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.

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.
