About me

I provide a caring and safe space in which you can explore your difficulties. With the right counsellor, counselling can be a very pleasant and enriching experience. You can get to know yourself better and appreciate your strengths.

My knowledge of psychology and new neuroscience discoveries informs my practice. Certain areas of the brain need activation for real change to take place. That will be the focus of our work together. I will explain what is happening to you, while at the same time share tools that can help you bring change to your life. One of those "tools" is just talking about things and paying attention to what feelings, thoughts or sensations arise. Another one is clinical EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) applied to counselling, which can calm down your nervous system. It can be very effective if you have experienced trauma.

The goal is to help you take back control over your life, leaving your difficulties in the past, and being open to a brighter, happier future.
