About me and my therapy practice

My expertise includes dealing with psychological difficulties which relate to personal sexual/ issues, anxieties, depression, addictions, self-harming, suicidal thoughts, trauma, OCD and BPD. I am experienced in working with borderline clients and I use Dialectical Behaviour Therapy and Mindfulness to help to manage high emotional vulnerability plus to develop skills needed to regulate emotions.

I value individual difference, honesty, integrity, finding your own path, standing out from the crowd, connection, relationship. I strongly believe people can be empowered to find their own answers. I don't always have all the answers, although I might have a suggestion or two.  I can tolerate stuckness, and I am not afraid to be afraid, nor walk into a dark place. I always follow the principles of confidentiality, empathy and congruence.

My theoretical orientation is psychodynamic; using the relationship between myself and the client, looking at the dynamics between us and exploring whether they are informed by early attachments and associations. I pay attention to the client's discourse as it often gives us clues of the underlined issues. I also find metaphors and dreams particularly helpful in accessing psychological material that may be blocked by trauma or defense mechanisms.

The therapy starts with an initial consultation.This would allow both of us an opportunity to explore the difficulties which have led you to consider engaging in psychotherapy and see how we feel in each other’s company and consider whether we might be able to successfully work together.

Facetime and Skype sessions available.
