About

Life can be hard, uncertain and confusing, and yet there is an expectation that we inherently know how to live and relate well. This is a fallacy. The realms of the personal are complex, made even more complex when two or more lives come together in relationship. Guidance, mentorship, support and education are necessary elements to navigating the vicissitudes of life and relationship. I therefore guide my clients (individuals, couples and other relationships) through a unique exploratory process of understanding, discovery and growth.
My practice is informed by a vast array of psychological modalities (Gestalt, IFS, SE), as well as the transpersonal. Couples work is modelled on PACT, created by Dr Stan Tatkin, which is based on research in Attachment Theory, Neuroscience and the biology of human arousal. I also work with new couples to help establish good relational dynamics early on.
Talk therapy is combined with somatic and mindfulness practices, experiential techniques and imagery work to help access hidden facets of the psyche, make meaning of lived experiences, and move toward a richer and more fulfilling life. Psych education is also an important element, to help clients become increasingly more self-reliant.
