Philosophy

“Our life is what our thoughts make it” – Marcus Aurelius

At times, your inner world can feel out of balance. You may feel lonely or disconnected and just not certain how to make things right. Through therapy, we can look at alternative ways of thinking and discover more positive ways of feeling and behaving.

Approach

Being listened to and understood by a caring professional in an empathic therapeutic relationship can bring tremendous relief from emotional conflict and pain. I approach therapy with professionalism and a sense of humour, while providing a supportive and confidential environment.
My therapeutic approach can be best described as integrative (CBT, ACT, DBT, SFT, CFT), tailoring therapy to the unique needs and goals of each client.

Motivation

I have always enjoyed talking to people and hearing about their life experiences. I found that it would touch me deeply when someone was struggling and that I had a strong desire to help them feel better. I soon realised that becoming a psychologist was the right career path for me – helping others through their life issues. Everyone has a personal best – I am a firm believer of that – and I strive to help my clients reach theirs.

About Me

Prior to moving to England, I lived in Portugal and South Africa. These three unique countries hold a special place in my heart, as they have contributed to my growth and finding myself.

I qualified in 2006 and have since worked in several roles across the NHS and independent sector.

When not working, I love to spend time with my family and my dachshund, be it watching a good movie on Netflix or engaging in an outdoor activity. I also really enjoy reading, photography and listening to music. More recently, I have discovered a new passion: experimenting with new recipes!

I had a course of CBT Counselling with The Harley Psychology & Therapy Group (Richmond) and although it didn’t provide me with the quick fix miracle solution I was hoping for, it has made my problems feel more manageable.
