People are most fulfilled when they have meaningful activity and connection to others both in immediate friends and the wider community. We’re happiest when we’re connected to others, connected to nature and have occupation/activity that means something to us. Every person is different and may take a different pathway towards self actualisation. I believe in meeting the client where they are and cooperatively choosing an approach to therapy.

Navigating the seasons of life on your own can sometimes get tough. As you do your best to make sense of all that seems too much or out of control, having a listening ear as you work through it can be helpful.

A major part of my work as a registered clinical psychologist is offering psychological support to patients, in a mutual effort to seek to better understand themselves and work through how they can relate more intimately to themselves and to others.

I practice a unique blend of clinical and organisational psychology. My therapy sessions are conversational, personal, playful, and guiding. Therapy is about a client and a psychologist starting from an idea: That things could be better. Maybe by a lot, maybe just by a little; either way, something worth working for. Something that justifies facing challenges, shaking things up, taking some risks. As a therapist I don't pretend to know all the answers. My skill is to ask the right questions.

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.
