Woman celebrating on a mountain looking up to the sky. Letting go of all your mental fears

My Approach

My first-hand experience within a trusting therapeutic relationship allowed me to believe in the possibility for recovery and I now feel privileged to be able to support and guide others on their healing journey. 

 

My experience mirrors much of the research in this area indicating that the client-therapist relationship is vital to therapy. For you to work through whatever is troubling you, you need to be completely free to explore your feelings and thoughts in a safe, non-judgemental environment. With this in mind, I am dedicated to the two of us building a trusting relationship together, free of judgment, in which you can relax and feel at ease. 

It could be that you have learned how to live in a way that attempts to guard you against any additional emotional injuries. Essentially, your life experience may have taught you how to build a wall of emotional defence, but that is not your truest self.

That very wall that you have built to protect your true self, maybe the obstacle that is keeping you from experiencing the fullness of life. Let's work together to reclaim your strength, reconnect to your internal resources and your innate capacity to heal.

My aim is for our sessions to be a place for you to really be your true self, where we can welcome all aspects of you. You don’t have to go through this alone.

Rather than using one single model or theory, I take a flexible, integrative and holistic approach. There is no one-size-fits-all process. Instead, I draw on a range of proven strategies depending on what fits you, the client, best. This process is reviewed regularly with each client to ensure you are getting what you need from our sessions

“… our understanding of psychological and neurophysiological processes is developing at such a rapid pace that we are now moving beyond ‘schools of psychotherapy’ towards a more integrated, biopsychosocial science of psychotherapy.” Paul Gilbert
