How I work

I practice a combination of modalities all with a pull towards systemic, psychodynamic therapies that are embodied and deeply relational. I bring in elements of attachment theory, narrative, gestalt and jungian therapy as well as family constellation therapy.

My work is deeply entrenched in the belief if one person struggles, so do their loved ones. We all have the potential to thrive, even during times of great adversity. Psychotherapy offers an alternative pathway, one that can be profoundly life changing and validating.

In a session I pay attention to the ‘here and now’ as well as look at patterns that emerge in your relationships – with friends, colleagues, partners, family and with yourself. These offer glimpses of your inner experience.

As well as talk therapy, sometimes I will work with play therapy or use items to be a ‘representative’ of other people in your life.

My way of working is not a one-session-wonder. It takes time and commitment to evoke lasting change, from the inside out, rather than from the inside in. Each session is tailored to the person or people who sit before me and can deeply transform client’s lives.
