About me

Thank you for being here and taking steps towards your better wellbeing.

I'm a therapist with a focus on anxiety, trauma, family dynamics and cultural impact. I help adults and young people who may be feeling anxious, stressed, sad, depressed, numb, stuck or fearful; experiencing effects of trauma, family issues, narcissistic personality disorder and emotional abuse, low self esteem and loneliness. 

Family dynamics is explored especially if linked to your anxiety. In addition, cultural impact and how that influences family patterns, leading to mental health distress is my area of expertise.

I work holistically, meaning I look at the whole self, past present, family dynamics, learning about parts of you that may have become a shadow. Using an integrative approach by applying relevant therapeutic models, together we will explore the cause of your anxiety or trauma. My aim is to empower you with tools to manage the psychological disturbance that is causing the issue you are presenting. 

If you are 'stuck', 'fearful', 'frozen' unable to make a change or move forward, you are using  subconscious methods from early years. These methods of coping  are no longer serving you in adulthood resulting in the 'stuckness' or 'frozen' state leading to anxiety or trauma. Usually, these are layers of conditioning that have not been unravelled.

Through counselling, once you develop a clear vision as a result of your willingness to heal from triggers or limiting beliefs you will learn how to meet unmet needs and be able to manage or even overcome anxiety or trauma.

Initial consultation

Initially, we will have a consultation so that I better understand your experience, describe to you the therapeutic process and ascertain if I am the right fit for your needs.

I ask my clients to keep an open mind when embarking on counselling and during the therapeutic process. You will learn tips and tools and have space to explore the issue in a non-judgemental space met with empathy.

If you would like a free 30 minute call to ask any questions, you can book this easily here.
