From a young age, I felt deeply curious about people and our relationships with each other. Initially, I pursued this interest in my training and work as an actor and found rich territory in which to explore storytelling and the many ways we communicate. As time went on, it felt increasingly important to me to work directly with people questioning or struggling, and I began my training as a therapist.
Having qualified in the dialogue between psychodynamic and person-centred therapy, I offer both short and long-term counselling to individuals. My intention is to provide a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space within which we can explore the issues you are facing and seek a way forward at a pace which feels right for you.
Within the therapeutic relationship, I consider myself a facilitator and an active witness; someone to think with and offer challenge when the time feels right. I work collaboratively, so will check in regularly to see how you feel we are progressing, aiming always to receive you with curiosity, empathy and thoughtfulness.
Together we will work to explore where you are struggling or stuck, seeking deeper understanding as well as the possibility of healing and change.
