My clients choose me when they “need to do something” about reclaiming their emotional wellbeing in response to issues of overwhelm, pain, stress, depression, anxiety and trauma, grief and loss, pre and post birth support, assistance with relationship issues, self-esteem and pain management. I offer you my interest, experience and passionate commitment.

A somatic and integrative approach enables a better understanding of the underlying “story”and associated symptoms, both consciously and at the non conscious level.
