About me

Taking the first step towards finding the right therapist can feel like stepping into unknown territory. I understand this journey comes with its uncertainties, many questions, and perhaps even a bit of apprehension. It's a significant decision, demonstrating your commitment to self-care. In today's world, filled with endless pressures and demands, choosing to seek help for your mental health is a big step. It not only shows your resilience but also your determination to pursue a happier, more fulfilling life. You don't have to undertake this alone.

Identifying, distinguishing, and expressing emotions can challenge many. If you resonate with this, I might be able to help. My extensive therapeutic training allows me to customise my approach to meet your needs, especially when dealing with emotions that are difficult to understand. This process aims to improve your ability to express your emotions, recognising the vital connection between your physical and mental well-being."

I believe in fostering a therapeutic partnership that’s built on trust, respect, and collaboration. Together, we can explore the challenges you’re facing, identify your strengths and work towards the transformation you seek. It’s about finding resonance and aligning paths for self-discovery and growth.
