About

Are you stressed, depressed, anxious, feeling alone or overwhelmed? As a Counsellor, Somatic Psychotherapist and Kinesiologist I support you gently to mental, emotional and physical health and well being. Together we address how your issues are affecting you at a body-mind, and essential level. As a result of our work together you will – feel better improve your relationships heal trauma, create more wellbeing more easily achieve your goals Each person is different, and may suffer from different issues, so rather than offer you a ‘prescribed’ or standard approach, I use my broad skills and experience work with the individual YOU
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. My clients tell me that the insights they gain in body, mind and spirit support their positive responses to stress, symptoms, pain and relationship issues. You will feel better within yourself,
