Many people live life in a state of quiet despair, not knowing that an unhealthy side of them exists to keep them stuck. We cannot change what we are not aware of. Together, I work with my clients to become aware of and to take on this unhealthy side, by investigating with love, care and precision, their internal world. My clients come from all walks of life - professionals, labourers, men, women, middle aged and young. We all share a healthy desire to experience life more fully, and the short term dynamic approach that I work from is very effective at attaining this goal.

I am trained and certified in offering short term dynamic psychotherapy (STDP). After counselling for 25 years, I found STDP to be the most direct way to understand the complicated internal world that we live from. This means addressing where and how we learned to treat our selves so poorly, even if it seems "normal" now. It is work, but worth it!

I offer a safe, non-judgemental space in which we explore difficult, often shameful, issues that are holding you back and keeping you stuck. As a mature woman with much life experience, I understand the courage it takes to want something better. I operate from a Buddhist-informed perspective as well, having walked on my own Buddhism inspired path for decades
