I believe that empathy and compassion are essential when creating a safe therapeutic relationship and I passionately believe in the importance of being seen, heard, accepted, and understood by another in a caring and non-judgemental manner.
Hello and welcome. Are you stressed, lost, anxious? Life brings many experiences our way, some good and some bad. The emotional impact of these experiences can be frightening or confusing. Our family have a lot of influence on us, how we behave, how we talk, and how we communicate. Loss, grief, and anxiety are challenging. Processing our emotions is an essential part of living a healthy life.

I offer a supportive environment where you can explore your emotional reactions and relationship patterns leading to a development of a more fulfilling way of relating to oneself and others.
If you are feeling anxious, confused, depressed, unfulfilled, or are trying to adjust to a life change, therapy is a good choice. These feelings don't have to last forever. I work with people who are experiencing low self-esteem, relationship or family issues, sadness, body image or eating disorders, sexual issues, bereavement and trauma. Therapy is useful in creating a personal sanctuary where you can take time to reflect and understand the reasoning behind the decisions you have made, and for facilitating change in your life. In this process, I can help you see how the past is impacting the present and how you can get passed this.

I have worked with and supported people who are experiencing anxiety; family challenges; difficulties with their parents; relationship difficulties; feeling lost and disconnected; abuse; attachment difficulties; low self-esteem; self-criticism; stress; trauma; adult children of alcoholics; grief and loss; and life transitions.
It can be really daunting to start or resume therapy and that's why I focus on creating a space that is warm and safe, to help you feel more comfortable figuring out what's troubling you and unpacking your feelings, thoughts and experiences. I particularly love to help people discover who they are beyond who they have learned to be through their life experiences and environment. I will work collaboratively with you using various therapeutic approaches such as humanistic, CBT, narrative, attachment theory and creative techniques, based on what you need and prefer.

I focus on building a safe relationship so therapy is a supportive space where you can be free to explore your experience.
I believe that creating a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to explore what's happening for them is fundamental to therapy. I think part of this is clients finding a therapist that feels like rhe right fit for them. I see each client as unique, with different needs and so I work flexibly focusing on responding to each individual client in the way that best works for them. I work to enable clients to reconnect with themselves with the support and guidance they need to gain more understanding around their experience and find ways to navigate challenges that work for them as a person.

"At times in our lives we can feel over-whelmed, that we can’t cope, when depression and anxiety take over. At such times we can end up feeling stuck, not knowing what to do next. Old patterns of behaviour and coping strategies, which were once effective, may now operate as a stumbling block in our lives."

In my practice you will be met with empathy, presence and compassion where safety and non judgement form the basis of our therapeutic relationship.
There are times when our capacity to feel better, recover or move on with things can feel too difficult to do on our own. It can help to talk to someone outside of your family, friends and familiar relationships to begin to understand how you are feeling. Therapy is a process that can help you explore issues relating to challenging or traumatic life experiences. I can support you in re-discovering a sense of how you can relate to yourself and others in a more resourceful and empowering way. Giving yourself permission to accept support for where you are at is often the hardest thing to do and the most courageous.

People are all just trying their best, but it is very normal to struggle with life at times. I like helping people who are feeling stuck get unstuck. I like helping people see that they have the power to make something better from their life. I used to be a homebirth midwife, and I find myself drawn to people who are in big life transitions. Or knowing that there is a change needed that maybe is not yet clear. But much happiness comes from learning to truly appreciate what is real in your life today.

Relationship Issues Counsellors
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.
