A Warm Welcome
On this site you will find some information about me and the services I offer.
You will also find information about the different ways I work with people that are interested in personal growth, transformation and healing.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist and a body-oriented psychotherapist that has journeyed through various personal and professional learning over the past 16 years. Broadly, this has included the personal study and application of holistic therapeutic approaches – including those derived from Western clinical and health psychology, meditative and wisdom traditions, and Hakomi, a mindful somatic psychotherapy.
My intention is to share in and guide you on your own journey of self-discovery, transformation, and healing in whatever way is most helpful and personal to you.
I have a special interest and experience in working with:
– Trauma & post-traumatic experiences
– Childhood and early emotional wounding
– Lack of confidence and self-esteem
– Attachment distress and insecurity
– Personal growth and self-actualisation challenges
– Existential crises
– Spiritual problems – including navigating spiritual callings, integration of spiritual experiences, managing spiritual emergencies (all faiths and spiritualities)
– Integrating experiences from transpersonal and holotropic states (Jungian archetypes, shadow integration)
My therapeutic approach to working with people is informed by Eastern and Western psychological systems. The result is an integrative approach that draws on contemplative and wisdom traditions (such as Buddhism), and Western clinical psychological techniques and theory.
Psychotherapy is process whereby one can learn about themselves, and facilitate important change, transformation, and healing over time. These aspects of individual growth can sometimes be confronting, challenging, and take time to integrate properly.
I see my role as a guide to assist you on this journey of unfolding and inner-transformation.
The people I work with are searching to find greater meaning, fulfilment, and freedom in their lives. They may be interested in beginning a journey of emotional healing, or already be on a path and would like to deepen this process. They may feel stuck in past pain, fear, or with finding a sense of direction.
They experience symptoms like self-doubt, self-criticism, interpersonal anxiety, depression, or have a number of bodily complaints or symptoms, such as tension, contraction, or fast heart-rate. People I often work with may find they always get stuck in a supportive role in relationships and friendships. They may also feel like they are alone and have to hold everything together for others.

I am only offering appointments online at this stage.
