“It’s the relationship that heals,” Irvin Yalom


In my world of integrative psychotherapy, think of it as creating a custom-made blanket of healing. Instead of sticking to just one way of doing things, I weave together bits from different therapeutic styles and theories. It’s like having a palette of colours to choose from, allowing me to tailor my approach to fit each person I work with.

So, what does this mean for you? It means I draw from psychodynamic , attachment theory, self-psychology, transactional analysis, and more approaches, blending them to create a unique and personalized treatment plan. It’s all about flexibility and adapting to what suits you best.

The goal? To bring together the most effective parts of different approaches, wrapping you in a holistic and comprehensive support system for your well-being. It’s not a one-size-fits-all deal; it’s about crafting a therapy journey that fits you perfectly, with a mix of insights and techniques to help you navigate life’s twists and turns.


Psychodynamic Approach

Freud’s Psychodynamic theory explores unconscious processes and the influence of early childhood experiences on personality development.


Kohut’s Self-psychology theory emphasises the role of the self and its need for validation and mirroring in shaping one’s psychological well-being.


Bowlby’s Attachment theory centers on the influence of early relationships, particularly the parent-child bond, on emotional and social development.

Transactional analysis

Berne’s TA theory studies social interactions to enhance communication and relationships, emphasizing various mental states and interpersonal engagement.
