Adrianna believes in a collaborative, person-centred and creative approach to therapy. She aims to help her clients transform their emotional blocks in life into opportunities for self-reflection and re-direction towards a more balanced, fulfilling path. Adrianna draws on her studies in CBT, ACT, narrative and solution-focused modalities, as well as her personal practices of the creative arts, yoga, and mindfulness.

 

"I believe the relationship between therapist and client is key. This needs to be strongly established before we can co-journey together into accepting who we are, or to make changes to our lives. Change is not easy, but certainly possible. I hope to create a space for people to meet their potential in all aspects of their lives by finding practical, holistic steps together that reflect their deep values."
