My approach

I am a person-centred and integrative therapist. This means that I believe that the most important and helpful elements of therapy are that the therapist has  a non-judgemental unconditional attitude, is genuine and is able to listen and understand. I also believe that it is important to adapt therapy and collaborate with each client to ensure the best opportunity for help.

I have a wide range of skills and knowledge and so can offer various ways of working that will suit you and support you to discover your own inner resources. 

My knowledge and skills include creative methods,  CBT, Psychodynamic, Transpersonal, Nutrition &  Mental Health, Cyberpsychology, Trauma, Bodywork, and Somatic Symptoms.
