Hello and welcome. Are you feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, or stuck in a cycle that is affecting your well-being, relationships, and work? Are you struggling with burnout, compassion fatigue, grief, anxiety, or depression? I believe that incredible change can happen when a supportive and trusting relationship is created and the process of self-exploration and self-discovery begins. I have combined my many years of nursing with my experience as a registered psychotherapist (qualifying) to offer a person-centered and collaborative approach that is based on care, compassion, and curiosity. I hope that I can join you on this journey.
I have drawn on my nursing background along with my experience as a therapist to offer a strength-based and integrative approach to help with understanding some of the challenges and struggles that may be affecting a person. My focus is also on those in the caring professions who may be experiencing burnout or compassion fatigue
I combine a self-compassion focus alongside other approaches to help with matching some of the struggles and challenges that are experienced by my clients. Like many, I do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach, but rather, one that is tailored to the needs and experiences of each individual.
