Special interest areas

I am specialised in the treatment of moderate to severe depression in adults. I also have particular experience in working with interpersonal difficulties including relationship issues, life transitions or grief. I am well experienced in working with victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse and am experienced working with adults from different genders, ages, socioeconomic status, ethnic or racial identity and disability backgrounds .

Personal Statement

I specialise in helping people overcome and gain recovery from depression and improve their relationships. I have been doing this for the past 17 years. During this time I have developed my style of therapy to support clients to achieve insights and awareness to their difficulties as well as learning strategies to live a more fulfilling life.

Depression could occur as a result of different life events including colossal changes, conflicts, loss or isolation. This could impact the way we related to ourselves and also others.

My practice is primarily formed in a combination of the Person Centred and Interpersonal approach which allows clients to regain autonomy to monitor, cope and manage their symptomatic depression. This process happens collaboratively throughout the course of treatment. 

I help clients to recognise, understand and explore their underlying emotions contributing to their depressive symptoms. I also helped them to developed strategies to gradually overcome their depression.
