I have extensive training in many different therapeutic approaches but I will always start our journey together by establishing a clear shared understanding of what it is that has brought you into therapy and what you need from it. From there we will develop the most appropriate approach to meet your needs. I am trained to work with CBT, couple relationships (systemic therapy), psychodynamic therapy and in the person centred approach. As a pluralist, I will select the most appropriate approach from this palate to best suit your needs.
My approach to psychotherapy is based on an understanding that all our experiences affect how our brain has become wired to respond and react in different situations. The brain is a wonderful resource for us but it can sometimes (oftentimes) get in the way of us living our fullest life - it can make us fearful and anxious when we don't need to be, it can cause a darkness to come over us that makes the future feels hopeless, it can lead us to over-react to situations, to seek destructive substances and behaviours or to keep engaging in painful and unrewarding relationship patterns.
Much of the therapeutic process is about learning how to regain control of our thoughts, feelings, relationships and behaviours so that we are better equipped to live our fullest and best life. Often this involves recovering from past hurts and traumas, or learning new ways of thinking and keeping ourselves emotionally secure.
Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, I will be able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. Psychotherapy can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.
I have an MA in relationship therapy and work extensively with couples and individuals to sort out relationship difficulties. Relationship counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held with both couples and is a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship.
Please contact me with any questions. Working out how to pick a therapist can feel daunting or even overwhelming. Together we can have a discussion about the best way to help you access the support you are looking for.
