Natasha is a warm and attentive Clinical Psychologist. She is nurturing, calm and non-judgmental in her approach. She believes in the value of building a strong therapeutic relationship where clients feel safe, at ease and supported to make effective changes for their life. Natasha’s main treatment approaches are Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). She is trauma informed and works with each person’s strengths in order to empower and guide them toward their goals. She understands stress and setbacks can be difficult to work through. Her approach is patient and enthusiastic and she will work alongside you to help build your skills and self-confidence.
