About

Is your life is feeling hard or painful in some way right now? Something needs to change but it feels like a mountain to climb? Feeling stuck or confused? My hope is that I can help. If you choose to work with me, my promise to you is that I will listen with respect, care and compassion. I will offer my authentic responses to whatever you bring. Perhaps, together, we can develop new perspectives on your life. I believe in the power of a real relationship, with a counsellor, to bring about the change you desire. I look forward to hearing from you.
I offer relational counselling, providing a space in which we can explore your issues together and try to make some sense of it all. I always try to work with both the cognitive 'thinking' plane, and the 'feeling' embodied plan in the search for what is true for you.
​Often, people are carrying a great deal as they enter into counselling, and reaching out at all can be really hard. It's vital that you find the right therapist for you, someone you click with, so I offer a free phone or video consultation to all new clients.
