About Me

I am a qualified humanistic therapist who is passionate about co-creating a therapeutic relationship to facilitate change or increased understanding for clients. I've experience of working with depression, anxiety, insomnia, trauma, substance use, relationships, parenting & loss in addition to many other life events.

I work from a humanistic modality, which means that I believe in the human propensity to work towards growth when a facilitative environment is created. In this case, the facilitating environment is our working relationship. It's through our co-created relationship that I'll begin to understand your frame of reference and we’ll work through whichever emotion or awareness you bring to the room. Be it from the past, present or future.

I work creatively and I’m interested in the stories we tell of ourselves. Often, I may use imagery, metaphor, dreams and interventions so we can explore your sense of Self through a holistic lens. Ultimately, I believe in the transformative power of connection.

Part of therapy is an increase in self-awareness, becoming more aware of our reactions to situations or people, identifying the connected emotions and understanding them. I see our work as collaborative and sometimes I may suggest a book to read, mindfulness or another tool that might guide you to a greater sense of Self.
