As a counselling therapist, I offer you unconditional positive regard and a safe space to investigate your current challenges and personal growth through the trauma informed modalities of cognitive behaviour therapy and narrative therapy combined with somatic explorations and active imagination. With these approaches, the texture of your lived experience reveals the myriad ways of how to know ‘yourself,’ accept and expand your self-understanding.

My mind and body studies began with a degree in physical education which led to anthropology, Buddhist psychology and merged with yoga philosophy and teaching. And in key challenges of my life, I have received emotional support through counselling therapy that deepened and complimented mindfulness practices. This process was so nurturing and insightful that I wanted to support others in uniting their unique emotional, mental and spiritual journeys.
