I work with clients in an integrative, holistic way using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), polyvagal, person-centred, gestalt and psychodynamic approaches. I build the therapeutic relationship based on respect, empathy and acceptance of each individual and their unique needs. I believe that every individual has the potential for growth through the support of an accepting, safe, and secure environment.
I help clients safely connect with and release unresolved emotions and physical effects of stress and equip clients with the tools and confidence to feel safe and supported as they engage with their emotional process.
I have undertaken an in-depth journey of personal growth in training to become a psychotherapist as part of my mandatory psychotherapist qualification requirements. Due to this rigorous self-development qualification, I can facilitate clients calmly and solidly as they are supported to navigate their emotional pain.

My approach is very supportive to clients who feel overwhelmed by chronic stress, anxiety and depression. I have experience of helping clients through polyvagal therapy to co-regulate their nervous systems into feelings of calmness, presence, safety and security. This approach, in turn helps to foster client capacity to self-regulate their emotional states.

I use polyvagal theory to help you to feel safer within yourself and to help to befriend your emotions. I use psychodynamic theory to help you to make sense of how you relate to yourself and others, this theory also helps to make unknown unhelpful patterns become known and worked through. I used person-centred theory to help you to become authentic and to facilitate your growth needs.
