Feeling stressed and burnt out carrying all the emotional burden for your family? Children and young people face a complex world in 2021. Families need support and connection. It’s too common to feel lonely and tired. It takes a village to raise a child, a solid support network is everything. As a mother and partner I know it can feel like we carry all the responsibility of the family. How can we help our loved ones when we are so burnt out? I love working with women, children, teenagers and partners, to re-connect and address serious issues in the family. Too often we let problems get worse and soon they become overwhelming.

I feel passionate about helping people make meaningful, sustainable, and healthy changes in their lives. I aim to work respectfully and collaboratively with people so that clients build their own independence and develop ways to manage life stressors more effectively, in addition to their own thoughts, feelings and behaviours. A comfortable, empathetic and supportive therapeutic relationship is also very important in my approach, and research shows that this is essential in best outcomes for clients. I generally work on a wide range of mental health and life issues and the approaches I work with are all evidence-based interventions.

Monica has a strong humanistic approach to inquiry and assessment which recognises that emotional injuries are embedded in the interpersonal. Combining insights from the neuroscience of attachment and psychophysiology of trauma, together with her warm, sociable personality and highly skilled empathetic attunement, Monica works collaboratively with each of her clients to build a positive therapeutic alliance as a mechanism for emotional, cognitive and behavioural change. This process can take time and depends on the client’s readiness, willingness and capacity for the therapeutic work to address underlying core issues.

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.

Our emotions tell a story, they direct our actions. But unless we are aware of how they influence what we do, they can often get in the way. Lou invites you to listen not only to the story that comes from your head, but also to what your body has to say. Developing greater awareness of your emotional experience and the skills to manage it can be the springboard to creating healthier relationships with self and others, and lead to a more productive life.

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.

It gets full-on at times. Life feels demanding, people seem harsh or confusing, the hurt feels overwhelming, and the answers seem so far away. Other times, you’re left wondering what the point of it all is, and whether there is more to life. I want to help however I can. Helping people to understand themselves, navigate relationships, perceive the world more clearly, and discover meaning in life brings me great joy. Even better is helping people find their own innate resources to cope and to heal.
