About me  

We do things a little differently over here,

Traditionally therapists have shown nothing of thier truth, their humanity, their experiences. For me that creates an imbalance of power, can lead to mistrust and can unintentionally lead clients to feel inadequate or experience shame over their own messiness. 

Counsellors too are human and have their own 'stuff', often times this is what makes us so good at what we do. A big part of my purpose is in sharing my journey so that you know that I have been where you are and I practice what I preach. 

That doesn't mean I will hijack your sessions and make it all about me! I take ethics, safety and professional boundaries incredibly seriously, but I am also unafraid to do things my way to honour you and build a relationship of authenticity. So if it serves you for me to share a part of my own journey, I will. 

Separating from the father of my children 6 years ago, set me on a path of healing, self discovery and growth - one I continue to travel and evolve through - sharing with you my learnings and the transformations I have experienced along the way.

The time between then and now has been a roller coaster of highs and lows, it has meant making some big adjustments materially and emotionally, recognising and shifting old patterns of thinking and behaviour and embracing change. 

 

I have a deeper knowledge of myself and the person I want to be, learnt how to navigate separation and co parenting and developed skills that allow me to nurture healthy relationships with myself and others.

 

Understanding trauma and extending my knowledge of how early relationships shape our attachment styles has helped me to hold compassion for myself, understand what has shaped me and show up as my true authentic self.

 

Establishing my values, leaning into vulnerability, identifying my needs and communicating effectively has allowed me to cultivate meaningful relationships with family & friends and deepen my sense of connection. 

 

Recognising my worth, boosting my self-esteem and learning how to set boundaries has supported me to navigate coparenting, recognise red flags and avoid unhealthy relationships.

The person I am today is strong, independent, empowered. I am confident in my choices and communication. I  am attuned to who I am as a person. I know my worth and I would not change this experience for anything. I truly believe it was the making of me and I want the same for you too. 

When you choose to work with me you not only get a Coach who has stood in your shoes but you get more than a decades worth of Counselling knowledge, experience and skills. 

 

I am committed to helping you move forward through this transitional time in your life and coming out stronger and more empowered than ever. 

 

Whatever your relationship challenge, I am here to hold your hand and guide you on this journey.
