My secret talent:
I am a passionate conversationalist who loves to engage people and learn about who they are.
What’s it like to be in a room with me?
I see myself as a warm, engaging and nurturing person, with a strong desire to support you over the course of your therapeutic journey. I provide therapy in a nonjudgmental and friendly environment where you feel heard, understood and validated, allowing you to share your experiences in a safe space. I believe that therapy is a stepping stone to discovering yourself and gaining a better understanding of your thoughts and feelings in order to lead a happier, more fulfilling life. My therapeutic approach is client-centred, empathetic, strengths based and solution focused. Therapy begins with you – your needs, concerns, goals, and history are all taken into careful consideration before deciding on the therapeutic approach which best meets your needs. I understand that each person has a unique set of circumstances and I strive for the best possible outcomes through collaboration and care.
What’s my non-negotiable when it comes to taking care of my own mental health?
Maintaining my own mental health often starts with taking time out for myself and having a
work/life/family balance. Self care is also about setting and maintaining boundaries, and learning to say no. Spending time with my children is vital and the occasional beach holiday also helps.
