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 psychodynamic and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy to help to manage and regulate high emotional vulnerabilities such as rage , impulsivity and reckless behaviour.
I value individual difference, honesty, integrity, finding your own path, standing out from the crowd, connection, relationship. My practice is based on three key factors that highly contribute to producing successful therapeutic outcomes: 1) my skills and experience, 2) empathy, warmth and humour - all increase a client's ability to feel validated and understood, 3) your motivation and ability to form emotional intimacy with me, based on trust and honesty. I always follow the principles of confidentiality and congruence; valuing individual difference, and finding your own path
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.
I am an accredited member of BACP and I am supervised by their requirements
