Attending the first appointment with a Psychologist can be daunting and I commend you for taking this step. It can be difficult to let oneself be vulnerable and open up to a stranger. People come to counselling for different reasons such as changes in life, problems at work or home. Ultimately, I believe we all want the same… we want to experience freedom from whatever bothers us and live a fulfilling life.
I have almost 15 years of experience in psychology and counselling is my passion. I have shared the journey of self-discovery and growth with people from all walk of life such as Community Mental Health Patients, managers of large companies, students, jobseekers, emergency workers, offenders… (the list is truly endless!). I come to realise that my clients have been the best teachers and I am deeply grateful to them.
I have completed many professional development trainings and I do have quite a few certificates in evidence-based interventions; however, I believe that the best we can offer as therapists is to be warm, empathic and genuine.
My main modalities are Schema Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy and Internal Family Systems.
I have learnt that the past is almost always having an impact on our present; luckily, we can break free from it and develop our true potentials. I look forward meeting you!
