About me

As an integrative counsellor and mindful practitioner I combine different models of counselling, tailored to suit my client's needs. I initially trained as a person centred/ humanistic counsellor in South Africa in 1994. In 2003 I trained  as a trauma counsellor, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) working with victims of violent crime, rape and domestic abuse. Alongside my counselling training I developed my mindfulness and meditation practice and also started my journey as a professional artist. Over time I have integrated these skills into my counselling practice.

How I work.

I take time to listen to you and understand your situation. I offer a professional, but also a real, emphatic, human connection. Essentially our psychological and emotional well being is affected and connected to all other aspects of our lives. Sometimes we become over-whelmed with the impact of past or present events, unable to shake free from our thoughts or move beyond the pain that those memories or experiences create. I offer a safe, confidential space with a professional to whom you are unattached, where you can spend time sharing your difficulties without being judged. My work often includes breathing, visualisation and/or creative techniques suited to match you and your thinking styles. Counselling can be tough, but working through pain can offer clarity and relief, helping you to regain a sense of control and empowerment.

I offer both short term (6 to 8 sessions), or long term counselling depending on your individual requirements, which we can discuss further in our initial session.

The easiest way to contact me is to send me an email or text with your contact details and I'll get back to as soon as I can.

I look forward to meeting you.
