As a Psychologist I believe in creating a comfortable frame for people to explore personal challenges. I tend to be less symptom focused and more person focused, meaning that I value the unique complexities inherent in being human, so aim to enhance self-understanding as a tool to foster personal growth through adversity.
I draw from a variety of theories in my work, but mainly use a narrative approach, which simply put, explores the meaning that we create through the stories we construct and tell about ourselves and the world. Through a process of uncovering these stories, I provide guidance on how to re-author those that may be the source of distress or emotional pain.
I have a special interest in sexuality and gender identity issues in adolescents and adults, as well as child work through play therapy.
