About me

I am a qualified and experienced humanistic and integrative counsellor and dance movement psychotherapist with over 14 years of experience. The person-centred perspective, psychodynamic discipline and Authentic Movement define my practice.

I believe that therapy is a place of growth. Working inter-changeably with dialogue, movement, imagery and creative means, I encourage clients to connect with their feelings. From there, they can share what is most pressing and relevant for them at the present moment and make new connections and discoveries about themselves, in a journey of exploration, acceptance and appreciation of their own individuality.
