How I work

I believe the quality of the therapeutic relationship is important and I aim to develop a relationship based on respect, trust and honesty. I am aware that, at first, you might feel anxious, vulnerable or sometimes ashamed about sharing personal aspects of your life with me and my commitment is to offer you a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space, where you can feel cared for and free to explore your experience of life and express your thoughts and feelings about the difficulties you are facing.

What matters is what is important to you, no matter how big or small it might look to others. I work with what you choose to bring to our sessions. I am committed to help you find your own answers as ultimately only you really know what it is like to be in your life.

While most of the work takes place through talking, when appropriate I can also offer more creative ways of working (art, play, poetry, music…) as sometimes it is difficult to find words that describe how we feel.

My therapy approach is integrative, this means that I am able to draw from different models in order to adapt to your individual needs. My core model is a combination of Person-centered, Psychodynamic, Existentialism and Cognitive Behavioural Therapies but is also inspired by aspects of art and play therapy, Transaction Analysis, Gestalt, Bodypsychoterapy and Jungian ideas.
