About me

Life can be trying at times and we could all benefit from support when this happens. It takes courage to asking for help and to begin this process. I am here to walk through this journey with you when you are ready to seek support.

In everything I do as a therapist, I believe in individuals’ ability to reach their full potential to live a fulfilling life when getting the right support. The way I support my clients is with passion, compassion and respect for their humanity, strengths and values. My aim is to enable you to identify priorities, learn new skills and achieve your goals.

My therapeutic approach focuses on supporting you to understand the factors that contribute to your difficulties and then consider proactive alternative ways of dealing with the issues identified. My main goal is to support you to make changes that will enable you to live a more fulfilled life.

The model I use can be described in 5 steps:
a. Identify the issues and difficulties you experience by listening to what you have been through

b. Clarify and decide priorities for what has to change

c. Develop a plan together taking into consideration your style and preferences

d. Learn skills and new ways to tackle the issues that cause you difficulties

e. Apply the new skills to your circumstances to develop and adopt a new approach and/or behaviour

In therapy, I believe in using what works thus I regularly read journals and attend professional training to update my skills and knowledge, to ensure I offer the most effective treatments available.
