My Approach to Therapy

I provide both online and in-person short and long-term therapy. My approach is customised to help individuals overcome challenges and achieve healing and personal growth.

My therapeutic approach is based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR). I also draw from Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Internal Family Systems (IFS) to tailor my methods to meet each client’s unique needs.
