My Approach

​I have had the fortunate pleasure of working with a variety of age ranges, with people from all walks of life. I currently work with adults aged 18 and above, in person, online, or by telephone. I offer both short-term and long-term counselling, depending on what is most beneficial for your needs.

 

I see therapy as an opportunity for you to come home to yourself. To find who you truly are; your voice, and your identity. It's a place where you can explore your difficulties and tensions in life, your emotions and experiences, and begin to heal and grow.

 

It is possible to live a fulfilling life where you can improve your self-worth, stop seeking reassurance, and feel good enough. You deserve to finally find that inner peace you have long been chasing and I know that I would feel privileged for the opportunity to support you through it. I genuinely believe that everyone deserves a safe space where they can feel validated and empowered. Where they can allow themselves to experience what it is like to be fully accepted without judgement and find a pathway forward.

I have a warm and down-to-earth approach to counselling. I understand how difficult it can be to begin therapy so I do my best to support you in feeling comfortable and at ease. I challenge you where appropriate to help you develop resilience, gain self-awareness, and identify patterns. I work collaboratively with my clients but ultimately I see you as the expert of your own life.

I incorporate training and experience in both the person-centred approach and attachment-based psychotherapy.

I specialise in high-functioning anxiety and have vast experience in helping people who:

Want to let go of negative self-talk and low self-esteem

Have experienced trauma, shame, or neglect in childhood

Battle imposter syndrome, perfectionism, and/or burnout

Feel overwhelmed with stress or fears of abandonment

Have strained or unhealthy relationships

Want to gain self-acceptance and overcome their insecurities

 

Person-centred Counselling 

My core practitioner training is person-centred, which means that I work with you in a way that helps you to find a path of freedom and self-discovery. I believe that my approach encourages you to reach a greater understanding of yourself and any issues you are facing. I can support you to find who you truly are and to reconnect with your wants, needs, and values. I believe that you know yourself best and so I work from within your perspective, where you can find your answers and choose resolutions that fit and feel right for you. I believe that this can help you to expand upon your self-belief and develop more trust within your capabilities and decision-making; ultimately improving your self-confidence and boosting your self-esteem.  

Attachment-based Psychotherapy

Attachment-based psychotherapy believes in the importance of safe and secure relationships in early childhood. It proposes that our primary caregivers determine the pattern of how we interpret ourselves, others, and the world around us. My aim is to provide a safe and secure emotional experience to support you in creating a new pathway in life. By incorporating this into my approach, I can help you strengthen your relationship with yourself and others so that you can experience fewer conflicts, improve your emotional regulation and social/communication skills, and reduce feelings of anxiety.  If and when appropriate, I include psychoeducation and analogies to help things become clearer.
