Life can be so messy, chaotic, stressful and anxiety -provoking, and for many there is a sense of isolation and shame in merely surviving.
My passion is working with clients who want to develop themselves at a personal and relational level. My ideal client is someone who has experienced great difficulty in life, whether it's an issue that persists from childhood or is more a recent trauma or setback; someone who understands that they need help and want to move forward in their lives, bringing tangible and sustainable change.....and freedom. I get excited about the transformational aspect that therapy can bring.

I work with various psychological issues including anxiety , depression, abuse, childhood traumas and neglect, parenting, relationship problems, poor self-esteem and self-confidence, anger issues, phobias, bereavement and loss, race and identity dynamics, performance anxiety , burn-out, addictive behaviour, personality problems as well as spiritual emptiness.
My work focusses on clients who are struggling with the effects of childhood abuse and trauma as well as the emotional effects related to narcissistic abuse, past or present. I provide a space for clients to feel safe and to allow them to loosen their defences they needed to protect themselves and to understand their inner world and change old repetitive and obstructive patterns of being and relating. My focus is in working with young and older adults. I also include expressive therapy approaches, where needed, as a means to access emotions and experiences that are difficult to verbalise.

No doubt you are looking at this site because you want something in your life to change. You want to feel better, get out of a repetitive rut, make some relationship changes or improvements, or just feel better within your own skin. My clients find it a huge relief to share and process their concerns - within the safe space of my counselling room or via secure online therapy. I believe strongly in a gentle therapy method - a non-judgemental and compassionate attitude - creating a safe, nurturing space for healing and change to begin. I am very aware of how vulnerable one feels in making that first appointment. It is worth it!

One of the main wellsprings of therapy is love. People arrive with spilling pockets and framed seams from various forms of love gone wrong, each with their own story: of love that has nowhere to go; a love lost or denied, twisted or betrayed, perverted and shackled to violence. These broken attachments are what I work with. Having studied the science, history, philosophy and art of therapy for 10 years, I know that when people get enough exposure to kindness, sanity, and care, we can empty those pockets and knit seams together.

Sometimes life can be hard and we can feel overwhelmed and defeated by circumstances and experiences. Do you feel disconnected or isolated from your friends and family? Do you feel tired all the time? Do you feel burned out? Do you feel anxious and uncertain about what's happening in your life?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, I am here to hold your hand and listen to what you have experienced, how you think, and how you feel.

At times we may feel stuck or overwhelmed. We may know what is causing unease or pain, but often we struggle to understand the cause. A therapy relationship at these times, can bring better understanding and help you think in new ways about yourself, your relationships and your journey forward.

Anxiety Counsellors

What are the most common treatments for anxiety?

Talk therapy, particularly cognitive behavioural therapy, is the most common treatment for anxiety. Studies have shown it is equally effective as medication. Other popular forms of therapy are popular, depending on a patient’s experience. Exposure therapy, for instance, can be useful for people dealing with fears and phobias, or who have experienced traumatic events. Dialectical Behavioural Therapy may be useful for patients who need help with emotion regulation. Anxiolytic medications, like benzodiazepines, can also help with calming a person enough to focus on the skills they’ve learned, and physical exercise has been shown to help symptoms of anxiety across the board.

How long does therapy for anxiety take to work?

The amount of time needed to alleviate symptoms depends on the severity of a person’s condition. Some therapies may take 5-20 weekly sessions to show results. Anti-depressant medications typically take two to four weeks before a benefit is felt. Anti-anxiety medications are felt typically within 20-30 minutes. Medications are best used to offer a patient a better headspace in which to work on techniques learned in therapy. Exercise, improved sleep habits, and meditation are effective, but takes weeks or months to show results.

When should I seek treatment for anxiety?

Everyone feels anxious at times, but when anxiety causes disruption to your daily life, it may be time to seek help. Such disruption can be mental, physical, or both: having fear dominate your thoughts, avoiding situations or objects that bring on feelings of anxiety, or experiencing shortness of breath, sweating, dizziness, or panic attacks. When these symptoms are recurrent and distressing, it may be time to talk to someone.

How effective is treatment for anxiety?

Treatment for anxiety has been shown to be moderately to highly effective, according to a large body of psychology studies and analyses. For some people, treatment using CBT or exposure therapy alone is effective. Others respond best to a combination of medication and therapy.
