MA Counselling Psychology, Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)
Qualifications & Experience
I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the CRPO certified in distance counselling, and enjoy working with adults, teens, and seniors. I have an MA in Counselling Psychology, seven years’ experience working in the field of mental health, a social justice-based MSc in Human Ecology, and a BAH in Psychology and Religious Studies with a focus on Mysticism and Eastern Religions. I also have two years’ experience working outdoors with children ages 5-12 in wilderness skills education, ecological stewardship, and curriculum-linked ecology education. My education and life experience provide me with a wholistic and multidimensional perspective on individual issues and their root causes.
I take a wholistic, trauma-informed approach to psychotherapy. Treatment modalities include, but are not limited to:
- Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction
- Narrative Therapy
- Motivational Interviewing
- Solution Focused Therapy
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
- Acceptance & Commitment Therapy
- Dialectical Behavioural Therapy
- Sensorimotor Psychotherapy
- Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
I focus heavily on developing a safe, authentic, and trusting connection with my clients and highlight client strengths to offer an alternative perspective rooted in positive psychology. I work primarily with clients suffering from depression, anxiety, grief, anger, life transitions and exploration, and complex trauma. I help my clients to uncover their strengths, untangle their knots, and become the version of themselves they have always wanted to be.
