I specialise in supporting clients to improve well-being on a mental, physical, emotional and spiritual level and cultivate a positive and healthy relationship with themselves and others. Oftentimes my clients are navigating stressful life events, negative thoughts, habits or patterns that aren't serving them, fearful thinking and/or low self-esteem. I hold a safe space for each of my clients and empower them to welcome all thoughts, feelings, emotions, sensations as they are, gently with no judgement. I also support my clients to discover their strengths, passions and purpose and find meaning, joy and happiness in their lives.

We all want to live a life full of meaning and purpose. But sometimes our thoughts and feelings, habits, and attitudes seem to get in the way. The struggle with thoughts and feelings often leads to self-limiting choices and habits. Whatever difficulties you may be experiencing, there is always the potential for change. Reaching out to someone with a compassionate ear and practical suggestions is a first step in the right direction. I am passionate about helping people who are struggling, using tools I have learned through years of study, combined with my own personal life experiences and qualities.

I am dedicated to nurturing children's wellbeing so that they can experience life knowing they are of value and having inner strengths to draw on. I work with children (3yrs - 12yrs) experiencing emotional, social and behavioural difficulties. I use play therapy to help children through both common childhood struggles and more serious concerns. Play is used because children can express more through play than they are able to with words, and because play provides a way for children to work through struggles that feels safe. Play therapy is an evidence based practice.

I work with people on their healing journey who are over 20yrs who are not finding meaning in their life struggles. It may be despondency, fear, difficulties in relationships, a lack of self-compassion and/or other issues that fuel their troubles. Within the therapeutic relationship we explore what's been previously unheard and unacknowledged to find a place of safety, ease and peace inside and out. Difficult feelings are signals to unmet needs, and together we explore and work through unfinished business and grief to arrive at needs being met, self-acceptance and previously untapped positive energy.

The people who find most success in psychotherapy are motivated and able to develop a good relationship with their therapist. They have good insight and are willing to meet weekly or in some cases more regularly to maintain an emotional attachment. This is the basis of healing, learning and understanding thoughts, feelings and how they influence behaviour. Developmentally the earlier the trauma the more frequent contact needs to be. I enjoy working in the community. A community based approach is more relational work as opposed to analytical.

I work with people on all sorts of things that life may throw up. My work challenges a lot of your thought processes while teaching you skills. While in my work a lot of talking is involved you still have the choice of what you wish to share. I use different modalities and therapies based on the clients needs, responses, and the outcomes the client seeks. All my work, is respectful of you as a person and your needs, even though it can be challenging at times. Success is the work you take away and use to help yourself. I provide psychoeducation and tools to help you. All my work is collaborative.

I understand that challenges come up in work, in relationships, or inside of ourselves and I listen and share with you some new tools and perspectives to deal with your emotions and situations in a much more positive and helpful way.

You have trouble sleeping. You're tired (mind the pun) of lying awake at night tossing & turning. The thought of going to bed makes you worry. You don't drop off when you put your head on your pillow. If you do, you wake up during the night and can't get back to sleep for hours. You worry about the toll your sleeplessness is having on your health, your mood, your relationships and your ability to function at work. You want to sleep better. You want to look forward to bedtime. You want to wake up feeling refreshed. You want to feel like sleep isn't controlling your life. Assess your insomnia here: https://www.thebettersleepclinic.com

What method of therapy is right for me?
