Beginning therapy for the first time can sometimes feel daunting and that is a completely normal response.
As a counsellor I am aware of the stigma attached to having therapy. It's important to remember your experience largely centers around what you would like it to be.
I aim to foster an open and free space where you can discuss any negative thoughts and feelings, navigate life changes, or deal with past trauma.
You know yourself best, it is my job to help empower you with the tools you need to create positive change in your life.
What to expect
With my experience working with clients from a range of different backgrounds I am capable of building a therapeutic alliance with a diverse range of people to understand their inner worlds.
Working interculturally I have gained extensive experience with people who are interested in looking at their identity. Part of this way of working means we may focus on how you see yourself and where you feel you fit into today’s society.
The approach to my practice is integrative which allows me to draw from various therapeutic modalities to tailor therapy to your individual and unique needs. Some modalities I utilise include psychodynamic, mindfulness, person centred and elements of existentialism.
My integrative model means we will look at your conditions of worth alongside your unconscious processes. We will look at your value systems and work psychodynamically to identify where the foundations of these lay.
The therapeutic relationship is the cornerstone of therapeutic change and i will offer you unconditional positive regard to counteract your conditions of worth.
Most importantly I want you to use the therapy room to be your most unapologetic self feeling free of judgement.
