Welcome to my profile
There are times in our lives that we face challenges and sometimes we feel that no one in our close circle can help us. In these moments we might feel lost, confused, abandoned, lonely therefore a good listener, a confidential space and a committed person can assist our journey to gain better insight and understanding of our processes. I hope that this is something I can offer you.
In difficult times where we are seeking professional support it is important to look for a therapist who is well trained and qualified to attend to your psychological and spiritual well-being.
I am a very experienced psychotherapeutic practitioner, trainer and supervisor. I work with couples, individuals, polyamorous relationships and groups across a variety of issues including stress, anxiety, depression and bereavement through to the more specialised area of sexual and gender identity and sex addiction. I am also specialised in mental health and healing processes.
My style is relational Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. I I believe that a good relationship between tje therapist amd the cloemt can bring healing and reparation.
