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'.

My interest lies in helping individuals living with trauma, anxiety-related disorders, interpersonal difficulties and emotional regulation issues. I help clients improve their relationship with themselves (and by extension others) through developing a self-compassionate understanding of their emotional difficulties. From this place we move forward together to process "stuck" memories and explore the development of new ways of being in the world.

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.

In over 20 years as a therapist, I have worked with a wide range of clients and couples with many and varied issues. I work in a way that is strongly client, and emotionally focused. I have worked with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, substance issues, food disorders, grief, child-hood trauma, uncertainty around sexuality and gender, around identity and self confidence/esteem. I work well with clients who are looking to change their lives and who are open to exploring their issues; to challenge their thinking and to examine what isn't working for them and to take practical steps to shift beyond where they are now.

My approach to working with clients is collaborative and caring. I believe that the relationship between a client and therapist is one of the most important factors to successful therapy and building a strong, trusting foundation is key. I really enjoy supporting people to work through the emotional blocks which are preventing them from living their fullest life. The focus of my work is usually around developing an understanding a client's story and their unmet needs, supporting them to meet those needs, develop compassion for themselves, and cope with challenges.

I'll help you find a way through whatever is bothering you by teaching you a whole different way of relating to your problems that will be a total relief. The changes you make will be lasting, life-enhancing and uniquely yours. You may have never had therapy, or be like many of the people I work with and have seen lots of other therapists before, but nothing has really stuck. It could be a familiar old depression feeling creeping back in, you might be really unsure how you will get through this social isolation period without your eating disorder getting out of hand, whatever it is, I can help.

Are you seeking a holistic and body-oriented style of therapy that respects the full spectrum of your human experience? My roots are in process-work: a dynamic blend between Jungian psychology and nature-honoring shamanistic/spiritual traditions, with a focus on supporting your natural drive towards awareness and wholeness. I work with sensitive women & men who are seeking a slower pace and a nourishing space to face the difficult, dark, or hidden dimensions of their lives. I love working with folks who are navigating grief & loss, relationship troubles, spiritual emergence, repressed emotions, loss of meaning & life transitions.

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.

In 1997 at RCH I set up groups for socially isolated teens with ASD, anxiety, shyness, bullying, sensory deficits, cognitive & receptive language deficits & so on. Teens say that they enjoy the "judgement free space", the belonging. Their confidence grows in the groups. Parents say that they are keen and organised to come to the groups, it is the highlight of their week. They relax. I delved into the needs of socially isolated teens through my Psychodrama thesis called "Friends Are The Best Medicine". I also run Tuning Into Kids/Teens groups for parents & Family Therapy. Telehealth is available for kids/teens/parent/families!

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in Thornbury, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
