When we experience anxiety, depression, relationship issues, bereavement, work-related problems, health concerns or life-transitions, we can feel very disempowered, lonely and, sometimes, at loss. We ask ourselves why and how things became the way they are, and what we can do to feel differently, if not change them. Friends or family might be around, but we might feel unable to tell them what is happening to us. Sometimes, we might even be unable to formulate it within ourselves.
By offering you a dedicated time and space, my aim is to promote and support your psychological and emotional wellbeing, and help you make sense of your unique life experience. This can be on a short-term or a long-term basis.
Through a dialogical encounter, therapy allows new insights to arise and helps create emotional tools to approach a variety of issues with different attitudes, greater confidence, understanding and self-knowledge.
I have experience in helping people deal with a variety of issues, including:
- Loss and bereavement
- Trauma and abuse
- Relationships and parenting
- Depression (including post-natal depression)
- Eating disorders
- Chronic and life-threatening illness
- Infertility problems and sexuality
- Mid-life crisis and life transitions
- Self-esteem and creativity
- Work related problems
I practice from an integrative perspective, which means that I combine different models of therapy. My work is particularly informed by the humanistic and psychodynamic approach.
