About me

I believe that the role of a counsellor, is to support an individual through their journey of personal development. I am a qualified and experienced counsellor, dance movement psychotherapist and supervisor, with over 14 years of experience. In my work, I place primary emphasis on the relationship between the client and the therapist. From there, each client can start the journey of exploration and appreciate their own individuation.

The person-centred perspective, psychodynamic discipline and Authentic Movement define my practice. Working inter-changeably with dialogue, movement, imagery and creative means.

I would be happy to offer an initial face-to-face consultation or answer any inquiries by email or phone.
