People come to therapy for all kinds of reasons. Perhaps you are experiencing a major life transition and you need some support as you navigate this journey. Or perhaps you are seeking to understand yourself better by exploring your thoughts, feelings and patterns of behaviour and discover how the experiences of your past is impacting you today.

Or perhaps you are experiencing a loss of direction in your life and want to regain your purpose and focus.

I am here for you and I will do my best to help you achieve your goals.
