Not everything that is faced can be changed but nothing can be changed until it is faced.
I believe in seeking value in existence. I am passionate about using my counselling/psychoanalytic skills and knowledge to add value and meaning to human existence, to facilitate acceptance and to enhance my acceptance, self-reflection and respect for others. My clients experience therapy as an empowering therapeutic alliance.
I provide counselling/psychotherapy to individuals, groups and organisation. I practice an integrative approach that is a mix of person-centred, psychotherapy and existential psychotherapy. It allows the clients to work on their own pace to move in past, present and future. That helps them to achieve self-awareness and psychological understanding that could guide them through their life.
My approach is based on the concept of giving the power back to the client that enhances their self-worth and improves their relationships. My therapy provides them with a background to see how they are with other relationships and vice versa.
I work with wide range of issues and presenting problems experienced by clients coming from diverse cultural and spiritual backgrounds. i provide culturally and spiritually sensitive counselling.
I believe that maintaining client's confidentiality and trust is the first and the foremost requirement of ethical, sensitive and therapeutic experience. Therapy can only happen when there is trust between the client and the therapist. This allows the client to be true to themselves, allowing healing and acceptance to take place.
My belief in seeking value in human existence results in client's enhanced self-esteem. That is why I receive very positive feedback from my clients.
I also provide personal therapy and supervision to counselling students.
