About me

My work focuses on emotional wellbeing, supporting you through transitions, with a non-judgmental approach, and helping you to rediscover your true Self to reveal your own meaning in this process we call 'Life.'

My practice is grounded in the person-centred model, and I work with an holistic approach and very much tune in to each individual client who comes before me. I counsel with a spiritual perspective (nothing to do with institutionalised religion, and everything to do with expressing your true Self), combining the esoteric (mindfulness, embodiment, meditations, etc.) with the creative process. I’m passionate about emotional wellbeing as it underpins authentic living.

I have worked with a diverse group of clients suffering from mental health issues ranging from low self-esteem, anxiety, and depression, to deeper issues of the inner child, impacted grief, trauma from domestic violence, and managing personality disorders.

I offer open-ended counselling but review after six weeks. Most clients find it useful to have a break to process insights and shifting perspectives. For clients who find it difficult to articulate verbally, we work on broadening their emotional vocabulary through non-verbal codes, using colour, shape, form, metaphor, and symbolic sight to gain insights into emotional imprints and patterns of behaviour.
