Are you pregnant or a new mother struggling with big changes within your body, your relationships, work & identity and generally in your life? Acknowledging pregnancy and birth as a rite of passage and a sacred journey helps your to feel validated and allows you take a deeper look at how past experiences may be impacting your current life experiences. Alternatively, you may be a teen or moving towards menopause... either way you again are transitioning from one phase of life into another which requires time, space, reflection and self-enquiry to bring full awareness to your unique life experience.
I am a clinical and coaching psychologist who primarily works with high-performing individuals experiencing high levels of stress and burnout. My evidence-based approach is holistic, integrative, and person-centred. I have a passion for bringing together the latest neuroscience and physiological findings with evidence-based practices to help people reset their nervous system, let go of what they don’t need, and connect with what is most important for them.
I work with individuals and couples that want a deeper connection to themselves and each other so they can find their own way forward with their lives. Whatever is getting in your way (e.g. anxiety, trauma, depression, relationship issues) I can help you embody and ground yourself so that your nervous system can settle and we can journey towards the root causes and release them from your body and behaviour. I love helping people come home to themselves. I find this to be the most empowered way of moving through life.
Conflicts, all the difficult things, and problematic situations, literally shake up our world and invite us to interact with life in new ways. These transitions often uproot our world, sometimes in ways we aren’t prepared for or don’t want to deal with. Yet these roadblocks can lead you to your authentic self, and even though this can be extremely painful and difficult to navigate, once you move through them, you’ll appreciate they facilitated your growth as a person. To heal from major life challenges or painful experiences, we need to change our thoughts and belief systems to allow for new ways of responding and experiencing.
STEVE MARRIOTT - Individual and Relationship Psychotherapy The greatest joys and sorrows in life are experienced in relationships. How we give, receive and perceive love, and many of the ways we have learnt to "do" relationships have developed in our most significant relationships from the time we were born. Many personal strengths and challenges are influenced by our relationships. Empathy, love, generosity and the freedom to openly express ourselves are fostered in relationship. Shame, fear, unworthiness, trauma, depression, anxiety, to name a few, all have their roots in painful relationship experiences.

You don't have to live your life in isolation, anxiety or constant self-judgement, even if it feels like it's been that way forever. Yes, life is challenging, sometimes scary and often confusing. But with proper support it's possible to find your own ground, your own voice and your own place in it all.
I'm a certified somatic psychotherapist, counsellor, mover, yoga teacher & bodyworker. With more than a decade of experience in body-based therapies.

I use a somatic approach by reducing stress and anxiety physiologically, through changing the autonomic nervous system & discharging trauma and by working with embodiment practices. I work with a non-dual lens that mind, body, spirit are one, that each individual is already whole & supporting the removal of obstacles in the way.
Life offers us all challenges, sometimes huge, sometimes small, these challenges present themselves so that we may grow and in the process become wiser.

Developing emotional agility is a natural outcome of therapy that provides agency for change. Issues include parenting, relationships, depression, anxiety, life direction, addiction and trauma.
