[Please note: I am currently not taking new clients, apologies for the inconvenience.] I'm passionate about supporting individuals through challenging moments in life. Most people want to develop better relationships with themselves and others, gain confidence and direction, and manage emotions. I've found that suffering often results from self-defeating stories about who we are, how others will respond to us, and how the world works. Many of these stories were shaped by difficult past experiences. Understanding patterns of thought and behaviour can help you create a more rich and fulfilling life.

I have a special interest in trauma, particularly family-related trauma; difficulties with family or intimate relationships; low self-esteem; adjusting to transitions and life changes; and self-development and identity. I believe that the most important aspect of therapy is a positive and trusting working relationship in which you feel understood.

I provide a non-judgmental, respectful space in which to explore difficult emotions and create meaningful, lasting change. I work collaboratively with you to reach your goals with shared insight and practical strategies. Each session is adapted to your preferences, values and strengths using a range of evidence-based approaches.
