About

The way I work is interactive, collaborative, intuitive, and respectful. I work analytically with my clients by investigating how early childhood experiences have shaped current thinking and behaviours. We explore the links between unconscious and conscious thoughts, symbolism, beliefs, emotions, desires, and how they impact daily life. The work lies within the unconscious to conscious links, how one relates to their world, allowing unspoken languages of the body to express deeply felt emotions and thought patterns. As your ‘story’ unfolds, together we work to find meanings, diverse perspectives, and solutions to your concerns.
My psychodynamic psychotherapy approach provides a safe, analytical, empathic, and respectful space for deep exploration of the person/s involved. I specialise in trauma, alcohol and other drugs (AOD) but this is not exclusive of other mental health issues I can work with.
Courage is not about the absence of fear but your ability to move within it. This is a quality that exists within everyone, some discover this earlier than others. If this statement resonates with you then I implore you to reach out. I attend to diverse clients with various mental health issues, I mainly work with adults in individuals and couples sessions.
