About

Feeling you need support outside of your family and friends? Not sure about changing some aspect of your life? I work with adults and older teenagers looking for growth or change in their current lives. If a trauma, or event has impacted you, we may understand why it's happened, but sometimes "why" isn't enough. Combining psychotherapy with somatic psychology, we can create the change and healing you are seeking.
Trained in Gestalt Psychotherapy & Somatic Experiencing, I have experience working with family violence, trauma, ADHD and emotional regulation, depression and anxiety. I am continually updating myself in the latest neuro-scientific research and committed to providing a non-oppressive practice, acknowledging your culture and unique circumstances.
If you want to understand more about how we could work together then give me a call for an initial chat on the phone or send me a text or email. A referral or a previous diagnosis is not required. I have recently increased the days in my practice and look forward to chatting with you.
