Life can change in a “ wink of an eye” and that’s what happened to me. I was an extremely fit and healthy mother of a 2 yr old child when I was multi-tasking and accidentally slipped down wooden staircase. Soon after, my life spiralled down AGAIN after having had a Spinal Stimulator placed along my spine. I was left bedridden in AGONY. 8 years of it, unable to watch tv or write. As humans we have great potential. I’m here to companion with you through the toughest of times and I use many tools. If it weren’t for God, a fantastic GP who fought for my rights, a 24/7 carer and family I would have surely died. I’m here now, for YOU.

Life can be hard, uncertain and confusing, and yet there is an expectation that we inherently know how to live and relate well. This is a fallacy. The realms of the personal are complex, made even more complex when two or more lives come together in relationship. Guidance, mentorship, support and education are necessary elements to navigating the vicissitudes of life and relationship. I therefore guide my clients (individuals, couples and other relationships) through a unique exploratory process of understanding, discovery and growth.

Hello there! As an Integrative Psychotherapist, I am sensitive to the many causes of suffering and the many approaches to treatment. In developing a therapeutic relationship with clients, I value being honest, collaborative, and discerning. After a few sessions of information-gathering to clarify and prioritise your primary concerns, we develop a flexible treatment plan, and follow it together to reach your goals. Clients often describe me as warm, funny, open-minded, and caring. I absolutely love the process of psychotherapy - helping fellow humans through deep challenges and developing their ideal-self is very rewarding.
I am a registered psychologist in private practice who works with children (5+), adolescents and adults. I previously worked in a family/community mental health organisation where I also worked for a trauma-specific program and LGBTIQ+ specific service. I also bring experience from prior work in private practice, and work specifically with addiction. I work with a variety of issues including general mental health issues, adjustment to life changes/stresses, grief, trauma and substance abuse. I believe strongly in facilitating a safe, interesting and collaborative therapy space. I can also hold appointments in German and Finnish.
I’m honoured to witness the people I work with deepen their relationship with themselves and positively transform their lives. Through counselling, I can help you form an authentic, compassionate connection with yourself, which will empower you to make positive choices to enhance your relationships, mental health and wellbeing.
My aim is to establish a warm and trusting relationship where you can feel supported, gain new insight, solve problems, alleviate symptoms, and develop your self confidence and sense of purpose. I take an integrative approach tailored to your needs; effective therapeutic interventions are identified collaboratively, and may include talking therapy, experiential approaches, art therapy, walk & talk therapy, etc. I believe real therapeutic change takes time and can offer longer term psychotherapy options to suit your needs and budget.
