My main focus in therapy is to help my clients overcome where they are stuck at; whether it be in form of depression and anxiety or with their symptoms of current and/or historic trauma, such as abuse, neglect, boundary issues, loss, as well as separation and divorce.
I also focus on helping children and their caregivers with the impact of divorce and separation.
In finding a therapist, you might want to know a little bit about me. I've always had a passion for helping children who have experienced any kinds of hardship, no matter how big or small; my heart always reached out to them. From that, I quickly realized that many adults have had those kinds of experiences in their childhood but were never offered the chance of counselling then. That's why my focus is on children and adults simultaneously.
In other words, I work with children and adults to help them overcome situations in their lives in which they are stuck in. To achieve this, I use a highly client-centred approach because I believe that we have the innate ability to help ourselves; we just sometimes need outside help to find the inner resources. I also use trauma therapies to help overcome some of the more intense memories and situations.
With children I use play as the primary approach to therapy and I take a highly child-led approach with some expressive therapy elements.
