About me

I work with individuals who are experiencing emotional, behavioural and psychological problems such as depression, anxiety, panic attacks, low self-esteem, stress, relationship difficulties, family breakdowns, eating disorders, amongst others. I provide a safe place where clients can share their worries, issues and problems in order to come in contact with what is going on in their lives and to be able to resolve them.

Each client is different so I tailor each session around what's going on for them. I practice Mindfulness and Existential therapy which helps you to focus on what's happening in the moment. I also specialise in Attachment which is the basis of any relationship and can help me see where the strengths and difficulties are in how you form relationships. The most important relationship is the one you have with yourself and by entering therapy this will allow you to know yourself better which will give you the confidence to choose and construct healthy relationships.

I believe that building a good rapport between myself and my client is the building block of a good therapeutic relationship. To be able to share the journey with my client is by far the most beautiful experience, albeit being painful.

Psychotherapy fosters self-growth and equips you with the skills to live a more fulfilling life.

I offer both short and long term therapy, sessions are held once a week and are 50 minutes long. I abide by the BACP professional code of ethics.
