About me and my therapy practice
I believe that no one is an island. The human need to connect, to be seen, and to be truly heard are at the centre of my work. With an integrative background and an instinctive approach, I am able to meet my clients in whichever way is most beneficial for them. I use a Person-Centred approach to help clients to become the best version of themselves, or might draw from Psychodynamic teaching to accompany clients on their journey into the past to identify historical issues that are affecting their lives in the present. If required, we can also work on very concrete issues by using CBT techniques.
To say it with Friedrich Nietzsche: ‘Become the person you are.’ I will work on understanding and accepting yourself. Some feelings might make us uncomfortable, but they too need to be honoured. My work aims to be empowering, supporting clients to live a self-determined life, overcoming loss, regaining a sense of identity and facilitating post-traumatic growth.
Having worked in Public Relations for many years, I understand the importance of relationships and the impact they can have on a client’s life. Feelings of isolation, loss of self-worth and identity need to be explored in a wider context to come to a place of acknowledgement, acceptance, and eventually, healing.
For me, being a therapist means walking alongside my clients, being present to help look in places where it hurts the most, exploring the 'ugly', and celebrating the good.

My first session
As the therapeutic relationship is integral to my approach, getting to know each other and making sure we are the right fit is important. I will be asking questions to find out what you came to achieve/what you need and how I can best support you. I like to be very transparent and am always happy to answer any questions you might have. There is no pressure to continue if you do not feel that I can help you.
