I understand that you're a human being, just like the next person, who laughs as well as cries. Can be strong as well as scared. I don't believe therapy has to be all somber and heavy. Sometimes laughter and saying it like it is are the best medicine. My goal is to support people to access private, discreet, respectful counselling that doesn't require a GP referral. We'll spend time looking at the outcomes that you want, to understand what change looks like for you. Then we'll work on giving you practical skills and strategies so you feel in control and intentional about the decisions you make for yourself in the future.

If you are confused, constant crises of one form or another, relationship issues, your employment lacks meaning, then you are not alone. It seems that these feelings are not just personal to your unique family of origin and experiences, but permeate our lives at a societal level. These states can be reflective of a world not designed to reach deep into our souls. Life is suffering, there is tragedy all around us, but how can we make meaning from this suffering and create value not only in our own lives, but for those in our family and community. Join me in a nature based encounter to 'start the great conversation'.

Hi, I specialise in relationship issues, stress and anxiety. There is nothing more upsetting than when we are not feeling emotionally connected to our partner. Some people report a gradual drifting apart while others can pinpoint an event that has damaged the relationship and some are caught in a cycle of conflict, Part of being human is our need to feel safe and understood by our partner, to know they are there for us when we need them. Whatever your challenge I will support you to re-connect, repair and deepen your relationship and or deal with stress or anxiety that impacts your contentment.
