Services

I offer Gestalt therapy, Art therapy and Counselling to adults in

  • Individual therapy

  • Group Therapy 

My cosy practice room is conveniently located in the CBD.

It can be a big step to seek support through therapy/counselling, especially when you feel overwhelmed or stuck in old repetitive patterns. I will meet you as a fellow human being, and offer you my wide variety of therapeutic skills and life experience. In this safe and non-judgemental space we will navigate your situation together and at your pace.

My approach is emotion-based and awareness-oriented using talking therapy, creative expression, and mindfulness. All of these modalities can be used separately or combined. Together we will explore what it is you are seeking and how we can achieve that. I may gently encourage you to check in with your thoughts, perceptions, emotions and body sensations in order to validate what is real for you now, and which belief systems you may be outgrowing. This awareness creates the space within yourself for self-compassion, clarity, and the choice to engage in a new way with yourself and others.
