My philosophy as a therapist is centred around self awareness and personal growth. Both my personal life and professional training experience in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy enables me to work with people that have suffered past trauma such as sexual, physical and emotional neglect. I have a clear intent of providing a safe environment for clients to increase their self awareness, to heal and to embark on a path of personal growth that also has a positive impact on all those around them.
I believe all problems presenting in the present such as depression, anxiety, addiction or grief connect back to our early life experiences and subsequent life events, which may then drive our behaviour in the present. My journey with clients is one of exploration and self healing.Along with a depth of theoretical knowledge I also bring a great passion and energy to my sessions. I believe in personal freedom and empowerment of self and I have learned over the years that to touch the soul of another human being and to co-create positive change is the most valuable commodity on on earth.
