About

As a psychotherapist and counsellor I love working with people who are curious and want to embrace life according to what matters to them. I am particularly passionate about working with adults to navigate; grief and loss, birth and death, developing self-love and self-compassion. As a therapist I am committed to my own journey. I engage in therapy, supervision, mentoring, collaboration and professional development. All are essential for me to show up in practice and engage in client work. I am the co-host of the Therapeia Podcast and have published 'Treasured Memories'.
I can SUPPORT you with: Grief & Loss, Birth & Death, Self-awareness, Feminist Therapy, Dementia, Relationship changes, Life-Transitions. Choosing a therapist is an important process! I encourage you to 'meet me' by visiting my website or tune into the Therapeia Podcast. Make sure I feel like the right fit for your needs.
Often the first step is the hardest, people feel they should be able to cope. This can lead to burnout, isolation and loneliness. My wish is for everyone to feel loved, connected and supported. This is why I am passionate about what I do!
