About

Life today seems to be overloaded by a variety of stress in many spheres of existence. What should be enjoyable and fulfilling sometimes turns out to be the very cause of suffering. In the midst of the busy-ness of life, we do not take the time to address this suffering and instead criticise and blame ourselves. This could potentially leave us feeling confused and ashamed. Moreover shame does not heal the pain of suffering. Every human being has a need to be understood, accepted and validated because the human brain is wired for love. It is love that stimulates neurons and helps connect with other neurons in the brain.
As an integrative psychotherapist I specialise in the treatment of complex mental illness that may be attributed to childhood sexual abuse, physical/emotional/mental abuse experienced during childhood or early adulthood, unaddressed grief and/or complicated trauma. Additionally, I offer my expertise in the field of stillbirth/miscarriage or loss of baby.
As a psychotherapist accredited with the Association of Christian Counsellors, I am keen to help Christians address any spiritual dilemma, gaining a holistic perspective of their mental well-being. I work to my code of Ethics and Practice, with people of all faiths, respecting their autonomy and do not impose any of my personal values or views.
