Upon finishing college I thought of the many needa of potential clients. As a result of this I spent a year working in a drug & alcohol addiction centre. Gaining the experience & knowledge necessary to treat people during & after recovery for addiction. I soon discovered that regardless of the presenting issue most clients presented with having experienced some form of trauma. I then went on to study Traumatology & PTSD. Currently working in the therapeutic setting with families of those with disabilities.

I offer evidence-based psychological therapy which is collaborative and respectful. My clinical approach is psychoanalytically informed. I always look for the most suitable way of helping each person, having in mind their resources and needs. I provide a gentle, safe place free from judgment to talk openly about yourself and your troubles, where you can learn to listen to yourself in a different way and understand your experiences. I will be interested in how your past impacts your present and will help you to develop a greater understanding of the unseen patterns of behaviour that can underlie psychological distress.

Are you feeling overwhelmed, stressed and unable to focus? Feeling worried, struggling with the world today. I use Trauma Informed Care, EMDR and Internal Family Systems (IFS) - I specialise in working with clients struggling with Anxiety, Stress, Depression, Trauma and Unresolved Childhood Issues. When I first meet with a client, we discuss what has brought them to therapy. With this information we discuss how we will work with together. The first session with any new client is to assess if we can work together and if the client feels comfortable with continuing the therapeutic process. In person or online via Zoom

As an ongoing practice, the process of psychotherapy is an intimate journey towards inner discovery and awareness leading to increased well-being, balance, insight and clarity. There are many reasons which may lead you to initiate this sustained exploration of self—aspects of your life which are painful, frustrating or holding you back from achieving your potential for happiness and growth. I offer a safe, accepting and supportive therapeutic space to explore whatever you need to discuss, from your past or in the here-and-now.

From my perspective, psychotherapy means healing. It is the opening, where individuals begin to experience a more full contact with themselves and the outside world. I help them understand their emotions that signpost their needs. I help them to discover their unfulfilled needs and, together, we look for obstacles and barriers that could prevent people from fully enjoying their lives. One step at a time, they become increasingly ready to lead their lives consciously. They begin to authentically live, rather than continue, their lives.

Perhaps you’re considering therapy and have questions regarding the process or maybe you are searching for a psychotherapist for someone you care about. It may feel like a risk when you open yourself up to ask for help. I want to acknowledge and honour the moment of vulnerability as a strength. Life is challenging and you don’t have to go through it alone.

Narcissistic Personality (NPD) Counsellors

What type of therapy is best for narcissistic personality disorder?

Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is best treated with talk therapy, which could involve cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, schema therapy, gestalt therapy, or similar approaches. A therapist will help a patient uncover the feelings that may drive their behavior and discover how to engage with themselves and those around them with greater empathy and understanding, fewer demands, and less defensiveness, with the goal of developing a more authentic sense of self that enables healthier relationships.

How do therapists treat NPD?

By developing a strong therapeutic relationship, and continually focusing patients on relationships, community, and connection, a therapist, through talk therapy, may be able to help someone with NPD change. In sessions, a therapist will help an individual achieve relief from their current stressors, including the treatment of co-occurring conditions such as anxiety or depression. A therapist may also help an individual to recognize unhealthy coping mechanisms, learn new ways of interacting with others, and eventually become able to feel and display empathy.

Can a narcissist be cured with therapy?

Therapy can be effective. After a serious setback or great loss, someone with NPD may be forced to recognize that they are not immune to life’s challenges. That can spur feelings of melancholy and depression that lead them to seek professional help. Once an individual decides to seek help, they have already taken a step that the majority of those with NPD never will. Still, people with NPD often quit therapy as they naturally resist feeling vulnerable, being challenged, or admitting to flaws.

How can you get narcissistic personality disorder treatment for someone?

It is notoriously difficult to convince someone with NPD to seek help. With their feelings of superiority, they may be unlikely to recognize or acknowledge that they have a problem, or that their problem is narcissism. Sometimes, they are aware that they are arrogant and that others resent them but they don’t see it as a problem because they are convinced of their superiority. People with NPD have trouble maintaining relationships, but family members and others who do feel close to them, and whose presence they value, may be able to encourage them to seek therapy.
