“Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” – Carl Jung. Therapy provides a unique opportunity to have someone walk alongside you and help light the way as you forge your own path toward self-discovery, healing, and change. Your courage brought you here. Let’s take the next step together.

Online Therapy

Therapy provides a safe place to explore aspects of patterns that have begun to feel problematic in our present lives. As we start to understand ourselves better, we discover a greater sense of agency, and open up opportunities for new ways of being in the world—ways that can feel more authentic and less “stuck”.

I was initially trained as an engineer and worked in the field for 17 years. The most satisfying part of my career was interacting with people—clients, team members, the public. I have always been intensely passionate about what makes people tick, including myself. My own personal journey in therapy helped me turn this passion into a new, rewarding career.

I know from experience that therapy is not always easy. Because of this, I consider it a true privilege to witness a client’s process of inner discovery and change.

What happens in a therapy session

I tend to liken the process of psychodynamic psychotherapy to that of an archaeological dig. One gently brushes the soil away to discover something, or a multitude of things, that at first might not appear to be connected or have much meaning. As more depth is achieved, one starts to discover links between these previously unrelated things. The more we explore, the closer we get to the whole picture. The result is a deeper and broader understanding of self, which is an important resource for guiding your living, and your relationship with yourself and others.

This process takes time. It is important that we work at a pace that is comfortable and safe enough to allow your vulnerable thoughts and feelings to start showing themselves during the session. This is a very courageous endeavour for you, the client. In turn, I will hold a space for you that is compassionate, curious, and non-judgemental.
