from $ 70 / session
I have many years of experience working in the field of clinical and mental health. I have a deep interest to understand and help people who have experienced trauma, self-esteem issues, grief and loss.

Specifically, I have worked in the treatment of children and adults who have been subject to various types of traumatic acute and chronic abuse. Abuse may lead to anxiety, depression, relationship and self-worth issues, for example. Traumatic events have been shown to have life-long consequences. These events often lead to poor quality of life and health-related conditions. I assist clients in developing strategies and implementing solutions to address these challenges.

Recently, I returned from 4 years of living and working in the Middle East, specifically in Muscat, Oman. I worked with people of different races, ethnic origins and faiths who, despite this diversity, were experiencing difficulties covering a range of mental health and relationship-related issues.

I am a pragmatic, empathetic professional who brings to the therapeutic environment a person-centred and solution-focused approach to psychological wellness and well-being. I use a range of psychotherapeutic tools and my underlying philosophy is one based upon a humanistic and holistic approach. I am a passionate advocate of mind-body integration.
