About me and my therapy practice

My approach is  Relational-Integrative, which means that I offer a blend of the three main approaches: psychodynamic, humanistic and cognitive-behavioural therapy and can therefore tailor my approach to what you need.

I offer both brief therapy, as well as open-ended long term therapy.
