My approach is based on developing a warm and empathic working relationship and creating a safe, therapeutic space for each client. This allows the client room to think about themselves, their relationships, their suffering and their experiences. I work with each client to explore solutions and understand their problems in a unique way that allows them to improve their quality of life and relationships.
I practice from a psychodynamic perspective. I take a non-directive approach where my clients are invited to discuss whatever issues come to mind in the session. Together, we explore the unconscious factors that are contributing to interpersonal patterns, behaviours and emotional experiences. The sessions become a shared, collaborative process where two people work towards make meaning of experiences.
