Many mother/daughter relationships strain during the transition from child to adult.

Talking it through with a counsellor like myself is wonderfully helpful to finding your way. Through the type of counselling I offer, you'll learn how to create a relationship that is balanced and works for you.

I support clients with a variety of presentations and referrals to enhance their overall lifestyle satisfaction and wellbeing. These range from anxiety and depressive symptoms, to self esteem and other more significantly deeply rooted psychological impairment, such as trauma.

The Empty Cradle supports involuntary childless women to grieve the loss of motherhood and create lives of connection, meaning and joy. As lived experience counsellors we understand childlessness can leave women feeling broken hearted and excluded from the world of children, mothers and families. We can experience profound grief, shame, diminished self worth, struggle for meaning and purpose, and impact on interpersonal relationships. There can be regrets, bereavement, losses and ongoing trauma. We support women to develop esteem, confidence and competence to navigate this difficult terrain and gently create a new vision for life.

Since my first client in 1998 I have known that trauma & distress are visceral in nature. One can’t think oneself out of distress, but needs to gently feel the feelings – in the safety of therapy – to express them in a physical, somatic way through talking, breath, movement, acupressure, tapping, mindfulness, & felt-sense techniques. By bringing your issues, thoughts & feelings into the session we work together to untangle & understand & describe the patterns – the psychodynamics – that have sat underneath the formation of these issues. Over time, with increased self understanding & awareness comes release, relief & self-acceptance.
Are you struggling with anxiety? Have you experienced some form of trauma in your life? If so, your body is most likely dysregulated and you would benefit from support to work on creating homeostasis. Anxiety is debilitating and it can affect personal relationships and rob you of the ability to enjoy life. With my experience and approach, I am confident that I can help you reclaim your life back. In addition to my niche area I also work with: self-esteem, relationships, self-care & general counselling issues. If living a life free of anxiety & self-doubt excites you, I would love to connect with you.

You are intelligent and ambitious but life sometimes seems so much harder for you. There are times when you feel as though you are blocked and can't move forward. You work hard, give a lot of yourself, and are stressed, yet you often seem to put yourself last and feel so stuck. But you need to take action, because you can't continue to do life this way.
I understand that you might have unique experience, hardship, traumas and challenges in your life. And I understand that your family, culture or environment might have contributed to it too, or else.

Are you a woman who's got what you always wanted but find that it still doesn't make you happy? Are you feeling stuck, sad, lonely or angry? My clients often feel this way. They also often compare themselves to others and struggle with perfectionism. They tend to feel frustrated they haven't achieved more with their lives, worried they'll never live up to their full potential & afraid that that familiar dull empty feeling will never go away. My clients tend to be very hard on themselves and wary of others, experience anxiety or depression on a regular basis and tend to over work, drink, eat or spend.
