Keep reading and I'll share a little more about what I can offer you and how you can book your free 20 minute introductory video call.
MY AREAS OF SPECIALISM AND WHAT I OFFER
Sometimes intimate relationship don't go as expected and you can lose contact with yourself or the other. Together we'll find the words to describe how you feel and what you need so you are able to maintain your healthy boundaries with those close to you.
ANXIETY & DEPRESSION
You may feel overwhelmed by life, lacking hope, purpose and meaning. This could manifest as a low level feeling of dread or despair. Perhaps you find yourself thinking the most threatening outcomes. There is hope! Together we'll unpick those stories and support you to find connection and relief from anxiety and depression.
Painful and traumatic life experiences can leave us feeling lost, hurting, afraid and frozen. You might be feeling ready to begin exploring the impact of these experiences on your life.
Together we will use cutting edge techniques from
neuroscience to bring about states of calm, safety and stability back into your life.
THE BODY, BREATH & MIND CONNECTION
You are curious about what your body has to tell you and want to tune in to those gut feelings. Together we can find ways that are safe for you to be with your body and your breath and learn what the message is, integrating this wisdom into your life.
LGBTQ+ AFFIRMATIVE SPACE
You need a safe space to explore gender, sexuality and relationship diversity. Whichever aspect of your identity you wish to explore you will be welcomed in your entirety. I spent two years working with an LGBTQ+ counselling service and have the experience to meet you where you are in a non judgemental, acceptant and honouring way.
ADDICTION AND CONNECTION
Addiction takes many forms and has different roots for everyone. The antidote, according to Gabor Mate, is connection. We'll explore what's missing in your life, what you need and co-create strategies that fit your experience and needs.
SPIRITUALITY & SELF DEVELOPMENT
You're curious about spirituality, your path and the journey of life as an ever folding mystery. You might be wanting to talk through personal revelations, integrate psychedelic experiences or make changes that put you back in the flow.
SAND TRAY AND CREATIVE METHODS
Perhaps you find talking things through challenging and want to access different parts of you that you know are pushing up to be heard. Using play & creativity in the sand tray you can drop in and explore what's really going in. I'll be there right beside you every step of the way.

YOGA NIDRA RELAXATION
Yoga Nidra is a profound practice of letting the body fall into deep rest. You will be exploring the space between waking and sleeping. This is a restorative practice that is particularly helpful for calming the nervous system, reducing anxiety and stress.
These guided relaxations are best experienced lying down in a comfortable position where you will not be disturbed. Use plenty of pillows, blankets and bolsters so that your body feels supported.
