My passion lies in helping individuals living with trauma , anxiety or depression related disorders, sex based issues, interpersonal difficulties and emotional regulation issues. I use a holistic client centred approach to help clients improve their relationship with themselves through self-compassion, awareness and emotional regulation. I use a combination of trauma informed approaches such as (Somatic Embodiment, Attachment Theory and Emotion Focussed Therapy) to support clients with emotional regulation, safely processing trauma and shifting unhelpful beliefs and unconscious patterns of behaviour.

My training in Gestalt therapy, informed by trauma sensitivity and attachment theory guides me to prioritize safety and human experiences in relationship.
As a therapist, I understand the need for warmth and acceptance. This is the foundation of a therapeutic relationship where people can show up with aspects of themselves that are problematic and unhelpful without judgement. I can relate to very human uncomfortable and undesirable behaviors, feelings and beliefs about ourselves. Through consistent support, compassion and curiosity, positive change becomes possible.

So many people feel lonely and disconnected. This can have many causes - childhood trauma , bullying, there are numerous factors. This results in anxiety, depression, sometimes suicidal thoughts. I value people beginning to see their own self worth, to recover from anxiety, depression trauma , whatever has caused them problems. Wonderful to see people starting to cope better with life, to become fully alive and be able to have meaningful relationships. Whatever is causing you suffering doesn't need to continue, do the work and start to recover.

I have worked in a broad range of area's including trauma , youth mental health, general counseling / therapy, parenting assessments, addiction and cancer care / health.
Currently open for new referrals. I work from an understanding that many of life's concerns stem from our past experiences in relationships and the structural difficulties that are present in our society. This organizes the way I understand peoples experience and distress and how I seek to understand how we are in relationship, and what fixed patterns get in the way of living a more meaningful and enriching life. I work with warmth and curiosity to help develop a deeper understanding of your area of concern and better make sense of why particular patterns might be causing distress.

I use Buddhist Psychotherapy as my therapeutic framework. Buddhist Psychotherapy is a non-religious, brain science-focused and compassion-oriented framework, which can combine evidence-based counselling methods with body-mind integrative practices for a restored sense of wellbeing. My practice focuses on the body’s innate wisdom to work out solutions to the presented issues, as well as working with emotions as the vehicles to connect body-and-mind.

I have extensive experience working with issues relating to trauma , including developmental / complex trauma .
With trauma or ongoing stress, survival energy becomes stuck in our nervous system. We might make adjustments, like seeking or avoiding certain types of situations, or clenching certain muscles to dodge tricky feelings or sensations. We believe this keeps us safe from what we fear, but it can also have us feeling trapped in patterns that take a huge toll on our lives, health and relationships. My clients and I work together to discover ways to restore a sense of inner security, peace and passion for life.

Undertaking therapy is a very personal experience. A person may come to therapy to process complex trauma , work through relationship struggles, or simply desire to get to know and understand themselves more deeply. Whatever your reason for seeking therapy, the gifts born from the process of building self-awareness benefit not only you but also those around you who you love. It is profoundly humbling to support my clients to move through adversity, unpack challenging questions, grieve, transition, and move towards wellbeing. I am dedicated to the service of helping people to build agency, inner resources, and stability.

Trauma and PTSD Counsellors
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
