She seeks to meet her clients with unconditional positive regard to join them at where they are in a genuine, supportive and nonjudgmental way on their path to healing.

She helps them to see the processes in which they are caught in with their emotions and with other people; reorganise their inner world that make sense of their lives; find their emotional balance and redirect those processes into new directions.
