About me

My work is grounded in a philosophy of inclusiveness and embraces all cultures and identities. I deeply regard ordinary human suffering and welcome all experiences you may bring into the therapy room. 

I intend to cultivate an authentic, respectful relationship with you. Whatever you are struggling with, we can understand your difficulties and create a space for change and growth.

I have over 15 years of experience with both individuals and couples looking for solutions to:

  • Relationship difficulties and divorce; bereavement, grief, and loss
  • Anger management; depression, anxiety, and panic attacks
  • Abuse (Sexual, Psychological, Emotional, Physical, Spiritual, Honour-based, Financial)
  • Trauma and stress; low self-esteem; addictions and eating disorders
  • Mid-life crisis; spiritual difficulties; redundancy
  • A sense of not belonging and alienation or living across cultures; Identity
  • Sex, Sexuality, and Gender

I offer psychotherapy and counselling, both long term and short term. Psychotherapy is at its best with questions about life and relationships.
