, I strive to create a space where insight is cultivated and offer tools and methods to make sense of things. One thing I hear from my clients often is their regret for not starting counselling sooner. For more about how I work, please visit my website.
Low mood, anxiety, and low self-esteem can accumulate from daily stress or might stem from past trauma and our upbringing. It might be work-related or arise from family issues. It helps immensely to have a safe space where our concerns are warmly heard without judgment. I offer tools to make sense of triggers, patterns and beliefs that hold us back.
We are all human, experiencing challenges in life. In my opinion, no one is exempt from benefiting from counselling, psychotherapy, treatment, therapy. I'm using these terms interchangeably to mean one thing: the deep work to personal growth and wellbeing. By being here, you're taking the first step towards improving your wellbeing and life. Get in touch!

I work pluralistically, meaning I derive tools from the various psychotherapeutic modalities (CBT, Person-centred, Psychodynamic) and tailor them to each client's unique needs. It also means that I work collaboratively and transparently with my clients, and together we decide the best course of action for their therapeutic journey.
