My mission is to help people (re) discover their spark and support them to live their most authentic life.
I believe for therapy to be effective, it is important to withhold judgement, to be emotionally present, to take the time to really see and hear people’s stories, to understand their unique situation and perspective.
This is why I won’t make assumptions, or try to make people fit into a theory, I employ the strength and confidence necessary to hold the space until we find the best approach.
I believe that, in challenging times, we want help to find the path that is right for us. This can be complicated when we can’t even imagine where to begin, or what our destination might look like. Finding the right psychotherapist will help to navigate and grow through these experiences, unencumbered by limiting beliefs, or cookie-cutter approaches. I am committed to working through challenges, and adapting the therapeutic approach to what people really need, so we can continue the journey, side-by-side.

What happens in a Therapy Session?
If you decide to try therapy with me, the first session will be an opportunity for you to tell me your story and discuss what you would like to work on. By taking a personal history, I will be able to assess your individual needs and recommend a suitable approach. The first session is an opportunity to reach an agreement on how we will work together towards your improved health and wellbeing.
Psychotherapy is also referred to as Talk Therapy, and in most cases sessions consist of therapeutic conversations between therapist and client. Additionally, it may be effective to use other techniques, such as drawing/art, meditation or relaxation exercises, walking in nature, focusing, and other experiential activities that can facilitate the healing process.
Sessions last for 60 minutes and conducted on a weekly basis to be effective; less frequent sessions will only be considered in exceptional circumstances. Progress will be reviewed at regular intervals, to ensure we are taking the most helpful approach for achieving your goals, and responding to any changing needs.
