Therapists vary in their philosophies, methods and schools of thought. I work using an integrative process, combining dynamic supportive psychotherapy and cognitive behavioral approaches. This means I get to know you as a whole person and then decide, together with you, which approach works best for helping you achieve your personal goals. I use a variety of powerful techniques such as guided imagery, role-play, drawing, dialogue and reflective conversation.
I work in a way that acknowledges your uniqueness, which enables you to learn, grow and feel supported in your journey. Together, we explore whatever is challenging you and holding you back. I offer a safe place where you are accepted for who you are and listened to without judgement. Sessions take place weekly and I offer daytime and evening appointments.
I appreciate how hard it can be to take that first step and start therapy. The relationship that develops between client and therapist is a very important aspect of our work and it is vital that you choose someone you are comfortable working with. I adhere to the professional therapeutic code of ethics and you can be reassured that all information you disclose is treated as confidential.
