有的时候,事情就那么猝不及防的发生了;有的时候,事情已经发生了很久。你也许想找个人聊聊,理理思路;也许,你已经笃定闭口不谈,或者不知道该从何谈起。不管你身处何地,决定如何,我都希望你了解到一点,孤军奋战是一种勇敢的选择,寻找帮助和整合资源是一种智慧的眼光。Sometimes things just happen ; other times, they've been happening for a long time. You may want to talk to someone to sort things out; perhaps, you've decided to close your mouth or don't know where to start. Wherever you are and whatever you decide, I hope you have realised one thing: standing alone is a brave choice; searching for help and integrating resources is a wise decision.

UNIQUE I don’t believe in “one solution fits all”. So I do an initial assessment and get to know you and your therapy goals. I train in different methods and techniques and tailor the session to your needs. HOLISTIC My approach to well-being and happiness is holistic. I look at the different elements in your life and your environment to better understand where you are at right now and what you need. I work on being present, mindful, and accepting. EMPOWERING I believe in giving people tools to apply in their lives outside of the therapy room. I like to give people the autonomy to make choices and perfect their reflective skills.

Becoming flexible - physically, socially, and psychologically, means we have the clarity of choice.

There are times in life when we all need someone to talk to, who will not judge us or make us feel ashamed. I seek to provide a place where women and men are able to process the disappointments of life that lead to unhelpful behaviours and difficult relationships. In my work with couples and individuals, I provide a safe environment where both people can explore the issues that have caused them to build walls rather than bridges between them. I have years of experience helping clients to identify the triggers for unhelpful and destructive behaviours and offer ongoing support to choose new directions and pathways towards their goals

I consider myself an eclectic psychologist, focused on adapting my intervention to each person. I am not very fond of follow the trend of labeling with diagnostics and jargon, but rather to first understand the unique person with whom I am working with, and then adapt the working tools accordingly. However, over the years of clinical practice, I have found that the work of emotions is central to all processes of transformation and personal growth, thus this is an intervention tool much present in my therapy room.

My approach is optimistic, creative and fun! Whilst problems can be serious and painful, our conversations will be uplifting. ‘Problem stories’ can become so overwhelming that it can be almost impossible to separate ourselves from them. This is where narrative therapy comes in. Together, we will disentangle problems stories and you will step into new, life-giving stories.

Gottman Method Counsellors
The Gottman Method For Making Relationships Work shows that to make a relationship last, couples must become better friends, learn to manage conflict, and create ways to support each other's hopes for the future. Drs. John and Julie Gottman have shown how couples can accomplish this by paying attention to what they call the Sound Relationship House, or the seven components of healthy relationships.
