About Me

In therapy, my initial goal is simple: to help clients feel truly heard. I want them to walk away feeling accepted, cared for, and supported. So many of us go through life without this and finding a therapist who truly and deeply understood me was transformative.

Why Me?

Compassion & Perspective

Compassionate Expertise

A compassionate and expert perspective to every session, offering a blend of professional knowledge and a genuine commitment to your well-being.

Customised
Care

My approach is tailored to your unique needs, ensuring that each session is a step forward on your personal journey.

Confidentiality and Trust

Prioritising your privacy and the trust you place in me. Every session is conducted with the utmost confidentiality and respect.

Empowerment and Growth

This is not just about addressing challenges; it's about empowering you to cultivate resilience, embrace personal growth, and lead a more fulfilling life.

Blended techniques

My Approach & Modality

As an Integrative Psychotherapist, I blend Humanistic, Psychodynamic, and CBT theories to delve deep into the root causes of your pain and distress. By exploring beyond current issues, we trace back through your life to understand how your upbringing, parenting, and school experiences continue to impact.

This process unveils insights into these now dysfunctional habits, explaining why they occur and persist. Psychotherapy can fill developmental deficits enabling you to develop your sense of self and relearn ways of coping that are functional and fulfilling. In this empathetic space, you can explore emotions, challenge beliefs, and uncover strengths. This transformative journey helps to foster empowerment so you can live fully, as your real self, free from the defences that hinder your progression.
