Counselling

“Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”

Counselling provides a safe and confidential space where you can talk about your thoughts and feelings. In this space, we work together to help you understand your problems and support you in finding solutions that work for you to improve your mental health and well-being and feel better about yourself and your life.

Together, we can explore your feelings, thoughts, and behaviours to help you gain greater self-awareness and self-worth so that you can engage with life in a more authentic way. I believe we all have unique resources and skills. We will work together to identify and use your existing resources and skills and equip you with new ones if necessary so that you can better manage life's challenges.

Areas I work in counselling (but not limited to)
  1. Grief and loss, whether it is due to the death of a loved one, the loss of a job, or another significant life change.

  2. Depression

  3. Anxiety.

  4. Neurodiversity.

  5. Relationship problems, whether it is with a partner, family member, or friend.

  6. Stress and overwhelm, whether it is due to work, school, or other life circumstances.

  7. Life transitions such as moving, starting a new job, finishing school or getting married.

  8. Self-improvement which might take the form of improvement of self-esteem, building better relationships, or achieving personal goals.

I have a particular interest in supporting people going through the grief process. Loss and grief are part and parcel of the human experience. Regardless of gender, age, race, or social status, we all experience loss, in one form or another, throughout our lifetime. 

 

As an expat, I understand the experience of adjusting to a new culture, the challenges that might arise from unrooting oneself from the country of origin and building a new life in a new country. Therefore, I also work with expats and matters linked to identity, self-esteem, self-worth, impostor’s syndrome, status, self-sabotaging, and inner critic.

My approach to therapy is client-centred, which means that I prioritise building a trusting and collaborative relationship with my clients to understand their experiences and goals. I don't believe one solution fits all, and I draw from a range of therapeutic modalities, including solution-focused therapy, family systems, psychodynamic, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, CBT, hypnotherapy, and trauma-informed care, to tailor treatment to each individual's needs.
