I provide a safe space where you can explore your life and your problems. I work from a deep respect for you and who you are. My role is to help you to find what is right for you as an individual.
How I Work
We all have our struggles, this is normal. The question is then, how to find a way through those struggles, how to manage them better. Therapy can help you develop a positive sense of yourself so you can follow the path you choose. It can help you learn to manage the negative feelings associated with your struggles; to recognise, understand and change self-defeating patterns, to heal past pain. It can help unlock and foster the inner strength needed to learn new ways of behaving in relationships and to deal with crises, thereby boosting self-esteem and feelings of self-worth. As a therapist, my focus is to help you understand yourself so that you can work on the issues affecting you.I am warm, easygoing, down-to-earth and very engaged, and the way I work is to establish a strong connection and relationship between us. We work together.
It is important to see for yourself whether you feel you can work with me, so the first session is a short half-hour try-out and is free. After this first session, we will discuss if you feel we are a good fit and if you would like to continue. I work both short-term and long-term according to your needs and wants.
You can talk about anything that is troubling you. You can face a crisis or make a life-changing decision, change your self-image and the way you relate to people. All in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
