My primary role is to assist the individual in raising their awareness of themselves and of the world around them. From this state they are more empowered with knowledge and understanding of the choices they can make that will best serve them.
I use a range of therapeutic techniques such as person centered, solution focused, gestalt and narrative therapy. I also assist the client to connect more deeply with their body through felt sense to more fully understand what is true for them beyond ideals and beliefs of the mind.
I have been practicing in the counselling/psychotherapy field since 2005. During this time I have assisted many individuals with issues such as addictions, disordered eating, depression, anxiety, childhood issues, self-esteem, self confidence and relationship issues. I possess an open straight forward approach yet am highly sensitive and responsive to my clients needs.
I became interested in the counselling profession after a period of struggling with my own demons and emotional issues. I found that through this time the most difficult aspect was the lack of understanding I received from others and my own inability to reach out, this created feelings of isolation and hopelessness which I found difficult to bear. Now fully recovered I share an insiders understanding of emotional distress and offer true support and felt understanding coupled with professional education, training and experience to provide my client’s with a well rounded, therapeutic experience.

- Addictions – smoking, alcoholism, drug use and gambling
- Weight problems, disordered eating and an unhealthy lifestyle
- Relationships issues and divorce

- Trauma & Abuse
- Domestic Violence Survivors
- Self-Esteem and Confidence
