My Approach

I am an integrative therapist which means I combine different theories and techniques I have learnt to form a new practice to support my clients. I am able to draw from different theories to what I believe works best and what suits my clients best. It is the integration of personality and needs of the client in the Counselling room. The main theories I have studied are

  • Person-centred therapy,

  • Cognitive behavioural therapy,

  • Transactional analysis

  •  Psychodynamic therapy.

This brings together the emotional, cognitive and behavioural theories within the Counselling.
