I understand that sometimes life can be difficult, maybe things did not go the way you planned or expected them to go, you don't feel understood, you feel hurt, you lost someone, or you feel lost in life.
As someone who had a lived experience of severe anxiety, I understand that little things can easily overwhelm you. Simple things can be difficult to do without expending so much nervous energy that by the end you feel so drained and exhausted. Sometimes to feel better and in control, or even to overcome, you might simply need a listening ear or someone to guide and empower you to make decisions or simply someone to encourage you on and push through, I may be able to help you with that.

I do not see therapy as a mere fix for what's broken; rather, it explores the intricate language spoken by the psyche and body in daily life.
Hello, I am an experienced Clinical Psychotherapist, Counsellor, and Coach with a profound commitment to guiding individuals on their transformative journeys. Trained in the intricacies of Soul Centred Psychotherapy (SCP), a Jungian-based modality, I specialise in fostering a vital connection with the whole self. In the realm of SCP, I can orchestrate a delicate dance between the everyday sense of self and the myriad layers of consciousness. This therapeutic approach illuminates the internal dynamics that shape our thoughts, moods, and behaviours in both personal and interpersonal realms.

Coping demands life on life's terms: presence, attentiveness & availability to ourselves, our relationships & the needs & values that sustain both; a better ability to live with ourselves - 'going with' not 'in resistance to' life's challenges.
So many concerns come from overthinking & believing what we think too often. So many concerns come from overthinking & believing what we think too often. Circumstances can be challenging/overwhelming. We can become depressed/anxious, which can affect relationships; especially after recent/past traumatic experiences, or distressing/unsupportive family relationships, which can negatively affect our ability to cope, & our view of ourselves & our place in the world. Mindfulness-based cognitive behaviour therapy (ACT/CBT/Schema Therapy/MET) can effectively address unhelpful patterns of thinking & behaviour.

My specialties include anxiety, depression, complex trauma and stress-related concerns, people in transitional life phases & humans experiencing intimacy/relational issues.
With a Master of Professional Psychology Practice, I confidently support clients in navigating a wide spectrum of mental health issues ranging from anxiety and mood disorders to complex trauma, relationship and attachment concerns. My interest in psychology was born out of a natural curiosity of human behaviour and has evolved into a deep passion for helping people cultivate a sense of aliveness & vitality. I am voraciously curious about the human condition, and this translates to the therapy room where I am always eager to seek understanding of the human being sitting across from me: their stories, their urges, and their "why?".

Life Coaching Counsellors

What can I expect from life coaching?

Clients and coaches will typically start by identifying the problem area(s) that the client hopes to address—then, the coach will help the client brainstorm potential solutions and explore concrete techniques to help the client attain their goals. Coaching is typically short-term and focused on finding solutions in the here and now, rather than exploring a client’s past. In addition to strategies aimed at the client’s specific concerns, coaches may encourage general stress management techniques such as meditation.

Can a life coach help treat anxiety?

Because the majority of life coaches are not licensed clinicians, they are not qualified to diagnose or treat anxiety. Anyone struggling with anxiety or another mental health condition should seek help from a licensed mental health practitioner. However, some coaching clients who struggle with subclinical anxiety report that working with their coach on other problems—such as career dissatisfaction or unhealthy habits—has a positive effect on their anxiety.

Can life coaching be done online?

Yes. While life coaching often happens in person, many coaches conduct sessions over the phone or via online platforms such as Zoom or Skype. Because life coaches are not subject to local licensing regulations in the same way that therapists are, they are able to see clients who live in other locations.

How long does life coaching last?

Life coaching tends to be a shorter-term process than therapy, though it does not always unfold over a specific period of time and is instead based on the coach’s or the client’s preferences. Coaching often takes place over three to 12 months but may be shorter or longer if necessary.
