About me and my therapy practice

Life can be complicated, oftentimes feeling like things are coming at us from all sides. Managing daily commitments and juggling mental and physical health, while trying to enjoy life on top of that, is a lot at the best of times. Especially then when issues arise, living the life you want can feel near impossible. 

These periods in life are too often related to more “obvious” things such as life events and transitions, mental and physical health issues, and illness. However, they can also be about more “subtle”, yet very real and common experiences. Things such as sadness and discomfort of where you are in life, how you feel about yourself, how you live, and unresolved past issues, are all valid and worth taking a closer look at. Whatever the challenges, I believe that a safe and non-judgemental therapy space may help you navigate them. 

How I can help

I work in a person-centred way, meaning I am here to listen to you with openness and compassion. I am not here to tell you what to do, but for us to collaborate and together figure out what you need and want, to achieve your goals and aspirations. Whatever you'd like to address in our work together will be approached gently and respectfully, as your experience matters and is unique to you. This will help us build a trusting and safe therapeutic relationship. My hope is that this will help you get to know and understand yourself better, starting a process of change that is unique to you and your therapy goals. 

How to get in touch

If you think I could help you, I would like to hear from you. I know how important it is to find the right therapist from both personal and professional experience. That's why I offer a free initial 20 minute consultation over telephone or videocall. Here we can explore what you’re looking for, and whether we may be suitable to work together. Please do call, text, or email me to book the free consultation, indicating preference for call or videocall, or if you have any further questions. 

Practice description

I've worked with people with a range of difficulties with mental and physical health, as well as various life challenges, listed in the section below. My training focused on learning about each individual with their unique story. As such, I am open to working with you even if your concerns do not match the listed ones. 

I do have areas of particular focus due to my professional and lived experience. My specialties include:

Neurodiverse people - diagnosed and undiagnosed (academic and professional challenges, difficulties with relating/navigating relationships/intimacy issues, coping strategies, substance use,  masking/unmasking, identity, mental and physical health struggles, family issues, etc.).

People navigating complex health (such as chronic and long-term physical illness and mental health concerns, stress, burnout, and related issues) to live more meaningfully.

Young people/ young adults (16 years+).

Students/ mature students/ people in education with related challenges.

People experiencing occupational health related issues/ workplace issues (e.g., burnout, bullying/ navigating career changes).

Sessions are 50 minutes long, and usually would be on weekly basis (however otherwise can also be agreed at our consultation call depending on your needs and preferences). 

I offer both in-person and remote (online and telephone) therapy, as well as short-term (usually 4 to 8 sessions) and long-term (usually 10 to 20 sessions) therapy. You can choose your preferred mode of therapy, based on your preferences and needs. I would also discuss this with you in our consultation call, and would be happy to help you figure out what would suit your therapy needs best. 

I work collaboratively, and a big part of my work is to ask for your feedback throughout the process. This way we would ensure you're getting most out of therapy.
