I work with adults (18+) and offer weekly sessions to individuals on either a short-term (typically 6-24 sessions) or a long-term (24+ sessions) basis. Each session lasts 50 minutes and takes place at the same place, same time and same day of the week.
Our first meeting is a mutual assessment and towards the end of it we would decide whether to continue working together. This meeting normally involves taking a brief personal history and exploring your reasons for seeking therapy. You are under no obligation to take up therapy at this point.
If you decide to continue, we would then enter into an agreement according to what would best meet your needs and goals. This would be reviewed by us at regular intervals.
As an integrative practitioner I am guided by the idea that no single approach in therapy is best in all situations. This means that I draw upon different models of psychology and psychotherapy, which allows me to work flexibly, depending on your particular needs and experience. Broadly my approach has been influenced by psychodynamic and humanistic theories, recent findings in neuroscience and existential-phenomenological philosophy.
Life is not an easy process. Sometimes we can feel unprepared and unsure how to deal with what life throws our way. Working together, we will make sense of what you need to do to get through these difficult times. I provide a non-judgemental and supportive place for you to safely talk and be listened to.
I bring curiosity and dedication to the process of therapy and try to be as open-minded and sensitive as possible. However, I do not give advice or offer solutions. I aim to provide you with a warm, authentic relationship where you have the space to express yourself, to make discoveries and to grow. I also have a particular interest in creativity and how it can be facilitated in our work together.
