About me

I collaboratively support clients who want to recover from anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, trauma, codependency, attachment wounds, and domestic and narcissistic abuse.
These symptoms affect all areas of life including work, parenting, relationships and social activities.

Healthy self-esteem is crucial if we want to be happy and resilient during difficult times but this is hard to do when we feel down or stressed, and making simple decisions can be overwhelming.

 If you have felt anxious or low consistently in your life, you may have an anxious attachment style and living this way is exhausting; making us physically and emotionally unwell leading to burnout. However, with the right help you can recover from this.

Invest in your happiness and well-being today.
