About

I offer holistic psychotherapy and counselling to address issues of inner and outer conflict, depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, low confidence, grief and loss. By facilitating the expanding of self-awareness there's growth in health and wholeness; becoming more authentic, purposeful & integrated; and creating better harmony within relationships.
I specialise in process-oriented psychology working with individuals and groups, working with feelings, thoughts, dreams and body sensations, which gives meaning and purpose to the individual’s life in general.
I invite you to walk with me, to explore opportunities for you to know yourself better so that your needs are attended to. It is surprising to many of my clients that they experience a deep transformation in very few sessions. There is always plenty of room for new clients as the therapy is impactful. A price increase starting July 2022.
