Once you know exactly ‘what’ to do you will quickly regain control, find your feet, and move forward. I have over 30 years experience helping people and have been a consultant in charge of a major hospital Psychology Clinic. I have also worked in an Anxiety Disorder Clinic, and Family Therapy Clinic. This level of expertise allows for accurate diagnosis and personalised treatment. I employ practical, tested methods. When you are under stress it is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that you are powerless, and that this is just the way things are. You will start to believe, “I’m not as capable as I once was"

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.

My work is Humanistic, Person Centred and Emotion Focused, and I use the integrative approaches of my training as entry points for us to language, feel, and honour, all that we carry deeply within us.
I work with women who are looking to transform themselves and their lives. They recognise that their symptoms are the psyche's way of communicating that something needs to change. They are curious and smart, yet struggle to meet their potential. They can seem fine on the outside, but on the inside they are at rock bottom. They are looking to be witnessed by someone who wants to know their hopes, dreams and nightmares. They believe that transformation is possible, and that they have a unique gift to offer the world. They might feel lost, but deep down they know they are capable of greatness.
