About

Are you looking for a counsellor who is open to see what you see? I am here to align with you as we look at how to find the right answers specific to you. Whether you struggle with anxious thoughts, periods of despair, difficulties with your relationships or just feel generally unhappy and restless, or perhaps life has thrown a curve-ball that is out of your control and traumatic to integrate, I believe the wisdom of our bodies can be utilised so that you can find resonant and usable techniques to change your life. I know that inner peace and healing are absolutely attainable and I am excited to walk with you as you find a new path.
Counselling is a big step - it takes courage and vulnerability to reach out and seek support and it is important to find a counsellor who "gets" you. I believe post traumatic growth is absolutely possible and attainable. I welcome the opportunity to join with you and together we can begin this journey of healing and integration of whatever is troubling you.
I offer a perceptive and gentle approach which allows you to reflect on the next steps to address life's problems. I offer techniques which support you to access your internal wisdom as we navigate your world together. I offer insights which can support you to be curious about how change is possible so that you can find peace, strength and more resilience.
