I believe in using therapy frameworks that are evidence based and individualized treatment plans rather than a 'one size fits all'. I work with people who feel stuck/ stagnant in life repeating the same cycles leaving them dissatisfied. My goal is to help create insight into unhelpful patterns of thinking & behaviors AND give you necessary tools to find strategies to better cope with the challenges of everyday life."

Clients come to counselling stuck and immobilized, unable to create something new in their lives. The repetition of stuck and unsatisfactory behaviours, thoughts and feelings is what leads most clients through my door. I utilise theoretical and practical interventions, through the observation of the client’s discrepancies, mixed messages, conflict, and incongruity in the client’s statements and behaviours. "
