I offer short or long-term psychotherapy to adults, couples, young people (age 15 & up), families and other groups. I also offer Clinical Supervision for professionals and students.

Statement of purpose : My mission is to inspire people to embrace life with all its contradictions and equip them with the tools necessary to achieve success and build better relationships. I am passionate about helping people see situations as opportunities to grow and evolve, in order to experience all the good things life has to offer. I work alongside individuals to bring focus and clarification in identifying what steps to take in the process of transformation. My role is to support people to solve lifelong issues, achieve their goals, continue to develop their vision, increase life satisfaction, and gain success & happiness.

Experience : I have close to 10 years experience working in high-intensity clinical settings, involving individual and group therapy. I have a proven track record in providing effective treatment for a variety of different psychological and behavioural issues. My experience extends to working with people diagnosed with mental health issues, & related problems, family breakdowns, relationship issues, trauma/PTSD, depression and anxiety and sexual abuse.

I have management experience and provide clinical and professional supervision for professionals from the mental health and the medical field, including doctors, nurses, dentists and physiotherapists. I have also worked with business leaders including CEOs and other managers, supporting them to develop healthy and successful businesses.
