My approach to therapy
I strive to build a therapeutic relationship with my client in order to assist with containing the personal distress and suffering that may be caused by various difficulties experienced through relationships, life stages, stressors and changes.

Having spent a number of years employed by mental health care facilities I practice from a solid base of teaching and supervision, and the additional opportunity to have worked psychotherapeutically with children has informed my essentially developmental approach to understanding the human psyche. In this respect, I work from the understanding that early life experiences colour our subsequent perceptions of ourselves and our world. To varying degrees, these perceptions may present as obstacles that prevent us from reaching our full potential.

Previously trained as an artist, and inline with Jungian psychology, I am interested in the value of imagery. Whether arising through dreams, fantasy, play or art-making, images and the creative use of imagination present a powerful way to access our inner world in order to work towards healing and wholeness. Although my principal orientation is psychoanalytic and based on the assumption that much of our conscious behaviour is influenced by factors outside of our immediate awareness, I find it useful to incorporate other treatment modalities such as Mindfulness, Attachment Theory and Cognitive Behavioural strategies, depending on the particular needs of the client. I also have a developing interest in the use of body-centered approaches such as Somatic Experiencing and Polyvagal Theory for working with trauma and emotional regulation.
