Counselling and Psychotherapy Approach:
“I am passionate about mental fitness! The kind of work I do primarily builds up mental wellbeing so that the client develops better coping skills and a sense of their own resilience without any judgement.
As a therapist I work mainly from a person centred approach, developing connection and open communication. Having been trained as an integrative psychotherapist I truly believe no one style works for everyone and I use an eclectic mix of theories. I often bring in aspects of psychodynamic, humanistic, CBT, Gestalt therapy, mindfulness and psychoanalysis. I will help the client understand why their life is the way they are and bring unconscious behaviours into awareness while improving self care.”
