Daniela's Therapeutic Approach

As a psychologist, I am to build a safe, warm and empathetic space where my clients feel safe to explore their thoughts, emotions, and experiences. I believe in the importance of both mind and body so my therapy style integrates a range of therapies, drawing from various holistic approaches such as cognitive-behavioural, psychodynamic, and humanistic therapies, tailored to meet the unique needs of each of my clients.

I aim for my clients to feel understood, supported, and empowered during our work together. I want them to understand their patterns of thinking and behaviours, develop strategies that work for them, and create meaningful change and personal growth. Ultimately, I hope that clients leave therapy feeling more confident, resilient, and better equipped to navigate through life.
