I am a warm and empathetic Psychologist who is willing to meet you where you are at currently and work towards the direction you want to take. I believe that the ideal recipe for effective therapy is self-honesty, commitment and an authentic relationship between the therapist and client. My approach towards clients could best be described as direct and challenging but also authentic and nurturing. I am enthusiastic and I love what I do.
I am committed to providing respectful and non-judgmental support to my clients and am committed to delivering the best quality evidence-based treatment.
I have over a decade of experience in the field of Psychology which includes training by Dr Michael D. Yapko in Clinical Hypnosis.
I use a variety of approaches that I believe will be most effective for my clients based on both the issue I am working with and the experience I have in understanding what will best suit the person I am assisting. These approaches include:
- Clinical Hypnosis
- Schema Focused Therapy
- Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
- Commitment Therapy
- Mindfulness Training and Values identification
- Structured Problem Solving
- Dialectical Behaviour Therapy
- Motivational Interviewing
- Solution Focused Therapy
- Positive Psychology
- Goal Setting; and
- Emotion-Focused Therapy.
During my spare time, I enjoy being with the people I love, travelling, exploring markets, antique shops, watching documentaries, movies and I’m particularly passionate about food.
