Safe Therapy Space
My therapeutic approach –
I provide therapy to individuals, families and groups, and supervise clinicians and teams.
I approach my clinical work from a deep place of awareness, presence and understanding of the pain involved in being a human being.
A strong sense of honouring the being of the person whom I am fortunate to work with at my practice and the transformational capacity that they hold in the face of various internal difficulties and external events, at all stages of life, are essential factors in our collaborative work.
You are the expert of your life, and your innate wisdom, together with my clinical experience and intuition, enable walking this path safely. I experience steadiness in walking through the terrain of the internal landscape and it is humbling to walk alongside my clients in their journeys. I consider the therapeutic work one of the most important missions I have in life.
I feel inspired by the beauty of self-development and self-revelation that unfolds within the therapeutic space. Acceptance, warmth and integrity are the bedrock of our joint work. Offering a safe space for you to be exactly as you are and supporting you through the paradoxical process of change will help us arrive at the results you are looking to have from therapy.
I have a special interest in working with depression, anxiety, stress, supporting self-development, improving wellbeing, coping with workplace difficulties, life transitions and relationship problems.
Whilst my training was in Psychodynamic, Gestalt and Existential psychotherapies, through my practice I developed knowledge also in other therapeutic modalities, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Family Therapy. This means that I can work with you to tailor an integrated and effective therapeutic approach based on the difficulties you are facing, your wishes and your needs.
