I value the creation of a respectful and safe space to reflect and explore what might be impacting someone’s life, to be curious about what might’ve contributed to this, what might limit, and what might support the creation of positive change for people.

My early career has been predominantly in the areas of addictions [substance misuse, Gambling etc] and mental health, which has offered me a rich experience in supporting people in their transformation journeys.

I have been in private practice for fifteen years. I work from the premise that I’m Okay-You’re Okay-They’re Okay. I believe people know what they need and can create the changes within themselves to manifest changes in their relationships.

I am able to support people to work through issues that include self-esteem or self-worth, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, trauma, relationship issues, life transitions, spirituality, sexuality, cultural issues, and employment problems.

I aim to support people to approach life and face their very personal challenges to create those changes they want for themselves and their lives. I respect, and I am always humbled and inspired, by the privilege to walk alongside another’s transformational journey.
