As a counselling psychologist, my training is grounded in a client-centered approach. For me, this means offering an empowering professional relationship by incorporating best practices as well as respecting my clients’ needs and values. I believe that the relationship between the therapist and the client is central to the therapeutic process and I focus on the development of a meaningful therapeutic alliance.

 

As my client's needs are at the center of my approach, I use an integrated approach, combining different therapeutic modalities. My approach takes into consideration issues of diversity such as race, gender, disability, age, religion, sexuality, etc. I have experience working with a wide range of mental health difficulties, this includes anxiety, depression, loss, trauma, and self-esteem issues. I work primarily with adolescents, adults, and couples. I value individual differences, honesty, integrity, and the importance of finding your own path. I strongly believe people can be empowered to find their own answers. 

Core Competencies: 

  • Competent in carrying out psychological assessments, conceptualising, and implementing evidence-based psychological therapies across various modalities. These modalities include Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Short Term Psychodynamic Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, and Humanistic and Integrative Therapy.

  • Developing meaningful and authentic therapeutic relationships with clients characterised by trust, respect, and integrity. 

  • Providing culturally appropriate therapy that takes into consideration the phenomenological experience of the whole person.
