About me

My Practice:

Seeking therapy can be a daunting task. I offer a safe space where you can talk about your thoughts and feelings.

I practice Existential-Phenomenological psychotherapy with an emphasis on exploring lived experience, wrestling with uncertainty and finding meaning. I am interested in creativity and Jung's idea of working with images and active imagination.

I also believe mindfulness can help with emotional well-being and have a regular meditation practice.

Over the years I have helped clients with the following issues:

- Addictions
- Depression and emptiness
- Anxiety and panic attacks
- Relationships problems
- Low self worth
- Career or midlife changes
- Reconnecting and exploring creativity

I offer supervision both clinical and academic

Please note: I have no evening slots available at the moment
