I am a body-oriented and neurobiology-affirming based trauma therapist. I specialise in trauma-informed somatic expressive modalities to support you as you navigate the impact of complex trauma, chronic stress/ pain, anxiety and burnout. I relationally attune and intersect the wisdom of expressive art(s), Psychodrama, somatics and group processes, allowing a whole body/ brain approach to therapeutic engagement. My focus is on resourcing you to become aware of what you need and how to listen to your emotions. If you are looking at sustainable somatic ways in service of ease, acceptance and validation, you are at the right place.
I focus on experiential modalities where we can feel, see and sense our internal experiences in the present moment. This ways of being with what is occurring is empowering rather than talk about them. In mirroring and being seen, we can find creative ways to meet our needs. The creative experiential modes offers safe and containing ways to express ourselves
The medical-cognitive-behavioural-psychological frameworks override our (lived) body and classify everything as a dysfunction or disorder. I affirm your life choices (even the unconscious ones) as the best way you have coped with the absences, complications, wounds, disruptions, stressors and/or trauma. I hold a profound belief in our body's wisdom.

When we have experienced complexity, especially when it has been ongoing, and at significant moments of life, it affects every cell of our being, feeling and relating. We cope, ignore, compensate or circumvent until our body SAYS NO more. My work focuses on resourcing you to pause, attune and tend to needs, feelings, and bodily sensations to feel empowered, resourced and confident from inside out.
