"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us"

Sigmund Freud



Therapy can be a valuable experience for various reasons. It might arise from a feeling of being adrift, a requirement for assistance in navigating life's obstacles, a longing for a secure environment to freely express oneself, or a challenge in verbalizing troubling thoughts.

Therefore, finding a qualified professional you experience as friendly, warm and empathic, who will make you feel heard and understood without fear of criticism, is crucial in helping you uncover a new, deeper understanding of yourself and help you make sense of your experiences.

No matter the motivation behind seeking therapy, I provide a serene environment that encourages creative thinking. My laid-back approach appreciates and values individuality and diversity, focusing on understanding you as a complete person.

Together, we will explore and make sense of emotions and behaviours. We'll delve into how self-beliefs and perceptions of life influence the choices we make, impacting our relationships with both ourselves and others. Our journey will involve examining how thoughts, feelings (or their absence), and behaviours may sometimes work against each other in unhelpful ways.

Approaching this process with gentleness, we can uncover a broader array of choices. Through this exploration, you may find empowerment to engage with life with increased confidence, spontaneity, and hope.
