Within a safe and accepting space for you to put your thoughts and feelings into words, psychotherapy includes learning about your current situation, history and life experiences and how that is impacting how you relate to yourself and others.
Helping you make sense of what you're experiencing, address limiting beliefs and past conditioning creates a new foundation to heal the impact of stress and trauma, to shift out of reactivity, while strengthening resilience and capacities to cope with the challenges of life.
Services include Psychotherapy, Therapy, Counselling, and Spiritual/Transpersonal Psychotherapy for individuals.

An Integrated Therapeutic Approach
There are many theories & modalities that inform my approach to psychotherapy. These roadmaps form part of the framework for new awareness, to guide you through the process of understanding your problems and for navigating growth or creating solutions.
While a toolbox of training & therapeutic techniques are of great value, the work of a therapist lies in the ability to sit with someone in their difficult, dark, lost places bearing witness to what is trying to unfold. I have come to know that theories alone are not the answer for healing. The reason is that a purely clinical and tactical approach does not encompass your humanness - the whole, unique and soulful individual that you are.
Psychotherapy is more an art, rather than a science. It's most important that you find a good fit with a therapist where you feel safe and comfortable, to trust the process, hold space for you and for whatever is arising in sessions. Like a lighthouse, a therapist holds a light to guide those who find themselves lost in the dark until such time that one finds the shore, regains their bearings and becomes their own lighthouse, sometimes for the very first time.
