CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY - TAKE YOUR SEAT TO HEAL YOUR SELF

I am combining evidence-based practices in collaboration with you. This way of working creates a safe and empathic environment and forms the base for our therapeutic relationship. I support you in unlocking your inner resources, in shifting your emotional reactivity to equanimous responsiveness. And I assist you in developing self-regulating resources to increase your psychological flexibility.

Once you have developed a set of personal skills, you will:


  • find greater comfort with discomfort;
  • learn to manage your struggle;
  • experience choice;
  • relate differently to your difficulties;
  • recognise inner strength;
  • nourish the inflammed mind and body;
  • develop insight.


Your commtiment to self and work in therapy will result in sustainable outcomes such as resilience, freedom, happiness, and wellbeing. You will cultivate  mindfulness and self-compassion and apply attitudes of non-judgment and acceptance. All of this is essential basis for enabling sustainable change and relapse prevention.
