    Clients often ask, “When will I feel better or change?”—not realizing that just by commencing therapy, they have already taken the first steps towards the healing, growth, and change they are looking for.

    Psychotherapy can help to ease present suffering and heal deep-rooted past traumas buried in the unconscious that inform present suffering. Feelings and thoughts that are consciously unavailable are out of our control. Through dialogue we work together to make conscious what is unconscious.

    Deep, attuned listening provided by the therapist can enable you to feel heard and seen in a new way. This can facilitate a feeling of relief and lightness in you just after the first few sessions. It can also help you to begin to deeply connect to and know yourself. This is a knowing that brings about changes in your old patterns of feeling, thinking, and behaving. Therapy can enable you to reach important life decisions more intentionally and consciously, and promote self-actualization.

    Change is about how much of ourselves we both invest in your therapy. My invitation to you is to try to trust the process. Consider this: you’ve been living a certain way your entire life. Can it change just after a couple of months of sessions? Deep and lasting change takes time.

    I hold your aspirations, strengths, and challenges closely while working with you. This forms the basis of our work together. I am relational and interactive. My naturally warm and genuine self is very present during therapy and enables me to connect to you authentically.

    I work with you at a pace you are comfortable with and modify my approach as per your needs and challenges. We explore through dialogue. I see you as the expert on your life and experiences and myself as the facilitator. I listen to you with compassionate curiosity and openness, and I ask questions. This helps me understand you deeply. I also make observations when needed. I welcome and value your feedback, both about me and our work together. This feedback guides our work, and helps me in the therapeutic space to support your growth suitably.

    Our collaboration can help you develop self-awareness and facilitate your efforts toward change.

    I completed an M.B.A. as a young adult and worked internationally in the corporate sector in finance and hospitality for almost twelve years. During this time, contact with a wide array of people in different settings enhanced my natural capacity to be very open and flexible. Despite this benefit, I did not feel I belonged in the corporate world. I thus entered the field of psychology and psychotherapy, after certain challenges in my life journey lead me to seek therapy. This eventually helped me find my calling in life; working as a psychotherapist to support you in your journey of healing and growth.

    I have trained and am competent in Psychodynamic psychotherapy, while I have also acquired knowledge and experience in the application of CBT and mindfulness. I worked with children by observing them and via play therapy in the earlier part of my professional training as a psychotherapist. This experience now enables me to understand my adult clients more comprehensively and deeply. Regardless of my approach, I always consider your unique context, past and present. An anti-oppressive stance informs my therapeutic work, which emphasizes the need for awareness and respect of differences and diversity. I consider ways that my therapeutic approach can be modified when working with varied individuals. Your therapy is about you, your needs and wishes and about me holding you very closely in my mind throughout our work together.
