Sometimes we find ourselves in distress and feel lost as to how to move forward. My intention in therapy is to work with you to make sense of your particular struggle, to understand what it is that is keeping you stuck, and to help foster change through insight, self-acceptance and understanding.
Life inevitably gets rocky for us all at times. Therapy helps us identify how we can become more of an ally to ourselves so we can better navigate life’s challenges.
Our suffering can be a result of difficult life events, a specific issue we are struggling with, or a general ongoing sense of dissatisfaction or unhappiness. Whether this distress is related to our relationship with ourselves or our relationship with others, I believe it is signalling that something needs attention.
Therapy is a courageous journey into the depths of yourself to find more clarity and meaning. As a therapist I take this journey beside you to understand your unique life story. I work with you towards a deeper understanding of your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and the beliefs and patterns that lie outside of your conscious awareness, shedding those that no longer serve you and fostering ways that do.
Outcomes of therapy can include an easing of suffering, more clarity and purpose, healthier relationships, increased ability to maintain inner equilibrium, resilience, presence and enjoyment in life.
I welcome people of all ages, cultures and genders.
