Registered Psychotherapist

Certified Transactional Analyst – Psychotherapy

Experienced Counselor and Coach

Psychology Researcher & Lecturer

I offer over 30 years of experience and training, deep personal experiences and a sense of humour.

MY JOURNEY

I approach my work with a deep respect for every story.

Life has been interesting so far! My own journey has included ups, downs and everything in between. Curiosity drives me… often to places I wouldn’t have dreamed of going!

There are many valuable things I’ve learned along the way. Perhaps the most important thing I’ve learned is that positive change is possible… anytime.


PROFESSIONAL PATH

Taught and mentored by amazing people.

I have been trained and mentored by some fabulous teachers and I thank them for providing me with my skills in:

  • Transactional Analysis
  • Cognitive-behavioural Therapy
  • Interpersonal Neurobiology
  • Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP)
  • Trauma Release
  • Affect Regulation Therapy
  • Vipassana Meditation
  • Horticulture Therapy
  • & more...

I use a psychodynamic approach, which means that  I take into account past and present, with the aim of working toward more awareness, new understanding, improved skills,  and a healthier future.  My work is trauma-informed –  therefore very safe.

My aim is always to be friendly and to offer a comfortable & supportive therapeutic environment. A safe container – an honest and reliable relationship – is key.  As is a sense of humor at times!

Some of my work is with people who are highly sensitive, curious, creative, quirky and ‘slightly unusual’. I have particular interest and expertise in working with ADHD, giftedness, ASD and other ‘exceptionalities’.
