The safe and compassionate support I provide will allow you to explore your life experiences, any issue you bring with you and allow you to make meaning for yourself. I focus on providing a safe space for you to develop self-compassion as the foundation for the work we do together. Sometimes early coping strategies can limit our full expression later in life. Through our work together, you will gain awareness of what is happening and how. I will encourage you to appreciate your qualities and strengths, consider what you want to keep and take with you, and what you might be ready to let go of, so you can live your life more fully.
Dip. Counselling & Comm.
I continue to support my practice with professional development and supervision and have significant training in neuroscience, attachment and trauma. I recently attended training in these areas with Dr. Pat Ogden, Dr. Janina Fisher and Babette Rothschild and previously with Dr Bessel van der Kolk and Dr Pieter Rossouw.
Over the last fifteen years, I've worked in a range of community organisations, offering individual counselling support and group facilitation for people affected by adoption, trauma and addiction, bereavement, and families facing homelessness. I have been in private psychotherapy practice since 2013 and continue my work providing post-adoption counselling and intermediary support for a post-adoption specialist organisation.

I work with individuals and groups and have a special interest in adoption, attachment, trauma and bereavement....
