I’m here to offer my clients a welcoming and secure space where they can feel free to talk. It’s very important to me that we build a strong trusting alliance, so you feel safe to open up, as well as willing and able to consider making real changes.
Earning the right to practice as a counselling psychologist and psychotherapist requires a great deal of self-analysis, along with solid ongoing professional training. I do both.
Before training to become a psychologist and psychotherapist, I worked in banking services and life insurance. I was a trainer and managed various projects.
I was also the CEO of a charity for children diagnosed with critical illnesses. The therapeutic relationships I built with the young people and their parents helped me develop a great sense of patience, perseverance and belief in the human capacity to heal.
My way of working is safe, relational, non-judgemental, thoughtful and reflective. I give you the chance to work through difficult emotions and traumatic life experiences in a deeply personal way, with an experienced helping hand at your side as you grow stronger and heal.
