“My initial aim as a therapist is to create a safe, collaborative and nurturing space to hear about, and begin to make sense of, the difficulties a client chooses to bring. I take a person centred approach to therapy, drawing from evidence, extensive experience and training. I have a strong foundation in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), but am able to flexibly integrate, and move between, third wave approaches to support the different recovery journeys of each person I meet with. I am experienced working with people with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, interpersonal struggles, identity concerns and trauma. I am passionate about my work with young adults, and mindful of the multi-factored stressors, transitions, relational and developmental concerns that can impact heavily upon this age group”.
