About

Psychotherapy can be different things for different people. For one it could be the process through which we come to re-establish meaning and purpose in our lives. To another it could involve the development of practical coping skills in the face of adveristy. For one it could involve the expression of emotions that have been kept out of awareness, while for another lead to a better understanding of these very emotions. Whatever the aim or goals of therapy may be, it is always a safe space that can be used in a creative and liberating manner, where you will be heard and not judged. ​
I was trained in various therapeutic modalities and work from an integrative perspective. This means that services are tailored and personalised according to the needs of the client and their presenting problem. I have a special interest in loss and grief, and am currently doing my PhD in disenfranchised grief.
Asking for help can be challenging but it can also be infinitely rewarding. As Carl R. Rogers once said, “When a person realises he has been deeply heard, his eyes moisten. I think in some real sense he is weeping for joy. It is as though he were saying, "Thank God, somebody heard me. Someone knows what it's like to be me”.
