About me

My work is about making life more meaningful and creative, whatever these may mean for you. I aim to support you to discover and connect with your unique way of being in the world and to inspire change through exploring difficulties as well as your deepest yearnings.

You may be feeling stuck in your present situation and are seeking a new life direction and/or have relationship problems, anxiety, disturbing body symptoms or traumatic experience. Central to my approach is an assumption that in every troubling experience is a hidden opportunity for growth. I work in a way that makes accessible the inherent potential, creativity and meaning in these disturbances, and that creates space for you to connect with your own resources.
