“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” (Carl Jung)

I am a clinical psychologist with a focus on insight-orientated psychotherapy. In my private practice I work with adolescents, young adults and adults Working from a psychodynamic paradigm I seek to explore conscious and unconscious patterns and personality dynamics, often created through early experiences, considering how they influence experiences and relationships in the present.  The aim is to gain insight into one’s self as a means to create changes in unhealthy patterns, better manage life’s challenges and grow holistically as an individual.

I also work with trauma in briefer term work and have an interest in parental and couples counselling in which the couple or the family unit is the focus respectively.
