My journey in therapy began at a young age, as I have always been fascinated by the mechanics of the mind, psychology and human behaviour and I wanted to help people in a more in depth way. Since then, I have enjoyed helping a wide range of people from all walks of life get to a better psychological and emotional pIace, with most of my experience being from my work with adolescents and young adults (12-30). I feel very grateful to have met, and continue to meet, such amazing people who let me into their lives.
I believe, and practice from, a holistic, humanistic approach. It is important to recognise that everyone's experiences are unique and valid, and that there is no one-size-fits-all definition of what is "normal" when it comes to mental health. As we are all unique people, therapy is also not a one-size-fits-all relationship and drawing on a range of techniques helps me tailor the best approach to help you move forward, predominantly focussing on the relationship as the most healing tool.
When I'm not in session, I'm either hanging out with my two cats, hanging out with dogs, or have my nose stuck in a book.
