My Approach

I passionately believe that , with compassionate and heartfelt guidance, individuals can significantly improve their life and change their circumstances as soon as they decide to open their hearts and become aware of thoughts and beliefs that are self limiting. I focus on unhelpful thoughts and feelings including guilt, shame, entrenched habits and self judgement that can paralyse our efforts to change our life circumstances I provide a individually tailored solution focused and evidence-based approach in order to assist clients in gaining a better understanding of themselves and their circumstances and to effectively deal with their concerns.
