About me

As a Mental Health Professional, my foundations lie in the principles of Humanistic psychology.

I work in a flexible, collaborative way and strive towards an egalitarian therapeutic alliance.

Within the therapeutic process, I pay attention to the client's narrative of sociocultural and familial DNA and influences. By working through these life experiences, I facilitate clients to weave in (or reframe) their learnings into shaping a more congruent present, one that reorients their life towards self-care, authenticity and connectedness.

Based on the client's specific needs, I apply Therapeutic approaches such Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Mindfulness Based Therapy and Clinical Hypnotherapy. When relevant, I also draw from my knowledge of 1. Attachment Theory 2. Polyvagal Theory 3. Transactional Analysis and 4. Schema Theory. This supports a deeper understanding of the client's distress and helps the me deliver more personalised support.

I enjoy integrating the knowledge of various modalities but I always aim at keeping the therapeutic process simple, client-centred and outcome-focussed.

Further information

I understand that authentic disclosure and dialogue requires an environment which is emotionally safe and physically comfortable for the client.

With recent improvements in videoconferencing technology, there are fewer differences between the experience of a video session and an in-person session.
At Flow Psychology, I also offer effective Online Therapy, ensuring that our professional values are demonstrated in all aspects of the virtual therapeutic experience. It is paramount that you feel just as understood, connected and cared for, in an online session as you would in a clinic-based (in-person) session.
