How I Work

I am an integrative relational psychotherapist, which means that I see emotional distress as having roots in an individual's relational experience. Most people who are in distress bring to therapy difficulties with relating to others or to themselves. 

The goal  of my approach is to help you develop awareness of how you interact with yourself an others. 

I see the therapeutic relationship and the relationship with yourself  as the foremost agent of change. The trustworthy and open relationship that we will develop will be the core of our work together. 

 

There are a lot of different modalities of talking therapy. My integrative approach enables me to use the most suitable approach to you and what you bring to therapy. I had training in various modalities such as psychodynamic, existential, cognitive behavioural, humanistic, etc. and I continue to develop my knowledge in the new areas such as polyvagal theory, interpersonal neurobiology, compassion focussed therapy, metacognitive therapy, etc. 

 

 I am committed to ethical practice and act in accordance of BACP code of practice and as such I relate to my clients in a non-judgemental way. I feel privileged that you share your inner world with me and I show an utmost respect to confidentiality, to your autonomy, your way of life and your choices.

The areas I mostly deal with are as follows:
  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Relationship issues (conflict, affairs, separation)

  • Anger

  • Low self-esteem
