About Me

Hello I'm Vanessa, your supportive clinical psychologist! I believe that life is a paradox. It can be joyful yet painful, beautiful yet ugly, hopeful yet helpless.

And since suffering is part of life, it's okay to not be okay. If happiness is too far-fetched, then may we find peace in chaos.

My approach is rooted in empathy, evidence-based therapies, and a genuine wish to see you be well. Together, we'll explore your thoughts and feelings, set achievable goals, and build the resilience you need.

Thank you for choosing yourself and your mental health. Feel free to come as you are, because “the curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change". – Carl Rogers

Therapeutic Approach

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

This approach helps clients identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviours that contribute to their problems. The therapist works collaboratively with the client to develop strategies to challenge and modify these patterns, leading to improved mood and functioning.

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (MBCT)

This approach combines cognitive behavioural techniques with mindfulness practices to help clients develop greater awareness and acceptance of their thoughts and emotions. The therapist helps clients cultivate a non-judgmental and curious attitude towards their experience, leading to improved mental health outcomes.

Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT)

This approach combines mindfulness techniques with values-based action to help clients develop greater psychological flexibility and live a more fulfilling life. The therapist helps clients identify and accept their difficult thoughts and feelings, while guiding them towards actions that align with their values.

Person Centered Therapy

This approach focuses on the client's subjective experience and encourages them to explore their thoughts and emotions in a non-judgmental and supportive environment. The therapist takes a empathic and non-directive role, allowing the client to lead the session.
