My job is about focusing on you, on what troubles you, what excites you, what moves you, what is missing and what you want. I work with you to explore these things and to help make meaning of them. Making meaning with the support of another is what heals. I love working with people generally, but have a special interest in birthing issues, parenting of the very young, post birth trauma & postnatal depression. I also have a strong focus on attachment issues in my adult clients.

    I work holistically and inter-relationally, supporting my clients to greater awareness of themselves and the way they interact with the world so that they may increase their sense of agency and thus their range of choices....
