Trained in Gestalt Psychotherapy & Somatic Experiencing, I have experience working with family violence , trauma, ADHD and emotional regulation, depression and anxiety.
Feeling you need support outside of your family and friends? Not sure about changing some aspect of your life? I work with adults and older teenagers looking for growth or change in their current lives. If a trauma, or event has impacted you, we may understand why it's happened, but sometimes "why" isn't enough. Combining psychotherapy with somatic psychology, we can create the change and healing you are seeking.

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.

Domestic Abuse Counsellors
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.
