I am dedicated to fostering a compassionate, trusting, and authentic therapeutic relationship with each client. My approach is person-centred, empathetic, and collaborative, aiming to balance deep reflection with practical strategies for effective change. In sessions, clients will be welcomed into a safe and open space where they feel supported and truly heard; I deeply respect the courage it takes to begin therapy. Using various evidence-based modalities and the latest research, I tailor my approach to align with clients’ therapeutic goals.

 

Echoing the words of psychiatrist Irvin Yalom, I consider my clients and myself “as fellow travellers”. It is a great privilege to accompany clients on their unique journey, sharing in the human experience and guiding them towards meaningful change and personal growth.
