Provisional Psychologist

I take a collaborative and person-centred approach to support individuals and families in the face of everyday challenges. I am dedicated to creating a compassionate, non-judgemental, and safe therapeutic space for clients to share their experiences. I aim for my clients to feel heard, understood and respected at all times.

 

I am passionate about empowering individuals with effective strategies to achieve their goals and engage in meaningful relationships. My practice is informed by several evidence-based modalities, current research, and importantly, the individuality and autonomy of the person/s I am working with.
