Why did you choose to become a therapist?

It feels like a job I was born to do. In my teens I was a befriender to children in hospital over 3 months, in my 20s to mid 30s I worked as a support person to those who were refugees, homeless and those with diabetes. At that point having already been in therapy due to my past childhood I trained 7 years to become a psychotherapist with a specialist focus on those who experienced abuse including survivors of cults.

Why do you think integrative therapy is the most effective form of therapy?

One can blossom in various ways so do benefit from a more individual approach which means that everyone I work with will have an integrative individual approach.

How would you describe your therapy session & approach?

When you contact me I will send a contract which is normal in therapy then we can book a weekly appointment. The session will last 50-60 minutes and at the end we will book the next appointment. I am an integrative psychotherapist so use various methods so each person has an individual approach.

What are your Top 3 professional achievements so far?

Spoke at 3 conferences on trauma, chronic illness and online counselling. Have lived in 3 continents. I wrote a chapter about chronic illness for a book on Online Supervision.
