Motchila is a warm, non-judgemental and empathic therapist who believes in the importance of providing a safe and supportive therapeutic space, in which clients can openly explore difficult emotions, thoughts and experiences. She works with clients to develop a shared understanding of how their difficulties have developed over time, and what factors might be maintaining them in the here and now. She takes a collaborative, practical and evidence based approach, helping clients to bring about meaningful change and acceptance in their lives.
