About me

We all experience anxiety, stress and difficulties in our relationships at different times in our lives. Having a space to voice and explore these anxieties and feelings could bring clarity and change. I hope to provide a space that feels empathic and safe.

My approach to psychoanalysis is integrative and relational. Working in an embodied way, I value and respect the individual as a whole; body mind and soul.

Respecting you as individual is paramount, keeping in mind differences be it, culture, family, sexuality, beliefs values and everything that makes us human.

I feel the therapeutic relationship is vital for change and transformation. So I seek to create a space where the clients feelings and experiences can be explored through a collaborative process.

As each person and experience is unique, each therapy process is unique. I work in an open, relational way, adapting to the needs of each client. Mindful of culture, sexuality, values and beliefs

The first few sessions would generally be a 'getting to know' each other. Allowing you to get a feel for how I work and looking at areas we may want to focus on initially and how to progress.

'There can be no transforming darkness into light and of apathy into movement without emotion ' - Carl Jung.
