Welcome. I am a clinically trained registered psychotherapist. I offer a warm, collaborative and confidential space for you to explore any aspects of your life that are causing you pain and holding you back from living a satisfying and enjoyable life.
Together, we will seek to clarify the impacts of your early years, the drives behind unhelpful behaviours and most importantly where to from here. As we understand ourselves more deeply, we create space and freedom to have a better relationship with ourselves and those around us.
I have experience in working with people with depression, anxiety, OCD, grief & loss, addiction, disordered eating, chronic illness, self-harm, post-natal depression, divorce, complex trauma, parenting issues, relationship and sexual difficulties. I work primarily from a relational psychodynamic framework with some mindfulness and behavioural techniques.
I welcome people of all gender identifications, sexualities, cultures and religious backgrounds and offer short and long term psychotherapy depending on your needs and concerns.
We live in increasingly challenging times. Whether you have a diagnosis or just curious about how therapy can help you navigate your circumstances, I warmly invite you to make contact to discuss working together.
During my internship at Auckland Hospital Immunology Department, I worked with specialists to offer patients a mind-body approach to their treatment and learned that the body speaks. If you have complex or chronic health problems there is a growing evidence base that suggests exploring your emotional story can have profound effects on your physical health.
