I am a trainee psychotherapist, currently completing a postgraduate diploma in advanced psychotherapy at the Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy.
My therapeutic approach is tailored to meet individual needs. I am committed to provide a safe, non-judgemental, supportive and accepting space where a trusting therapeutic relationship can be built. Together we can achieve the change and transformation you need.
I have experience of working with adult clients from a range of ages, backgrounds, cultures and sexualities. I have been moved and privileged to be part of each of their journeys – through the tears, the laughter, the setbacks and the (often life changing) personal growth. I have worked with clients who have experienced the following issues around: anxiety, depression, lack of confidence and low self-esteem, sexuality, stress and burnout, just to name a few.
My career has a varied path. I am a qualified teacher and have a PhD in science. My new career in psychotherapy started with my own personal therapy 5 years ago. This experience has changed my life immensely and led me to train as a therapist in order to help others to make their own changes and transformations. I am very passionate about mental health and believe in the effectiveness of talking therapy as a route to gaining control of our lives, finding our true selves and achieving our goals.
I am registered and subscribe to a code of ethics and good practice laid down by the UKCP and UKATA. I am fully insured and supported by regular clinical supervision.
Although I currently cannot offer you sessions in any other language than English, I speak Lithuanian and have a basic knowledge of Spanish and Russian. I have found it useful at times when clients cannot find the right words to express themselves in English.
