I am particularly enthusiastic about working with clients in the following areas: childhood trauma and PTSD , authenticity, existential concerns, career and life-purpose, intimate relating, motivation, dreams, spirituality, and place and belonging.
Hello there! I work as an Integrative Psychotherapist, and absolutely love this process of helping fellow humans to heal and grow through whatever has become stuck or too-much to cope with alone. When clients have breakthroughs in these personal struggles it's very rewarding. I value being honest, collaborative, non-judgemental, and discerning in the therapeutic relationship. Clients often describe me as warm, open-minded, humorous, and caring.

Undertaking therapy is a very personal experience. A person may come to therapy to process complex trauma , work through relationship struggles, or simply desire to get to know and understand themselves more deeply. Whatever your reason for seeking therapy, the gifts born from the process of building self-awareness benefit not only you but also those around you who you love. It is profoundly humbling to support my clients to move through adversity, unpack challenging questions, grieve, transition, and move towards wellbeing. I am dedicated to the service of helping people to build agency, inner resources, and stability.

I specialise in counselling through grief, anxiety, trauma , major life adjustments and transitions.
You may feel overwhelmed by life struggles, painful losses or relationship issues. We can work together in this space to acknowledge difficult and complex emotions and experiences, such as anger, anxiety, guilt and shame. Often people may feel alone in the midst of losses and transitions - families, friends and communities aren't always able to provide solace and support. Sometimes a loss or change may feel unbearable. Being seen and heard by another person can create powerful potential for healing and change. We can also work on long-term issues such as family dynamics and relationship patterns that sometimes add to isolation

I work with clients across all developmental stages of their life who experience a range of psychological and emotional difficulties, stress, trauma , and relationship challenges.
Often in today's world, we get caught up in so many distractions on the outside that we are not always aware of our internal experiences. We walk around anxious and depressed, with critical thoughts of ourselves and others, and often live a reality that is separate from our own personal wishes and desires. I believe that therapy provides a safe space to step away from all the external distractions and focus on identifying and responding to our emotional world in the most open and connected way, which may have been too painful to do in the past.

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.
