I have been helping people on their journey of healinng and self discovery for many years, with over ten years in private practice.
Before going into private practice I worked at different organisations, specialising in counselling for addictions, career counselling, crisis counselling, and counselling for complex trauma.
Having practiced meditation for many years, it is a very exciting time in the field of psychology now that the benefits of mindfulness practices are well recognised. I enjoy incorporating mindfulness and compassion practices in my work as they are a very gentle and effective way to help ease the suffering that comes from hurt, shame, worry, fear and pain.
Being drawn to body-mind therapies and traditional healing methods, I also trained for four years in Brennan Healing Science with Dr Barbara Ann Brennan. Dr Brennan’s work blends psychotherapy with an understanding of the human energy field. This work also informs my practice as a psychologist. My perspecitve is holistic and I have deep respect for how complex we each are due to our history, our woundings, beliefs and physiology.
Each person’s journey is unique and I enjoy weaving together the skills and knowledge I’ve gained over the years to help people with the challenges they are facing.
