About

Safe and compassionate therapy for women and girls 16 and over. As women, we experience unique challenges related to gender, like - discrimination, sexual assault, abuse, domestic violence and hormonal life transitions. And these life experiences can have a significant impact on your mental health and wellbeing. I believe, given the right environment and opportunities, we can all live a rich and meaningful life. It takes strength and courage to reach out for help, so I promise to meet you where you are - gently and mindfully.
My therapy style is integrative - drawing on evidence based training in mindfulness and self compassion, relationship (attachment) theory, inner child therapy, feminist principles and somatic trauma informed care. Safety underpins all sessions - ensuring you feel emotionally, psychologically, physically, culturally and spiritually safe is key to healing.
If you connect with what you've read, please visit my website for more information. I offer a free brief phone consultation, which allows us to talk about what you hope to get from the therapy and whether we might be a good ‘fit’. Please email or call if you'd like to arrange a time for this free consultation.
