Drawing on more than thirty years of personal and professional development in Australia, Germany and the US, I bring a deeply humanistic approach to my work - which centres on the primacy of relationship in all aspects of human experience. My contemporary neuroscience informed paradigm emphasises the profound impact of early relational experience on adult mental and physical health; and elevates the therapeutic relationship to the single most important element in effective mental health treatment. A trained somatic psychotherapist, I have extensive experience identifying and treating all forms of trauma - in particular the often misunderstood and misdiagnosed symptoms of complex, developmental and relational trauma.
