About Me

My approach to counselling is the culmination of more than 23 years of work as a practicing counsellor, a PhD in Education, a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology and many, many teachers and books that have taught me how to connect with people and help them to reach their highest potential.

In short, I am passionate about this neuropsychological approach to counselling, which incorporates movement, mindful awareness and critical reflection to enhance pre-teen, teen and family wellbeing. Through the counselling process, we explore the body’s biological response to emotional triggers and then together, retrain the brain in order to break old habits and put you in control of your responses to the plethora of triggers that bombard us daily. And the best part about the approach? It doesn’t require lengthy explorations of the past; it focuses on the present, and the brain responds.
