Are you going through crossroads of your life? Career, relationships and studies impacting on your mental and emotional health? Lost a loved one recently and finding it to keep going and or just going through a hard time, doubting your ability to navigate the challenges ahead? Have you experience trauma or negative life experience which has continued to impact on your current functioning and relationships? Reaching out for support from an experienced therapist is the first step to resolving your problems and to learn valuable insights and skills for thriving in life and relationships.

I offer EMDR therapy, individual, couples, family therapy and Small Figures Work. EMDR is an effective psychotherapy for treatment of PTSD. Small Figures Work is an experiential modality using figurines to help clients concertise their stories/experiences visually, understand relational patterns and find solutions to their problems.

I am a compassionate and committed therapist with a strong passion to help clients with resolve their challenges, thrive as individuals and enjoy satisfying relationships. Whilst personal crises may be overwhelming, they can be good opportunities and catalyst for change and growth. Invest in yourself and relationships. Get in touch today.
