I see people who are struggling emotionally in all sorts of ways. I do a lot of work with clients who have experienced trauma (including complex trauma), difficulty managing emotions, borderline PD, and grief and bereavement therapy. But people come to see me for many different reasons. Some of the things that I see clients about on a regular basis include Depression, Anxiety, Relationship concerns, Lack of life satisfaction, Life crisis, Abuse and Childhood issues. Ive been around for a while and worked in a diverse range of areas such as community mental health, Youth, suicide/self harm programs, sexual assault and LGBTQIA.

I am pretty laid back and I will work to help you to feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible as soon as possible. I work from a 'relational' framework which means that the relationship between us is the most important part of the therapy process and that which will be the basis on which self awareness, self acceptance, growth and healing occur.

The thought of coming to counselling can be daunting if you havnt been before. I will be lead by you in what you want from therapy and work towards keeping you emotionally safe in our sessions. If you think I might be the therapist for you, give me a call (or email) about what's happening for you at the moment and how I can help you feeling better.
