I have a person-centred approach and work holistically with my clients.
I provide trauma-informed care, and empowerment is a key part of my work with clients.
I draw on multiple therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).
I believe there is no one size fits all approach when it comes to working with people, this is why my methods include frameworks of attachment theory, somatic (or body-based), mindfulness-based, and cognitive behavioural theories. I have additionally integrated my practice with creative techniques due t my profound interest in neuroscience, mindfulness, and positive psychology.
