About me and my therapy practice
Being stuck in a pattern of relating to the self or others that is not serving us any longer is a common human experience. My approach is integrative mainly psychodynamic, meaning I work with a person's defences and resistance in a gentle but challenging way, examining early childhood experiences and relationships.
My focus is to encourage you to develop your curiosity about yourself and others. Through this you can enhance your self-awareness to enable you to start taking responsibility for your own behaviour and gain control of your life / situation. This in turn helps you learn a new way of relating and build new healthy boundaries.
I create a safe non-judgemental space for frank, open and intimate discussions about your issues and struggles.
I am experienced in working with issues of self-esteem, depression, anxiety, PTSD, infidelity, communication, domestic violence, LGBTQ+, gender issues and suicidal thoughts. I offer short and long term counselling in English, Arabic or French to individuals, couples and families.
I work from home.
