About me and my therapy practice

I aim to 'meet you where you are' in order to 'walk forwards with you'.


My training is wide ranging which gives me an ability to work with adolescents, adults and families.  I am trained integratively which encompasses CBT - how one thinks.  Psychodynamically meaning the relevance of 'the past in the present' meaning how and why is history repeating and especially pertinent to past trauma, however, understands 'personal trauma' and, of course Person Centred, this means 'you are in control', you take me where you wish us to go.......................

Currently undertaking doctoral research from an Existential Perspective, this assists in comprehending 'what is going on for you right now and how to manage your life on life's terms' in the here and now going forward.


Practice description

I have experience with addictions, relationship challenges, trauma experience from all aspects of abuse.  Existential anxiety and depression and the many and varied manifestating difficulties that impact on functioning out there in the world and within your family.

I am all about comprehending and finding ways to change situations that create psychological and emotional angst.
