Personal Statement

Psychological distress is enigmatic. On the one hand, core human emotions are much needed and quite natural, and yet, on the other hand, we can sometimes become stuck in patterns of distress that we find unhelpful and isolating. From my experiences, psychological therapy in its many forms can offer the support to navigate this confusion. At the heart of this the therapeutic relationship plays its role. As social beings, we experience life in its fullness by how we relate to, or are related to, by others and the therapeutic relationship is no different. 

What can I offer as a therapist? I am sensitive, warm and professional. I have made an enormous investment in my training and identity as a psychologist. My training has been extremely thorough and I have a broad range of clinical experience. My approach to practice centres around the shared space that therapy offers and an attempt to understand people in their fullness. We are all more than our psychological distress and with support, we can bring into light the other parts of ourselves that have been left in its shadow.
