The strengths and values that inform my practice are my commitment to help people reach their desires and goals by a greater understanding of the ‘mind’; the mechanisms of the 'triune' brain, especially the ‘heart brain’ & emotions and their connection to the body; and the effects of these on our hope, health, spirituality, happiness, fortigenesis, and well-being. My approach is transpersonal in that I approach healing from a spiritual as well as a practical level.
I feel passionate about my commitment towards a deeper understanding of ‘well-being’ and ‘coping’, and how we can all work toward health and happiness by addressing each of our ‘four selves’
- the material or physical self
- the social or emotional Self
- the spiritual or individual Self
- the pure Ego or mental Self
My main experience has been working with adolescents, adults, the older generation and couples.
I have experience working in:
a Women’s Health Centre
a Family Support Group Centre
a Therapeutic Community,
a variety of non government organisations (NGOs)
EMDR, Emotional Freedom Techniques, HeartMath, Hypnotherapy, Inner Child, Interpersonal, Jungian, Mindfulness, Somatic Experiencing®, Transpersonal
I work from the premise that with the understanding of our mental, emotional, spiritual and physical being, our attachment and understanding of our first 7 years of life and resulting style of interaction with other people, enables a more meaningful relationship with ourselves. Being mindfully aware of our internal world enables our deeper connection and empathy to others, and helps build our hope, health, happiness, and resilience. My passion of working with the traumas, losses or grief we have experienced in our life and our current understanding of neuroplasticity, is that we can work on and change the behaviours we are having difficulty regulating.

I am available to provide counselling on a wide range of life experiences. I provide a safe and confidential environment that allows you to get in touch with your own healing resources and sense of empowerment. I work from an Interpersonal Neurobiology perspective which empowers you to decide the pace and therapy modality to reach your desired goals. I believe that if we work on finding and healing your true self - this enables you to know and live as an authentic self. ...
