Psychotherapy is a deeply personal journey. This journey is unique to each individual, where the journey may begin with seeking purpose in the person’s life or seeking to make meaning of life and its mysteries. It may involve seeking relief from emotional pain and suffering or unbearable feelings. It might also consist of confronting shadows from your past or healing from a traumatic past event. I see my work as a psychotherapist as accompanying you on your journey together, where I hope to support you in finding growth, balance, and a sense of harmony and peace. I also offer K9-assisted therapy.

Successful counselling is based on the quality of the relationship between myself (the therapist) and you (the client). My approach is based on deep respect and non-judgemental acceptance for all people I work with. Utilising an element of creativity within therapy enables you to speak through art making, and reflection, because sometimes spoken words don’t exist for your experience. In my practice I offer counselling and arts therapy, professional supervision and coaching, and career development.

If you’re at a point in life where you’re wrestling with issues or experiencing the impact of past challenges, you might be unsure of what to do about it or you may be losing hope in facing the struggle. Counselling provides the opportunity to see new perspectives and discovering new ways of moving towards where you want to go. Through the words uttered and exchanged in our conversations, counselling gives the chance to create, redefine, and author the stories you want in your life. Whatever it is you're going through, I look forward to meeting you as you are and figuring out together who or where you might want to be.

I see therapy as a safe space where you can work through whatever is causing you stress or distress in your life. Therapy can allow you to explore your thoughts, emotions and behaviours, learn different ways of coping, process grief and traumatic experiences, improve relationship dynamics, and learn to manage psychological and physical symptoms. I work in a down-to-earth, friendly, and professional manner. I try to help my clients feel as comfortable as possible discussing their difficulties with me, and draw on my full range of training and professional

Becoming flexible - physically, socially, and psychologically, means we have the clarity of choice.

I will teach you how to work with your nervous system and to identify how to rise above your challenges. Ultimately headed towards the thriving life you know you deserve.

There are times in life when we all need someone to talk to, who will not judge us or make us feel ashamed. I seek to provide a place where women and men are able to process the disappointments of life that lead to unhelpful behaviours and difficult relationships. In my work with couples and individuals, I provide a safe environment where both people can explore the issues that have caused them to build walls rather than bridges between them. I have years of experience helping clients to identify the triggers for unhelpful and destructive behaviours and offer ongoing support to choose new directions and pathways towards their goals

We all go through life events. At times more intense and at times quite bearable. If you are struggling with mental health, medical, relational or life difficulties, would like to feel more in control, feel stuck or need some objective help, guidance or coping skills, make contact and get the process started.

Perhaps you don't feel comfortable sharing certain aspects of yourself with them or maybe there isn't anyone there you can actually trust/ talk to.

UNIQUE I don’t believe in “one solution fits all”. So I do an initial assessment and get to know you and your therapy goals. I train in different methods and techniques and tailor the session to your needs. HOLISTIC My approach to well-being and happiness is holistic. I look at the different elements in your life and your environment to better understand where you are at right now and what you need. I work on being present, mindful, and accepting. EMPOWERING I believe in giving people tools to apply in their lives outside of the therapy room. I like to give people the autonomy to make choices and perfect their reflective skills.

Emotionally Focused Counsellors
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
