About

There are times in our lives when we get that sinking feeling that something is not right. Such moments often follow major life events, such as grieving for a loved one, the break-up of a relationship, moving countries, facing health issues or even children leaving home and retirement. Other times, they appear from nowhere. Resulting feelings can be so pervasive that they impact our mental, emotional and physical well-being, creating conflict in relationships and impact our ability to function. They may also start manifesting in one’s seeking isolation, inability to see joy in life and can lead to depressive conditions.
At a time like this I help examine your life challenges and heighten your self-awareness. I take an integrated approach using therapies such as psychoanalysis, person-centred, CBT and Gestalt Therapy. This enables an understanding of life experiences, current challenges, fears and wishes. I bring specialised experience in addictions and men’s mental health.
Psychotherapy and counselling can seem challenging; however, I invite you to reflect on yourself, discover your inner voice and true self. I will support you with empathy and compassion to express yourself in a safe therapeutic space. I invite you to openly share your challenges and concerns allowing us to craft a way forward.
