About me

Are you experiencing Anxiety, Depression or Stress? Are you facing challenging life transitions or feeling stuck? Have you had a significant loss and struggling with grief? Talking to a counsellor can help.

I am highly empathic and take a gentle, non-judgemental but realistic approach to help people work through the difficulties they might have. I have been trained in the Integrative Approach: Person Centred, Psychodynamic, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapies. This allows me to adapt my approach towards clients individual needs,  goals and expectations for therapeutic intervention, finding what works best for you.

My aim is to establish a good working relationship, to provide safe, confidential and comfortable environment for your therapeutic process. Each therapeutic journey is unique, sometimes it's about healing, sometimes it's about discovery or change: my role is to support you through your explorations, to help you gain a deeper understanding of self: your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and encourage to to explore different possibilities.

I offer short term and long term therapy.
