I believe everyone has the ability to change in a positive way. I put strong emphasis on building up trust, instilling hope and motivation, and creating a warm and non-judgmental environment.
At the same time, I incorporate psychological interventions based on solid research, which proved high efficacy. I often focus on finding the root cause of the problem, neutralising associated emotions like guilt, anger or hatred, and helping patients to live happier and more fulfilling lives.
Structure, collaboration, innovative interventions and my drive to improve, help me to achieve continuous positive therapeutic results.
The below feedback is from patients who have completed my group therapy courses:
- ‘A life changing experience that will stay with me forever along with the skills I have learnt’- ‘The group therapy was really helpful in giving me the tools and skills to move forwards. It was so nice to share with other people who understand’
- ‘Excellent course, understand and knowledge of my illness has been second to none’
- ‘I am so very grateful I was able to do this course, with such an amazing therapist and a group of people who understand how I felt. I could be honest, without being judged and listening to the experiences of others helped me identify my own issues and deal with them more effectively’
- ‘An eye-opener which helped me understand the principle reasons for depression and how to cope’
- ‘Really informative, supportive and practical course run by a compassionate and skilled therapist. I feel like I’m finally on the road to recovery’
