Part of the therapeutic work is an exploration of emotional and behavioural patterns which can contribute to maintaining some of the difficulties. Often we can make sense of these re-occurring patterns by linking them with our past experiences. Therapy includes instilling self-understanding and fostering clients' sense of agency and choice aiming at improving wellbeing and relationships with others. I work with adults, and as a psychologist I draw upon a range of evidence-based approaches to create tailored treatment plans based on clients’ needs and goals. These treatment plans are flexibly adjusted according to changes we observe together. In all my work, my priority is to keep the client’s wellbeing at heart.
