About me and my therapy practice

I offer face to face and online counselling.

I believe in the power of an integrative approach to counselling, recognizing that each individual is unique and may benefit from a tailored blend of therapeutic modalities.

My philosophy is rooted in the understanding that the mind, body, and spirit are interconnected, and addressing these aspects collectively contributes to lasting personal growth.

Thus, I will work compassionately and diligently with you to find balance, acceptance, direction, and empowerment in your life.

Practice description

How I help people. 

I aim to create a compassionate and authentic therapeutic relationship with those who engage with me. Meaning, we will work to develop the courage and traits you are already using in wanting to address your discomfort, pain or trauma. 

Within this process, we can look at how your motivational systems, beliefs, values, and stories you tell yourself can affect how you relate to yourself and the wold around you. 

In all, we work towards you finding resilience, solutions, acceptance, self reliance, connectedness and peace of mind. 

Approach to Therapy

"I am committed to forging a flexible, responsive, and tailored approach to helping personal growth."

From my approach as a counsellor, I emphasize the importance of the 'here and now,' guiding individuals to identify and understand current patterns, narratives, beliefs, and values that may hinder or foster empowerment. This approach can increase self determination, independent decision making and self directed action. Moreover, we can begin to see the interplay between how trauma memories, emotions and feelings govern motivational systems, thoughts and behaviour. 

Additionally, I utilize psychotherapeutic techniques to assist clients in exploring and healing past experiences, enabling a deeper understanding and transformation of their lives. 

I create systems and methods that fit each client, rather than forcing the client to adapt to a rigid, preconceived therapeutic model.

How I work

In our sessions, I engage in an 'active and collaborative' humanistic approach. This involves attentive listening, thoughtful reflection, and sharing insights in a timely, empathetic, and compassionate manner.

As an active and dynamic therapist, I integrate therapeutic theories, psychological models, and frameworks with existential and philosophical insights to provide comprehensive support.

Practice description


Sessions are typically scheduled weekly, lasting 50 minutes each, though I am flexible to accommodate a cadence that suits you best, whether that be bi-weekly or more frequent meetings. 

While I prefer face-to-face interactions, I am open to online sessions or a combination of both to best fit your needs and preferences.

You are warmly invited to get in touch with me to determine if you feel at ease and confident in pursuing a working relationship together.

I welcome all, regardless of any individual’s characteristic. I strive to celebrate, protect, and safeguard the right for people to express gender and sexual identity, race, and ethnic background as well as religious or cultural centricities.
