CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY

 

Individual Adult Psychotherapy

The journey of processing difficulties and learning about oneself is a path which not many people dare to travel, despite the immense rewards such a journey offers. Bringing one’s innermost fears, difficulties and traumatic experiences to the therapy room is not easy. Being cognizant of this, building a trusting relationship with my client and creating a safe space to work in, is of utmost importance to me. As a therapist, this quote by Terence really resonates with me: “I am human; let nothing human be alien to me.” Whether you are in crisis, struggling to cope with a traumatic experience, or whether you simply want to learn more about yourself, as a trained Clinical Psychologist I am able to facilitate this process for you. Please contact me to schedule an appointment and begin your journey along the path of growth. Although I work with most disorders and difficulties, my areas of interest include adult survivors of childhood abuse, including sexual abuse and trauma.
