My approach to psychotherapy is influenced by my interest in existential philosophy. I draw from my training in psychodynamics, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), humanistic and existential psychotherapy.
Life can often be confusing, contradictory, and at times extremely difficult. At any stage one can be faced with feelings of sadness and loneliness. You may feel lost and uncertain and things may seem meaningless. Existential psychotherapy endeavours to address these questions whilst taking into account the uniqueness of each individual and his or her specific individual needs.
I believe the quality of the relationship between the therapist and client is of great importance; it is built on trust, respect and openness.
I consider that my task as a psychotherapist is to offer a safe and containing space in which you may feel able to explore your thoughts and feelings without fear of disapproval or judgement. Through a trusting and collaborative relationship, my aim is to assist you in clarifying your experiences and how you exist in the world. It is an opportunity for you to tell your story, gain insight and reflect on your situation, which in turn will enable you to reach a better understanding of both your limitations and possibilities.
