I offer psychological services to adults, couples, children, adolescents and parents, so they can have a richer life, with greater emotional health and rewarding interpersonal relationships.
I work with clients experiencing anxiety, depression, physical health issues, relationship problems or emotional ups and downs. My primary interest is in working with children and adolescents, and I also provide parent consultations to help with difficulties people face as parents. I strive towards helping people be in touch with their true selves, so that they can be happier within, and find meaningful and satisfying ways to relate to others and the world at large.
In my practice I deeply value the effectiveness of a safe and caring environment for people to explore, understand, and work through their innermost thoughts and feelings. I work comfortably within an eclectic mix of therapeutic modalities such as psychoanalytic therapy, mindfulness and cognitive and behavioural therapy to suit each client’s unique needs. Many young children (and sometimes older children) cannot really “talk” about their problems and difficulties. This is when I use powerful and metaphorical expressive techniques such as play, drawing and stories to facilitate communication. In my work with parents, I make use of interactive parent-training videos developed as part of my doctoral thesis.
I offer adults help with a wide range of difficulties, including:
- Loss and grief
- Troubled relationships
- Job stress
- Anger control problems
- Bodily aches and pains that cannot be explained medically
- Personality disorders
- Eating disorders
I offer psychological assessments and psychotherapy to children for the following difficulties:
- Academic and school related issues
- Difficulties in social adjustment
- Emotional difficulties
- Exhibition of specific behaviours (such as bedwetting, eating problems, and sleep difficulties)
