Path to Personal Insight and Growth
"Know all the theories, master all the techniques, but as you touch a human soul, be just another human soul." - Carl Jung.
I am more than just a therapist; I am a fellow traveller on the journey of self-awareness and healing. I strive to create a therapeutic environment where you feel safe, supported, and understood.
Therapy is a personal process. I guide clients through life's challenges, aiming to help foster adaptive skills and strategies. Through therapy, one can enhance self-awareness and understanding, providing greater flexibility and ease in navigating the world.
Drawing upon evidence-based practices and practical experience, I tailor therapeutic interventions to address the distinctive needs of each individual. Empowering clients through a blend of humanistic, existential, and strengths-based approaches rooted in client-centred and solutions-focused techniques, always delivered with an informed understanding and sensitivity to trauma. I utilize techniques from a range of therapeutic modalities, including but not limited to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI).
My primary objective is to provide clients with a greater understanding of themselves and effective coping mechanisms and strategies. By doing so, I aim to promote better relational dynamics, improve mood regulation, and cultivate deeper self-awareness, self-compassion and self-acceptance. We will work toward reducing your challenges while growing into an improved self. We will work toward creating the security in the self required to step out into growth, finding the balance between acceptance and change that allows you to move beyond your challenges. The quest for authenticity and Becoming YourSelf involves courage and curiosity and means stepping into the unknown and facing the uncertainty of self-discovery.
Let the quest for self-understanding and growth begin.
