Philosophy

I believe that what we achieve inwardly, will change our outer reality. Investing in one’s mental health and wellbeing is one of the most valuable things we can do for ourselves. Therapy can provide the opportunity to look deeply into experiences, emotions, and gain insight into personal growth.

I work from an integrative style of therapy. I utilize a variety of skills and techniques to best suit each individual client’s needs. Some of the therapeutic theories that I draw upon are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychodynamic, Emotionally Focused, Mindfulness, Dialectical Behavior, Satir and many others.

I work tirelessly to support my clients in achieving their goals and reducing their distress. I believe that the most fundamental step towards effective therapy is a strong and trusting therapeutic alliance, therefore it is a top priority in the work I do. I operate from a collaborative approach to therapy, whereby clients are fully involved in the therapeutic process, as this facilitates the most success and growth. My overall goal is to facilitate a therapeutic process which empowers clients to find happiness, balance, health, and well-being.
