"I help individuals recover hope, a sense of self-empowerment and joy in their work, leisure, relationships, and daily life. My work is based on principles of holistic and alternative medicine, mindfulness, positive psychology, spiritual sciences, quantum mechanics, neuroplasticity, and fight-or-flight physiology as well as the fundamental laws of nature. I apply the "inside-out" approach to working with clients, where changes on the outside are supported by inner transformation around fear patterns, remembering who we are and recovering individuality. I combine Western sciences with traditional healing modalities from India, New Zealand, Australia, Brazil, Russia, US, & Europe."

Working from a person-centered and solution-focused approach I support my clients by helping them find connections between their feelings, thoughts and actions. I strive to create powerful therapeutic relationships as I believe this is the foundation of a successful healing alliance."

"The most important factor in choosing a therapist or counselor, once you have established their credentials, is to select someone you are comfortable talking to. Research shows that the quality of the relationship can be more important to the outcome than the treatment modality. For this reason, I try to establish an understanding, collaborative and interactive approach, and I am happy to offer an initial phone consultation at no charge, before setting up our first meeting, You should always feel free to ask me any questions you may have."

It's very important to me to make that initial contact as comfortable as possible, knowing that sharing painful emotions and experiences with a stranger is very difficult.

"The challenges, difficulties, or traumas we encounter in life can make us feel anxious, depressed, vulnerable, or even overwhelmed. Psychotherapy begins with finding someone you can trust, not only to lend a compassionate ear, but also where you can reflect and discuss openly your thoughts, feelings, and actions. I believe in working collaboratively, interactively, and respectfully to create a safe space. By exploring how your ways of coping may have developed and what they may serve, we can help you discover more varied ways of responding to life's struggles, enabling you to feel more hopeful and empowered."
