My early work in behaviour and learning, infant-child attachment and development and adult attachment; grounds my work in relational healing and includes understanding the role emotions play in body-centred awareness and unconscious patterning.
If you have been struggling to find your voice, afraid to express your authentic feelings and connect with your truth; I can help you identify, understand and work through barriers that keep you stuck. You don't have to keep repeating old, unproductive or harmful patterns. Therapy can help you regain your power, identify what's keeping you stuck and help you enjoy renewed relationships with family, friends and co-workers. Anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, grief, loss, separation, divorce; abuse, family and work pressures, contribute to disharmony, imbalance, confusion and stress.

I use creative approaches to problems solving such as play , story-telling, and drawing.
Is depression dragging you down? Has anxiety been coming around to bother you? Is a problem getting in the way of your goals? As we go trough life, we face challenges that can impact us and our personal growth going forward. Sometimes the things we have been doing in the past to cope and get by don't seem to work or have the same effect as they did before. We need to find a new way of thinking and behaving to readjust, cope, and heal from the traumas in our past so we can manage the challenges ahead of us. Lets team up together to take control of your story and make the changes you would like to see in your life.

I work from a play and/or based therapy perspective with younger children and talk therapy with older kids.
You’re getting calls from the school about your child. That’s if he even makes it to school. Your sweet little baby is almost unrecognizable. She hates herself, she hates you, and you’re an idiot for trying to help. He spends most of his time in his room glued to the phone or yelling at you. And you can’t figure out what’s going on. Or maybe you're struggling issues around parenting, post-partum issues, or your own relationships. Your anxiety is out of control, you feel hopeless, you know something has to change. Adulting is hard.

*I am currently on maternity leave and not taking new clients* Thank you for considering me for the very important role of working with your family. As a parent, do you wonder how best to support the emotional needs of your teen or how to get them to open up to you? Do you dream of a closer, deeper relationship with your teen or pre-teen but you aren’t sure how to get there when it feels like they’re pushing you away? If your teen is experiencing difficulties in relationships with friends or family members, emotions that feel overwhelming or out of control, or difficulty making healthy decisions, let's talk about how I can help.

I believe we all dream to live lives of more and lives of less. More: happiness, peace, joy, health, achieving meaningful goals, and joy in relationships. The opposite is also true, we seek lives with less. Less: stress, illness, negativity, pain, bad relationship habits, trauma, anger, and disconnection. Are you one of millions of 1st generation Canadians trapped between 2 worlds? Is it time to create your own life? Do you experience Anxiety, depression, maternal loss/fertility struggles, growing up "fine but feeling empty", or loveless parenting--all of which can hold you back or instill panic. Small steps can feel overwhelming.

I believe that every person has the innate ability to live and harness an authentically bold and heart-centred life. Trauma and oppression disconnects us from this truth leaving behind lasting wounds that hurt our relationship to ourselves and others. I have worked with mental health, addiction and trauma for 20 years and have supported many individuals through their healing journey. I am trained in various integrative and relational therapies that address mind, body and spirit. I hold space and co-create safety so that you may listen and trust the wisdom within that empowers you towards more choice, freedom and boundless joy.

Play Therapy Counsellors
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counselling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.

If you're looking for play therapy in London or for a London play therapy counsellor, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists in London, and play counsellors.
