MY AREAS OF INTEREST:
- Trauma Counselling
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Emotional Regulation
- Behavioural Issues
- Relationship Counselling
- Work Counselling
I work with adults struggling with symptoms of anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and other issues. I also worked with clients who experience a sense of meaninglessness and lack of purpose in their lives, or those struggling with parenting, relationship and work issues.
My approach is client-centred and holistic, and my work is inspired by existential psychotherapy, expressive therapies, mindfulness and body-based practices. I also use Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), and other trauma-based psychological approaches.
I believe in human capacity for overcoming personal suffering, and the tendency to strive towards finding meaning and purpose, and reconnect with inner wisdom.
QUALIFICATIONS & EXPERIENCE:
I am a registered Psychologist with 10 years of experience in working with a wide range of people including survivors of who have lived through severely trauma, neglect and violence.
