I treat a variety of common mental health difficulties and life challenges (e.g. mood and anxiety disorders, OCD, PTSD, complex trauma, relationships issues, stress, low self-esteem, perfectionist traits). Some people aren’t quite sure what’s going on for them, but something just doesn’t feel right. Whatever your struggle is, I want to help you to get your life on track, break out of unhelpful patterns of behaviour, and find meaning and satisfaction in life. I can offer you a safe and non-judgmental space to explore what it is that’s causing you difficulty, and an evidence-based approach to help you to finally move forward.

For over a decade I have been supporting women going through various life changes and transitions. Together we carved paths through overwhelm and anger, through heartbreak and grief, through feeling stuck, through anxiety and depression. Together we found ways to transform, accept or let go of what caused frustration or pain. Each time, down the path, we discovered amazing inner strength, wisdom and creativity which allowed us to move forward with a sense of peace, integrity and empowerment. Does that sound like what YOU need to do at this time in your life?

My goal is to help the client to achieve their own personal goals, via individual or couple's therapy. This includes recovery from trauma e.g. adverse childhood events, sexual abuse, violence, bereavement, PTSD, abandonment or any issues that affects ongoing functioning. It also addresses self-esteem, depression, addiction or anxiety/panic attacks that may arise as a result of stress. Indeed stress is the root of much anxiety and physical ailments. As a foundation I offer a sincere and authentic relationship to assist the client with all relationships and future aspirations in their lives. I also offer clinical supervision.

I help clients who are struggling with a problem which they know is possibly holding them back from being the person they believe they can be. Maybe you are someone who has tried with some success to deal with your own issues but have reached the threshold of your own ability and now need someone you can trust to get alongside to to complete your journey. You are not sure if you are able to trust anyone as you have always been independent and looking for professional help is not something you do easily. So maybe is time to try working with that professional someone who will listen non-judgmentally to get you over that last hurdle.
