    Empathic, warm, practical and passionate about my work, I will meet you where you are in this perhaps difficult moment, curious about what makes you" tick" so as to move forward. I specialise in treating trauma, anxiety, chronic pain, stress.

    For some people there could be benefit in Mindfulness Based approaches. Each person is unique in this regard . For others, recovery is needed from over-immersion in meditation ,which can bring up awareness of needed psychological healing and resolution....
