Who am I as a therapist?
Over the past 19 years, I have been working both in the UK and Canada in the area of family and children’s services, where I have had the privilege of building trusting relationships and working collaboratively with individuals and families. In this role, I have gained significant experience in supporting clients struggling with anxiety, emotional regulation, depression, anger, attachment disruption, trauma and family related difficulties. I have had the opportunity to engage with them in supportive counselling and advocacy, along with evidence-based therapeutic approaches, which have included mindfulness techniques and solution-focused brief therapy, all while focusing on family and individual strengths and resourcefulness.
I truly believe that life is precious and my focus, while working from a strength-based and trauma-informed perspective, has been to increase family and individual functioning, despite the challenges that life brings.
I understand how scary it can be to take the first step and reach out for help. My goal is to provide a calm and safe space where I can really get to know you. My approach is supportive and non-judgemental. I will meet you where you are at with your goals. My hope is that we can work together as you navigate your personal growth and achieve a greater sense of peace and well-being.
