In therapy, I aim to create a therapeutic environment where all clients can feel free to be themselves and work on therapeutic goals in a thoughtful and constructive manner. I strive to work collaboratively with my clients in order to reach their goals. These goals may include establishing meaningful relationships with themselves and others, personal development, working through difficulties, or symptom reduction. I regard establishing therapeutic relationships with my clients as one of life’s greatest privileges.

I enjoy working with people who want to explore themselves deeply, to ask questions about their internal world and make sense of how they relate to others, themselves and the outer world. You may well present with depression or anxiety or be struggling in a relationship. You want to engage therapeutically and gain insight into your relational dynamics and be able to make links between past early relationships with parents or family of origin and how these experiences have predisposed you to relating to others and the world in a unique way. You seek greater freedom from emotional conditioning and to know the fullness and joy of life.

There are times in life when we feel stuck and there seems to be no way forward. You might struggle to concentrate, feel anxious and stressed all the time, lie awake at night, and get angry for no apparent reason. You might also experiences more severe symptoms like phobias, panic attacks, social anxiety, depression, PTSD, substance abuse, self harm, eating disorders etc. The reason might not be apparent, but sometimes it might relate back to unresolved traumatic experiences you've had growing up like bullying, sexual abuse or rape, family violence, sibling rivalry, parents divorce, death of a loved one.

All of us at some point might need support to deal with the many challenges of life, whether it be a personal crisis, a loss, an addiction, a feeling of stuckness or a change in one's ability to cope. I offer compassionate and non-judgemental psychotherapy for adolescents and adults. It is not always easy to take the first step to start therapy and to be vulnerable, but allowing yourself to open up is often the start of the journey towards acceptance or change.

I help people who are stuck, in their heads or in undigested emotions, or in difficult life circumstances, relationships and families. I teach that the only person you can change is yourself, but when you do, the ripple effect is massive. Be the change you want to see, never mind what trauma has led to your anxiety, depression etc. We're all addicts: we all have devoted habits or coping mechanisms. After a while these harm us. Find another way. I use a Transpersonal approach because it's v effective. This means I remind you you are connected to something greater than yourself, however you define that - and how to employ that daily.
