Description

Everyone deserves to be their true self. As a software developer turned counsellor, I help clients from the tech industry with transforming anxiety, depression and burn-out into self-actualization. I will work with you on increasing your confidence, setting boundaries, deepening your self-awareness and maintaining a life-career balance that is unique to your needs.

With a natural curiosity about what the world looks like through your eyes, I offer support, encouragement and understanding. I value goal-oriented approach to therapy, incorporating measurable, collaboratively-set outcomes.
