If I have to define my practice in one word, that word is safety. Safety means building a professional relationship based on trust and communication. It means working together to set a pace and direction. It may be processing traumatic memories or taking a break. This is something we work out together.


I really love my career helping people. I love joining alongside someone to help them process grief, harmful memories or negative thoughts. I love the collaborative nature of therapy and the hope it brings.


My qualifications include a Master of Arts degree in Counselling Psychology, training in EMDR and Theraplay. I integrate the Polyvagal Theory and other approaches into my sessions. I am a registered psychotherapist qualifying with the College of Registered Psychotherapists.


With gratitude,
