Integrative psychotherapy is delivered interpersonally and is well suited for individuals and couples with developmental and/or relational trauma and neglect. I'm warm in my approach and endeavour to create a collaborative and attuned therapeutic relationship, one which prioritises an experience of feeling safe and understood. I hold a strong perspective that psychotherapy has dynamic potential for change and well-being, with this perspective being continually reinforced through my own continued journey, research and training.

I’m an expert in the areas of reactive stress, stress reactions, trauma and post traumatic stress.
Managing stress and changing behaviour is a complex matter. It can be even tougher when you try to do it alone. My clients are looking for the tools to manage their situation effectively and bring about positive behaviour change and improved performance. The people I work with want the power that comes from combining the best elements of coaching, positive psychology with the best therapeutic practices, including both traditional and state of the art methods. They want both coaching support and clinical expertise to help them cope, build their resilience and ultimately thrive across a range of complex situations and experiences.

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 work with adults who are experiencing Anxiety, Panic attacks, OCD, Depression, Low Self -Esteem, Acute and Chronic stress, Burnout and Trauma . My approach is to: (1) Understand the client as well as the environments in which they function (2) Teach clients effective techniques and coping strategies (3) Build strong skills to create sustainable change. Many people have seen various therapists throughout their lifetimes. Often they find themselves relapsing back to the same problems. Clients who undertake counselling with me will be guided on how to change long standing patterns of negative behaviours and progress forward.

People living with trauma or autism typically show a cluster of symptoms: general anxiety, social anxiety, poor anger management, emotional dysregulation, relationship challenges, avoidance, poor sleep and substance abuse among others.
Many people sometimes struggle to understand their emotions and behaviour - maybe they get angry too easily, or become upset for no apparent reason. Other people are often well aware of why they need some mental health support, due to historical and / or current problems. I always ask clients: "What do you want to be different in your life when our work is done?" The client's answer may be specific or vague, surprising or long-known to them. Either way, I can help you answer those and many other questions - but only if you truly want to overcome the mental health challenges that stop you from behaving like the person you want to be.

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.
