At times life may leave you feeling stressed or overwhelmed, seeking to find wellness as you feel unable to cope with daily demands, financial stressors, anxiety, depression, trauma , loss, bereavement or life adjustments (relationship, employment, or health changes). Struggling with intra- and interpersonal difficulties and looking for personal development and a way to achieve holistic wellness. This can be done through supportive therapy which assists clients to gain new insights into themselves & current difficulties and equips them with skills such as mindfulness, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness.

I work individually with adults who might be feeling overwhelmed or struggling to cope with difficulties that may be related to depression, anxiety, trauma and life changes. For the treatment of depression and anxiety disorders, I primarily make use of a skills based approach called Metacognitive Therapy (MCT). I am a certified EMDR practitioner, a helpful approach for the processing of trauma . I also draw from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and psychodynamic approaches, depending on the specific needs of the client.

I consult clients who struggle with a variety of issues such as addiction, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, trauma , burn-out, work stress, coping, self-esteem and relationship problems.
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.

My practice focuses on adult individual therapy. I believe that human beings have an inherent need to connect with others. When these connections and ways in which we relate to others are challenged or compromised it can often lead to psychological pain. Psychological and emotional difficulties in turn may translate into mental health issues. Hence, the core of my therapeutic approach is to develop a therapeutic relationship with my clients where corrective experiences or new ways of relating can occur.

Life stressors seem to be amplified at the moment, while anxiety and depression are on the rise. Issues of mental health do not have to be dealt with on one's own. A psychotherapy process can offer support by exploring issues, unlearning destructive patterns and creatively replacing them with ones that promote well-being.

As human beings, we strive towards becoming the best version of ourselves. But life often throws several curveballs at us which can lead to difficult times and severe emotional distress. However, it is never too late to practice the necessary self-care and reach out for guidance and support.

Therapy can be an amazing, transformative process towards living a dramatically better life. Ideally the adults or adolescents who get the most out of therapy, want to really engage in the process. They should feel free to say anything; about how their day went, how they're dealing with problems in their life and even the therapy itself. By the eventual end of the whole process, I want clients to feel happier or more energized, be able to let go of toxic people in their life, and being more assertive in making life choices that are right for them.

Everybody faces challenges at different stages of life. Some greater than others. I enjoy witnessing the strength of the human spirit and the will to survive. I aim is to help the client to focus on their strengths (rather than their weaknesses). Furthermore to capitalise on their strengths and to realise their full potential. In times of crisis people tend to forget that they have actually overcome so much in life already and given the support they will be able to do so again. My motto is: Never Give Up!

Trauma and PTSD Counsellors

When should I seek treatment for trauma?

Not everyone who undergoes trauma needs therapy to heal, but many do. If, after experiencing a traumatic event, you find yourself struggling with symptoms such as nightmares, dissociation, irritability, or emotional numbness—especially if these symptoms last more than a month and are severe enough to interfere with your daily functioning—you may benefit from seeking out therapy with a trauma-informed provider.

How long does trauma therapy take?

Different types of therapy for trauma unfold on different timelines. Prolonged exposure therapy and cognitive processing therapy, for example, each take about three months, while trauma-informed CBT may last anywhere from 8 to 25 sessions. Other approaches, especially those that are less structured or that incorporate elements from multiple modalities, may be more open-ended, though many patients report feeling better within the first few months of treatment.

What happens if trauma is left untreated?

Unaddressed trauma can have serious—even devastating—effects on relationships, career, and day-to-day functioning. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can lead people to distrust or lash out at others, making it difficult to maintain intimate relationships; it can also trigger symptoms such as flashbacks or hyperreactivity that can interfere with a person’s ability to function effectively, personally and/or professionally. Some sufferers turn to drugs to find relief. Symptoms may lessen on their own with time, but there is no guarantee that PTSD will resolve on its own.

Can PTSD come back after treatment?

It is possible for PTSD symptoms to recur months or years after successful treatment. This is because, like most mental health disorders, it is not possible to “cure” PTSD, and stressful life events may cause symptoms to recur in even the most resilient individuals. There is no shame in re-experiencing PTSD symptoms nor in returning to therapy when such relapses occur; indeed, many forms of trauma therapy explicitly encourage periodic “maintenance sessions” to reinforce coping skills and ensure that symptoms stay manageable.
