About

People engage in psychotherapy for a multitude of reasons. Some are struggling with change, some struggling with a lack of change. Some want help with a crisis or specific problem, while others seek help to change behaviours and pattens that are no longer serving them. My therapeutic style is compassionate, empowering, holistic and can be a bit of fun too. Psychotherapy invites greater self awareness and the exploration of new skills to deepen your relationship with yourself and others. Enabling growth and providing flexibility in the face of challenges and inner space for peace and contentment.
Within a safe, attuned and responsive therapeutic relationship, I am able to employ various modalities suited to you and your needs grounded in Gestalt therapy. Encouraging curiosity and greater self awareness, we explore new skills and ways of relating to ourselves and the world that invite purpose, contentment, joy and healing into your experience of life.
"I soon came to realise that I had the most incredible choice to make, I could let my struggles be the reason for my failure or I could make them the reason for my success. My darkest days are my greatest assets. Deepening self awareness and attunement of all parts of self is my hope for my clients, from this place I believe authentic growth is unavoidable.
