“To my mind, in dealing with individuals, only individual understanding will do.” (Jung)
Each of us are on our own personal journey with different and unique starting points. I believe counselling is a process that can help you understand and navigate life’s many difficulties and crisis, so that you are able to become empowered and to move forward. Ultimately it can enable you to integrate your own experiences and the many aspects of yourself.
In my therapeutic practice I work with compassion and empathy. Counselling can promote self-acceptance and skillful will, and empower people to discover and fulfil their true potential.
Each person’s narrative is different. Therefore I work integratively, which means working flexibly and using different approaches in order to meet your individual needs. Whether you feel you are stagnating and reproducing the same patterns in key aspects of your life, feeling anxious or depressed, or you are going through a life crisis such as a relationship issue, we can explore these deeply within the space of therapy. Similarly our sessions can explore past traumas so that you may finally heal and reclaim your present and future.
In our sessions, I endeavour to be side by side with you, accompanying you without judgement whilst you explore your personal journey.
I work flexibly from my family home. I offer short and long term counselling and also offer some low cost counselling depending on availability.

My personal history of emigration means that I have a strong respect for difference and multiculturalism. I keep in mind that no-one but the person themselves can truly know what the experience of prejudice was like for them.
I can offer sessions in French or Italian.
