Life is wonderful but at times it can be overwhelming.Reaching out for help is a radical act of self-care.

We all have days that seem endlessly difficult and hard.
It can be better sometimes to reach out for help than try to manage stress on our own. 
It may be that life has just got that little bit tougher or taken a turn for the unexpected. 

My Therapy Approach

Whether you are seeking traditional counselling, mindfulness training or movement practices like yoga my approach will always include respectful listening, warm encouragement of your steps forward towards insight and feeling better, and non-judgement.

I bring to your session counselling and mindfulness experience developed over more than 20 years as a registered psychotherapist (QCA & PACFA), 12 years as a  teacher of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), 20 years as a qualified hatha and restorative yoga teacher (IYTA, YA) and a long term meditation practice.
