As an experienced Counselling Psychologist, I work in an integrated, holistic and intuitive way, foregrounding compassion and empathy. First and foremost, I aim to create strong, trusting, authentic therapeutic relationships with my clients. Taking careful note of their needs and preferences, I apply my professional judgement and insight towards carefully devising individually-tailored treatment plans that incorporate a creative approach. My diverse training background has exposed me to a wide array of therapeutic models that I draw on in my work. Much of my therapeutic work is rooted in the principles of Ego State, Narrative and the Compassion-Focused therapies. Over the years, I have become more and more convinced of the effectiveness and value of longer-term therapies. I work with both children and adults, mostly in areas related to adjustment, life transitions, psycho-emotional development and growth, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues and life transitions. I have a special interest in life-phase challenges - especially so those related to retirement and older age.
