We all have the potential to thrive in environments that are accepting and that feel safe to us. Creating a therapy space that allows this to be possible is of utmost importance to me. Within this space, you will be able to become more present, more aware of your thoughts and feelings and more able to take responsibility for your life choices. Whatever challenges you may be facing or relational difficulties you are experiencing that have contributed to you considering a therapy, will be openly met with care and compassion.
Psychotherapy is a second career for me. Prior to embarking on this rewarding professional path, I worked, for many years, in the hospitality industry. This experience has informed my diverse therapy practice, in many profound ways. I trained at The Centre for Psychotherapy for eight years, which stretched my academic and emotional capacity. My approach is client-centered, relational and attachment focused, while empathy, compassion, creativity and humor play important roles within it. I also bring valuable life experience and a long personal therapeutic history, to my work, which has allowed me to possess a deep understanding of what it is like to sit in the client chair.
Language I work in: English
Issues I work with include:
I believe that nothing is trivial within the therapy setting. My ears are always perked up to these nuances that can lead to a greater understanding of your lived experience. It is my responsibility, as your therapist, to be available to you, to support and challenge you as a catalyst for your development. I will provide the scaffold for you to feel that you are not defined by your emotion al struggles, what you look like, your perceived weaknesses or your past. All of what you possess and have experienced are unique to you and are weaved together in creating your unique story.
