About me and my therapy practice

It’s all about relationships – primarily the relationship you have with yourself and how this impacts the relationships with others and the world. Sometimes these relationships become ruptured and if not repaired, psychological disturbances may result. As a therapist, I will work with you towards restoration and promote psychological well-being and growth. As a life coach, I will facilitate the transformation from the current you to the ideal you, you aspire to be. In both cases, this means helping you to access the necessary inner resources to experience a greater sense of free will and a higher sense of achievement and fulfillment.

Practice description

I use various approaches that include Person-Centred, Gestalt, Psychodynamic, Psycho-analytic, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, Single Session Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Hypnosis, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy and Art Therapy. These are used within a Pluralistic framework. That means I use one or some of these approaches to form a specific treatment plan tailor-made to work with your issue(s) in a way that suits your personality or situation.
