Life has its ups and downs. It can be beautiful one minute, heartbreaking the next, and everything in between- the stress and joys of everyday life. I am passionate about supporting people of all ages through their experience of life, by drawing on inner strengths, embracing vulnerability, celebrating uniqueness, and developing a sense of purpose.
My overall ethos is humanistic and strengths-based. I start from a place of compassion, respect, non-judgment, and a gentle curiosity about what's going on for you and/or your child. I bring to each session a warm demeanour, an inquiring mind, and a genuine desire to contribute to your personal growth.
I respect that everyone is different, and what works for one may not work for another- there is no "one-size-fits-all" approach to therapy! Drawing on various evidence-based techniques, I tailor my approach to suit the age and individual needs of each client, and encourage feedback to ensure we are on the same page. I place high value on the therapeutic relationship, as this forms the foundation for our work together.
I believe that each setback and challenge offers opportunities for learning and change. Vulnerability and adversity is all part of this amazing thing we call life, yet sometimes we need a little help to get through these moments. I am interested to hear where you are and where you want to be… and work together to bridge the gap.
