I trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy so am interested in the ways that our early relationships impact our lives.
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.

I am a psychotherapist, a supervisor, and a sex therapist; these disciplines intertwine and inform my clinical practice every day. My approach is psychodynamic , which means that you and I will work together, which will help us to unravel the meanings and interpretations that sometimes are affecting the way we see our life and the patterns we find ourselves in. When psychotherapy meets sex therapy, this tool encompasses all and every aspect of a person’s expressions of life.

I am trained extensively in a number of modalities including CBT and psychodynamic psychotherapy.
As an ACC therapist, I help people cope with sexual abuse trauma, brain injuries, chronic pain, childhood abuse or neglect, and the effects of family violence. Private clients often come with "problems of living", including grief and bereavement, health challenges, relationship problems and work-related stress. Others seek help for anxiety and depression, or for more serious mental health difficulties, including bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder. I also apply my skills in helping people sifting through complicated issues in the domain of wealth counselling.

Having an in-depth understanding of how our early beginnings impact our view of self, life, and relationships, assists me to support my clients toward developing empathy and compassion for themselves and others. I believe this can be an integral factor in the healing process and in attaining a sense of personal freedom.

My therapy practice is informed by Psychodynamic and Systemic psychotherapy.
I am a culturally sensitive therapist with much international experience. My multicultural experience has been built by living and working in 7 countries across 3 continents. I have gained a unique set of skills that helps me see the world through the eyes of a diverse range of clients. There are factors that have a direct impact on a client’s therapeutic experience, such as race, ethnicity, privilege, religion, and socioeconomic factors. Being a culturally sensitive therapist helps me establish a strong therapeutic alliance, where my clients feel accepted, respected and understood, which is a prerequisite for successful therapy.

Perhaps you have tried strategies that no longer work. Perhaps you have had support before and would now like to try it again or continue where you left off. Perhaps there is something specific that you would like to gain more insight into and healing from. Whatever your reason for coming, you will find a safe, non-judgemental and accepting environment where you will have a confidential space to bring whatever you would like to work through at a pace and depth that feels safe to you.

Better Self - Better Relationships - Better World. If you're wanting more confidence in yourself, more trust in your relationships, and more acceptance in the world, then I may be able to help. You'll find me an active listener. Through evidence-based interventions, I'll build a supportive therapeutic alliance with you, enabling you to achieve positive change. However, this requires your commitment to effort, time, and investment. The average course is some half dozen sessions, while deeper issues generally need more. Currently, I'm able to offer $890 as prepayment for 6 standard 50-minute sessions - more than a 10% discount.

My approach combines professionalism, honesty, warmth and humour, without judgement. I take a holistic approach to mental health and wellbeing, exploring lifestyle and health, as well as emotional factors. During the first session, I will spend time getting to know you and what has brought you to counselling. We will then identify what the goals of therapy will be, and together, build a strong relationship in order to help you achieve these. I will take into consideration who you are as a person, what your needs are and tailor an individual approach.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
