About Me

As far as anyone can tell, you have it all sorted with your can-do attitude and "I got this" mindset. But on the inside, you are struggling to surface for air and your anxiety is tipping you down another rabbit hole of overwhelming stress. Yet you keep on 'keeping on' because this busyness fills your day with a sense of purpose. And stops those pesky, worrying thoughts from popping up and pulling on your insecurities.
Perhaps you’ve tried it all: the mindfulness apps, the online yoga, the self-help books. They’re just not working anymore. You may even worry about going down the medication route. Sick and tired of suffering quietly and powering through your wobbles, you’re now ready to make a change.
It's completely normal to want to get rid of pain as quickly as possible, like anxiety or depression, but real healing takes place on a deeper level. People who often come to me for support want to tackle the immediate issues that are current and pressing and find personal resolve to the bigger issues rooted in the past. If this sounds like you, you’ll likely appreciate my non-judgemental and supportive counselling style, and creative and thought-provoking therapy approach.
If you’re looking to move beyond just coping to real healing, I can help you get unstuck, pin-point tricky blind spots and heal these hard-to-scar-over wounds. By combining insight-driven talk therapy + action-based and body-oriented creative therapy, I can help you experience the long-lasting change and growth you are looking for.
My mind and body approach to therapy is about treating the whole person and not the just the symptoms on the surface. I’m also a Jungian at heart so enjoy working with imagination, archetypes and dreams, and helping you connect with your inner child. This means you will be fully supported to heal whatever is still troubling you from the past so you can finally move forward in life.
I can help you find personal resolve in the following issues:
* anxiety 
* depression
* communication and self-expression
* identity and cultural issues
* loss and bereavement
* relationship issues (intimacy, trust, communication)
* post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
* trauma (historical or current, single incidents or ongoing events - e.g. abuse) 
* work-related stress and burnout

I offer a free 20 minute phone consultation.
