How I work

I draw on many evidence-based therapies and techniques: 

- Brené Brown's The Daring Way™, a shame-resilience model

- Systemic Therapy

- Humanistic Therapy

- Neuroscience & Psychoneuroendocrinology

- Emotionally-Focussed Therapy

- Compassion and Self-Compassion techniques

- Mindfulness techniques

- Conscious Parenting, Connected Parenting, Choice Parenting & Wholehearted Parenting 

- Unresolved Emotional Trauma Focussed approaches

- Acceptance & Commitment Therapy

- Psychodynamic Therapy

- Cognitive & Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

And more...

When I meet you, I will integrate my knowledge of all of these models and techniques, to create a unique holistic psychology service, that makes sense for you.

My area of specific expertise is in working with my clients to build our emotional resilience, and in particular our shame-resilience: 

I will focus on getting to the root cause of your difficulties,

rather than just 'treating' the surface level 'symptoms' you are experiencing. 

 I prioritise the demystifying of psychological concepts 

& empowering you with knowledge  

I offer a UNIQUE approach, with more hope, and more potentiaL, compared with traditional psychological therapy approaches. 

 I can educate and inform you: 

Learning how your relationships have shaped your emotional expression,

will UNLOCK your sense of agency in your life,

and will return to you a sense of  EMPOWERMENT -

To enable you to OVERCOME YOUR SUFFERING

And  LIVE THE LIFE that YOU ARE MEANT TO LIVE 

Finally, I can also help you understand the connections between your

physical health and your mental health
