I specialise in working with women and LGBTQI+ folk who are wanting support with trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, and body image concerns. Many of my clients experience stigma and micro-aggressions on a daily basis. Some of the main reasons people choose to see me are because they struggle with feeling 'not good enough', or they have difficulty coping with overwhelming emotions, or they are struggling in a world that doesn't seem to accept them. Some of my clients feel disconnected from themselves and are wanting support to work out who they are. Most of my clients would like to feel safer.
Life often doesn't unfold as expected. Illnesses develop, family relationships change, transitions trip us up, new beginnings quiver and people pass. We cope well with some and others not so. But we are not flawed. The same learning mechanisms that enable us to navigate busy everyday lives without conscious thought also create the distresses we experience. Understand how we function and everyone has the capacity to move beyond symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression, learning new behaviours and feeling good about themselves.
Maybe this is the first time you've visited a page devoted to healing and personal growth. Or possibly you are travel-weary and wary after journeys yet to result in a sense of fulfilment? Whoever you are and whatever stage of life you are at... You are welcome here. I have travelled this path of healing and personal growth myself. I have learned from the best teachers, explored with the safest therapists and trained in ways backed by scientific evidence. As your self-study guide, and in the spirit of collaboration, I will ensure you feel safe and psychologically held.
Are you feeling worthless, a failure and exhausted second-guessing yourself? An agitated mind, can’t sleep, constantly worrying and stress at work? Those hit the hardest are often the most empathic, intuitive and spiritual souls. You'd love someone to really care but it seems too good to be true. Before plunging into resignation and resentment, how about reaching out to someone who’s trodden that path before? I’m adept in helping empathic women stand strong in difficult situations requiring a firm approach, such as a toxic workplace or controlling person. I’ll help you develop the audacity to back yourself but without the conflict.
I typically work with people who lead full and busy lives who often feel burnt out and exhausted, looking to find a way back to flourishing and wellbeing. I also work with people who are going through relationship challenges of all shapes and sizes, and people who wish to break free from old, limiting childhood patterns that keep showing up to hinder their full potential. My hope is that clients who work with me are reconnected to their deepest sense of who they are, to their strengths, gifts, and their capacity to love themselves and their lives. I work with individuals and couples.

Are you struggling right now? Is it challenging to get through the day? interact with others? manage circumstances? or heal from past trauma?

Engaging in counselling/psychotherapy means having support whilst working towards increased self-awareness, insight and healing, enhanced relationships, helpful coping strategies and healthy ways of thinking that can lead to improved wellbeing and quality of life.

I work with heterosexual and same sex couples and individuals who are in a place of questioning or are seeking understanding about a specific situation or event. For couples they may be wanting some "fine tuning" in specific areas of their relationship or they may be experiencing a breakdown in trust and/or communication, and may be unsure if they can or want to stay together. Individuals may be ready to explore childhood issues, dealing with trauma or having an existential crisis. They may want to change unhelpful behaviours, manage stress or anxiety, resolve family conflicts or get in touch with their feelings.

Nearly all of us have challenges in life. Perhaps some of the most difficult for us to adjust to are those concerning our intimate relationships, and sexuality. Relationship problems and problems with sex are two of the most common issues that people bring to counselling with me... these aspects of life frequently result in much distress within each of us, and much conflict if you're in a relationship. Let's face it, it's not easy talking about relationship problems and sex when we're already feeling distressed.

I work with highly sensitive people who struggle with intense emotions and their aftermath. Sometimes they may feel like they are feeling everything, all at once, at other times nothing at all. They may have experienced a big trauma, or lots of little ones.

I work with adolescents and their families and adults of all ages. I also work with carers (family and friends) of people with mental health challenges.
