What do I do?

I began my therapeutic work in 2003. At first, however, I studied the law. It took me time to notice that it was not the most suitable way of life for me, it took more time for me to figure out what the right path may be. However, going through the process of discovering this path has been invaluable.

In my work, I assist clients in their journey of discovery and transformation.

My job is to alleviate a person(s) suffering and pain. Often the pain appears when our current ability to cope with a challenge is exceeded by the intensity/severity/chronicity of our situation.

Feeling overwhelmed cuts us off our own internal resources. My job as a therapist, whether working with individuals, couples, families, or groups, is to reconnect you with your own wisdom, experiences, knowledge, or skills and based on those build new resources.

I have a versatile set of skills I will be drawing on when working with you.

My background is in psychology (MSc), systemic family psychotherapy (MSc), and EMDR therapy.

I am as well NVR UK Association accredited  (Non-Violent Resistance) for families; Facilitator, Coordinator, and Supervisor

I have always been drawn to non-mainstream methods; in my work, I combine the best of the two worlds. Therefore, I offer trauma treatment like AIT (Advanced Integrative Therapy) or NLP, Time Line Therapy, Focusing, or Mindfulness for Anxiety and Depression.

I also work with Brief Solution Focused Therapy, Attachment-Based Family Therapy (ABFT), Mentalisation Based Therapy (MBT) for Parents, Mentalisation Based Therapy for Children, and the Non-Violent Resistance Programme (as well as foundation-level training – please see section NVR) to support parents of adolescents who are violent or self-destructive.

If you are noticing your relationships have become a source of distress – your relationships with yourself, with your loved ones or family members, friends, or co-workers no longer fulfil you, my style of working may help assist you.

In my therapy practice, I have worked with clients experiencing some of the following:

  • Relationship difficulties: with children, partners, and family members;
  • an impact of trauma including intergenerational trauma; depression, anxiety, addiction, grief, and loss;
  • understanding and supporting families where a member(s) present with symptoms of ADHD, ASD, phobias, OCD; self-harm;
  • child on parent violence.
