Sometimes it is easier to talk with someone outside the family, outside the social circle. I work collaboratively and compassionately with adolescents and adults. My aim is to provide a safe, confidential space where the person feels heard and seen, and most importantly can hear themselves, look at what they want to change to feel happier in themselves, discover their needs and unmet needs and to learn to tap into their inner and external resources.

I work best with clients who are realistic about trusting the process of psychotherapy and are therefore willing to commit to attending until they see their initial concerns relieved rather than tying themselves to a select number of appointments. It allows an eclectic approach which can lead to real insight and genuine change.

I support the client exploring their presenting issues, thought processes, emotions and behaviours that may not be serving them well. Collaboratively, we work through past traumas and life events, which may result in paralysing fears, anxiety, low mood and prove stressful. We work on regulating emotionally, creating new coping strategies, empowering a true sense of self, enabling self- love and self -acceptance. With grief and loss, both living loss and loss through death, we gently explore how grief is living, even though we look at what once was.

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.

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
