My practice with adults focuses on moving towards personal empowerment, and in restoring a sense of peace and calm. Counselling helps by talking about current situations or problems, and Psychotherapy helps to raise awareness of old patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviours, to discover new, healthier and happier ways to live life. It also offers an opportunity to feel supported in gently exploring any difficult experiences, including trauma, abuse or neglect.
My practice with adolescents focuses on reducing anxiety, overwhelming feelings and thoughts, utilising a specialised skill set to support adolescent development, reduce symptoms of psychological distress, as well as building better relationships between the adolescent and parent, and in providing parental strategies.
I have completed specialised training in Trauma and Developmental Trauma with the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute, Boulder, Colorado, and am undertaking specialist training in Complex Trauma and Dissociation with Janina Fisher. I believe in the importance of improving wellbeing, and the role of mindfulness, and movement, have completed a 200hr Yoga Teacher Training, and currently undertaking 18 month Mindfulness Teacher Training in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT).
