There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.
– Maya Angelou
I provide a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space where, together, we will reflect on your current difficulties with kindness and curiosity. A psychotherapeutic relationship is unlike any other relationship. It can provide a unique space for you to gently explore unresolved grief and trauma and reflect on limiting patterns.
I believe that everybody deserves psychotherapy, from those who simply sense that things could be better than they are now to those suffering major life disruptions. Psychotherapy is a powerfully personal exploration of your unique patterns and beliefs. By entering into psychotherapy together, I hope to provide you with an environment that supports you in seeking the insight you need to reduce your emotional and physical suffering.
I utilise a MindBody or Whole Person Treatment Approach (WPTA) to working with unresolved or chronic pain and illness. The WPTA welcomes all aspects of personhood. Together we will consider your physical and mental wellbeing, reflect on your unique story, and consider the possible connection between your health and life experiences.
Psychotherapy can cast light on old patterns and limiting beliefs that no longer serve us. Together, with curiosity and kindness, we will work to seek new understandings to help transform your life.
I work within a relational, psychodynamic frame and utilise a MindBody or Whole Person Treatment Approach. In addition, I employ some mindfulness techniques.
Psychodynamic Psychotherapy means gently considering your current difficulties through the lens of old patterns and beliefs. Self-knowledge can ease suffering and bring clarity, understanding, insight and relief to present difficulties.
I have trained and worked in psychodynamic psychotherapy since 2016. During this time, I have practiced at the ADHB in a team at Auckland Hospital and in the AUT Psychotherapy clinic. I am now in private practice.
