"I am a very experienced psychotherapist with over 30 years in private practice, supervision and teaching. I work with all kinds of people and groups, with all the issues and challenges inherent in being a human being. I do have a special ability to help 'outsiders' - people who don't feel at home in the mainstream and find it hard to be their true selves: introverts, highly sensitive people, artists, thinkers, people-pleasers, people with blocks to reaching their full potential. Authenticity, self-actualization, self-acceptance and connection to one's inner self are important concepts in my work."
