Client Types : Adults (18+)
Psychotherapy Services : I welcome people from all backgrounds with all kinds of suffering. Together we will work to identify underlying causes of unhelpful behaviours, emotional experience and thought patterns. Within the confidential non-judgemental space of therapy you will be invited to share whatever may be troubling you, whether that is a current situation or a longer term issue. Together we will seek to process, clarify, and create space to make new choices and live a happier life.
I have experience working with people who suffer from depression, anxiety, effects of abuse, unsatisfying relationships, sexual identity, grief & loss, low self-esteem, identity crises, life transitions, divorce, post-natal depression, parent/child struggles, disordered eating, chronic illness, complex trauma and more. I work privately and in the public sector and have an acute awareness of the challenges we face as a society and the pressures we are under as individuals as a result.
Specialism : I have a keen interest in mind-body psychotherapy which asserts that our emotional story is related to physical manifestations of illness i.e. “The body keeps the score”. If you have complex chronic health problems see the link on my website for more information about whole-person healthcare.
My Approach : I work primarily from a relational psychodynamic framework and utilise some CBT and mindfulness techniques. I offer short and long term psychotherapy depending on your needs and concerns and will tailor my approach to suit you as an individual. Everybody is unique, I am curious about your story and hopeful our work can facilitate the change and relief you are seeking.
Professional Memberships : I am a clinically trained, registered psychotherapist (PBANZ).
