He is comfortable working both on a short term arrangement and on an open-ended basis and he sees individuals, couples and groups.
“I embrace a supportive, person-centred, non-judgemental and empathic approach to therapy and I believe in empowering clients through providing strategies that help to raise self-awareness and which alleviate psychological distress. I work in a collaborative way to ensure the full participation of the client in the therapeutic process. The focus and the pace of the therapeutic process are dictated by the clients’ needs and abilities. I have a broad range of experience, which encompasses past or recent trauma, losses, anxieties and depressive moods and self-esteem. Additionally, I have a specialisation and interest in sexual issues and relationship, the latter can be with others or a relationship that one has with oneself.”
