About me and my therapy practice

Our aim will be to develop resilience, not dependency and to move from survival to thriving…

We all go through hard times and sometimes speaking to someone neutral who can listen without judgement and who can ask questions in ways that get you to think differently about your situation can help towards finding the motivation to re-connect with life, to navigate new terrain and to ease the burden of difficult times.

Many people assume counselling is a drawn-out process, that incurs emotional pain and will involve repeatedly going over sad or traumatic stories. Counselling however can be uplifting, insightful and empowering. It is about re-connecting with your power and strength; taking responsibility for your own happiness in life and becoming the best version of yourself.

I am an Integrative Counsellor and Coach which means I employ a variety of evidence based therapeutic skills and interventions depending on your needs and background. My training draws on a variety of disciplines and modalities ranging from holistic therapy, narrative therapy, body-based psychotherapy, mindfulness, systemic family therapy, coaching, creative arts therapy, CBT and NLP. 

I have accumulated over 10 years’ worth of experience in various settings both nationally and internationally working with adults, children and young people on various issues relating to mental health and wellbeing, trauma and healing, coaching and personal development.

I value working collaboratively, creatively and transparently. My hope & intention is to assist you to reach a place where you appreciate your own capabilities and qualities to live a meaningful and balanced life. I am here to help you on this journey. If you would like any more information, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
