Practice description

Depression & Anxiety

Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counselling and support you can start to understand who you are and address some of the causes.

Trauma & PTSD

Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. I can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. As a midwife I am specialised in offering trauma therapy following a traumatic pregnancy or birth experience


As a midwife I have been with families during both joyous & devastating life changing experiences. Being a midwife is about grief as well as joy. I can offer experienced bereavement support to individuals, couples and families who are processing the devastating loss of a baby.
