About me

I am a registered psychotherapist and chartered psychologist. I am licensed to use various techniques and protocols that neutralise high arousal states such as anxiety, and this can significantly reduce the time needed to deal with difficult situations.

I’m committed to helping people change, and to transform their lives into more of what they want. Standing still, feeing stuck, frozen, powerless, helpless, or despairing about yourself or your situation is a very painful place to be. I bring a voice of hope for what is possible.

In psychotherapy we become more conscious and aware of who we are and what forces are driving us.  These insights provide the foundation for change and open us up to taking new steps, feeling new things, thinking in a different way.

My approach to therapy encompasses the body, mind and spirit. In this holistic way of looking at things, the challenges we face provide opportunities for change, growth and transformation.

Sessions with me are relaxed and informal. In all cases I seek to create an authentic and empowering relationship with every client.
