Counselling therapy

If you are coping with anxiety, depression, burnout, poor life satisfaction, high self-expectations, or difficulties in social situations, I'd like to help.

Let's explore what's going on in your life while working together on increasing your well-being.

Tech career counselling

I know from experience that navigating a fast-paced, intellectually demanding tech workplace can get difficult.

Let's work together on combating your self-criticism, alleviating burnout and helping you develop skills that you need to take the next step in your career.
My vision is that of a transformed tech industry where employees are empowered to thrive and are allowed to be at their unique best, at work and at home.

How I will work with you

I create a safe and open environment where all my clients can examine who they are and how they relate to others. As a software-developer-turned-counsellor, I value goal-oriented approach to therapy, incorporating measurable outcomes and your feedback along the way. With a natural curiosity about what the world looks like through your eyes, I will help and support you on your journey through the good and the bad.

I align my practice with the psychodynamic, humanistic, existentialist and Gestalt approaches. My goal is to facilitate a tangible improvement in your life by teaching you new coping skills and guiding you in defeating your self-limiting beliefs.
