About me and my therapy practice

Psychotherapy is a relational journey in which client and therapist work together to foster insight and understanding, to ease suffering and to recover a life of meaning, authenticity and connection. Held within the safe, sacred space of the therapeutic relationship the work unfolds over time as we attend to the deep questions of heart and soul. Through this process we invite the possibility of healing and of a person discovering the truth of who they are and how they want to live.

I specialise in areas of emotional and psychological issues such as childhood trauma, depression, emotional crisis, anxiety, grief and addictions as well as existential issues such as purpose, death, faith, spirituality and spiritual emergency.

As an Integrative psychotherapist I draw from different theoretical approaches according to the needs and sensibilities of my clients, creating a unique therapeutic relationship with each individual human being that seeks my assistance.

I have been professionally involved in the healing arts for over 20 years. My teachers and principle influences are James Hollis, Petruska Clarkson, Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell, D.W. Winnicott, Irvin Yallom and Marion Woodman. My background lies in yoga, meditation and body work. I am also profoundly interested in the mythopoeic imagination, ritual and initiation.
