Philosophy

I will aim at relating with you through a person-to-person, genuine, accepting, empathic and professional relationship, in the pursuit of your goals and expectations of therapy. I will endeavour to work with you collaboratively and ‘walk’ alongside you, with consistency, supporting your process achieving your goals.

Approach

My approach to therapy can be described as direct and straight forward with the aim to accommodate my client’s needs. I use various models and always adapt my approach to suit the client. Some of the approaches I use are: Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT); CBT-E for eating disorders; Psychodynamic therapy; EMDR; Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT); Gestalt techniques; Transactional analysis ; Mindfulness and relaxation;Solution focused therapy; Person centred counselling; Positive psychology; Motivational interviewing

DBT informed approaches to managing emotions; Hypnotherapy-Past life regression and Future life progression.

Motivation

I have chosen this field of work simply because I love people and I want to make a contribution to their wellbeing. I focus on connecting with my clients and this brings meaning to my life and my life’s purpose. I enjoy meeting people and I consider it a privilege that my clients allow me to be part of their life’s journey. My work is life enhancing and this is what keeps me motivated every day of my life.

About me

I love travelling, seeing new places, meeting new people, learning new things every day of my life. I enjoy expanding my skills, spending time with others and practicing spiritual techniques such as meditation, reiki, mindfulness to allow me to connect with nature and the world. I put great emphasis on self-care because this allows me to help others.
