Frequently Asked Questions at a Glance
What kind of therapy do you provide?
I am a UKCP-registered integrative psychotherapist. I offer depth-oriented therapy because I believe that we need to address the root cause of our emotional pain in order to heal. I trained in the psychodynamic and humanistic-existential modalities, and I also integrate somatic (body) work, and the creative arts in my practice. I work from a trauma-informed, holistic perspective. You can read more about how I work here.
What is your specialism?
My specialism is early relational trauma, emotional neglect, and narcissistic parenting. I also have in-depth knowledge of narcissism and emotional abuse in romantic relationships. I have clinical expertise in the areas of shame, trauma bonding and C-PTSD.
How do I know it's a good time to start in therapy?
Therapy is a process of reflecting on and working through emotional issues in a supportive setting, so that you can make sense of how your life events have impacted you and find clarity and transformation. In therapy, things unfold at their natural pace week to week, without trying to rush or force anything. It is good to have some stability in your life in order to begin therapeutic work.
On the other hand, if you would like to work on issues around motivation, goal-setting and achievement, coaching might be a better option.
