About me

I offer a confidential space in which to pay attention to your current difficulties with compassion, gentle curiosity and creativity; with respect for your values, opinions and life choices. Our work together will be collaborative and proceed at your own pace.

You may choose to engage in short term counselling (up to 12 weeks) that addresses a specific problem or issue, or longer term psychotherapy that supports you to discover and explore patterns of thinking, feeling and relating that have adversely impacted your life experience.

In addition to 'talking therapy', I offer opportunities to work creatively using the arts, as well as breath and body work. These creative processes support us to:
- communicate when we can't find the words, don't know the words or when words are not enough
- develop awareness of our selves and others, which can lead to making more life-affirming choices
- express, explore and manage our feelings in a healthier manner
- develop flexibility and flow in our thoughts, behaviours and feeling
