About me

I aim to create a safe, creative and flexible space for biographical counselling, biography work and psychotherapy.
I offer counselling and psychotherapy for clients with individual issues, themes, concerns, coming from different age groups and variety of backgrounds. The space provided invites the client to become active with their life questions, crises and dilemmas, potentially creating a new vision of themselves, others and life. The client may explore for new direction, realise untapped potential and purpose in life. The individual may enter at their own pace a deeper understanding of their thinking, feelings and actions. Counselling may lead to a renewed energy, healing, better general well being and balance.
Biography work offers a specific but individual way to explore a person's rhythms, patterns, constitution, choices, decisions, steps, jobs, tasks and events (inner and outer) which may encourage self empowerment, decision making and overall clarity. This type of work may be beneficial for a client looking at a specific theme or question in life.
I recommend a free initial meeting (approx. 30 min) to discuss further what is offered and what the client could expect.
