About

I help couples, families and individuals seeking to achieve better relationships. I specialise in marriage and family counselling, polyamory and ethical-non monogamy. I'm solution focused so my clients can achieve fast results. Over the years, I have transitioned from a legal career into counselling/psychology so my clients can expect high ethical standards, high academic competency as well as a modern and fresh approach to relationships.
I work exclusively in relationship counselling. I utilise varying approaches in individual, family and couples counselling and will tailor my approach to suit the individual needs of my clients.
I'm a relationships expert with degrees in Psychology, Relationship Counselling and Law. My approach is multicultural and because I have lived in different countries, I hold a special understanding on relationships cultural aspects. I have worked at private practices and relationships agencies over the years.
