About me and my therapy practice

I bring natural warmth and curiosity to my work as a therapist. I'm passionate about offering a space in which my clients feel safe to explore what challenges them, and to connect to resources that allow healing and growth. I draw mainly from existential and psychodynamic approaches, which means I'm interested in the various dimensions of your real life situation as well as your internal experience of the world. I offer a personal experience of therapy based on your individual needs and adapt my approach accordingly as your needs change.

  • You may find yourself coming to therapy feeling distressed, unhappy or confused. I offer the opportunity to begin making sense of your thoughts and feelings, through an exploration of your circumstances that feels manageable. Therapy can be an opportunity to engage in a collaborative process that encourages you to open up possibility, even in areas where life feels stuck. Therapy may also be a time to begin facing up to parts of our lives and ourselves that have previously felt too painful to think about and understand.

I’m interested in how our early experiences of family and relationships influence our ability to cope with life later on. We may repeat early patterns of relating, and of protecting ourselves, even when they are no longer helpful and may even maintain our current problems. Through understanding these patterns and how they’re limiting us, it’s possible to begin making choices that can help lead a more fulfilling life.

I've been a mindfulness practitioner for over 10 years. I've worked with bodily experience in a variety of ways and this informs my work with clients.
