Are you or someone you love, living with chronic pain or physical illness? Have you or your loved one experienced traumatic life experiences that get triggered and impact on day to day life? Are you living with uncertainty, physical discomfort, fear, depression, fatigue, or limitations on living your life? I have 20 years experience, much of it working with people with chronic pain, physical illness, or traumatic stress (incl PTSD) or those that are caring for them, helping them to get their life back on track.
I aim to provide a safe and confidential environment for you to explore you thoughts, feelings and options available. My belief is that, given this, you have the resources within yourself to experience therapeutic change. It can feel good to be free of the burdens that you originally came to address.
I am a sensitive, thoughtful and experienced counsellor. Modern life can be complicated and stressful. This may leave people feeling stuck or with a sense of loss of meaning in their lives, and seeking a greater sense of fulfillment. My practice originates from a psychodynamic perspective, which explores your relationship with yourself, others and the world you live in. You may have a specific problem which you are struggling with, e.g. bereavement or relationship issues, or there may be less specific or easily-identified causes contributing to painful and troubling feelings such as anxiety, depression or helplessness.
If you are at a point in life where you feel stuck or at a point of crisis, and it's preventing your ability to enjoy things as you have normally, you may be needing some extra help to find a way forward. Or if one or more of your relationships with others is becoming difficult, and you don't know why, then this can indicate you are struggling. If your inner world is feeling desperate or muddled and too difficult to manage alone, then counselling can be a positive step in trying to change that. To sit and explore your story and feelings with someone can be powerful in unblocking difficult feelings and to understand what you need.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?
Therapists, psychologists, and counsellors are all licensed mental health professionals. In many countries, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counsellor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counsellors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.
What type of therapist is right for me?
Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counsellor who can offer short-term, targeted support.
Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?
The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counselling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.
What type of therapy is right for me?
The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.
Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?
Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
