ABOUT

I completed my Masters in Clinical Social Work in 2007. I was originally trained in Psychodynamic therapy but over the years have deepened my practice through continuously learning my trade and at the same time, living life. My work now incorporates other modalities such as attachment theory; mindfulness and emotion focused therapy for couples. Big life events that posed enormous challenges both emotionally and health wise, informed the experience which I bring to my practice. I help people look afresh at what is hurting them and bring in practical and 'in-the-here-and-now' strategies to understand and combat these challenges.


I help couples move beyond their polarised positions so that they can begin to understand each other's perspectives and focus on their relationship as a team effort. I work with empathy and listen acutely to what you have to say and what you are feeling, reflecting back to you what you are experiencing in a differently digested way. Often this alone is effective enough for people to 'hear' themselves think and feel themselves feel, in a way that brings insight and new awareness. Then practical measures are drawn on to implement that awareness into your life. I believe that therapy is a partnership between client and therapist, or couple and therapist, and that together we can bring about change and the breakthroughs required to live a new and healthier life.
