I am a UKCP registered integrative psychotherapist with 12 years experience working in Mental Health.
I can work with severe and enduring trauma or with more common difficulties such as mild to moderate anxiety and depression.
Psychotherapy is a relational space where you can feel understood with all your feelings, sometimes for the first time. In therapy you can make meaningful connections between present and past experiences to feel, as well as make sense of your sensations and feelings. This helps you understand yourself in a more wholesome way. You may discover new, often more reflective and compassionate ways of relating to yourself, and therefore others. This in turn can improve your day-to-day life, and help you to gain or regain control of some important aspects of your life.
Psychotherapy encourages long-lasting positive change.
The length of this process will depend on what you want to address or change in your life and on how you wish to approach therapy; whether by focusing on particular issues within a specific time frame and/or by looking more deeply at underlying issues. It is usual for therapy to take weeks (12 to 24 weeks); it can also take months or years. It is an individual experience.
Sometimes the hardest thing is to begin the therapeutic journey.
My work is informed by psychodynamic and attachment research as well as how to effectively work with psychological trauma. Together we aim to support a deeper and gentler way into connecting body and mind processes – we are at our best when they come together. My approach to you will be holistic and I aim to adapt to every person’s needs and rhythm.
I can work in English and in French (if French is your first language).
I embrace working with people who identify as LGBTQ.
