Let's Inquire into meaning making
I am a registered Arts Therapist, Counsellor & Couples Therapist.
I have worked in the social sector for over 13 years. I am creative, calm, gentle, soft spoken, compassionate and curious. I tend to cut through the BullSh#t and tend to leave my ego at the door. I bring in curiosity rather than judgments and allow our creativity and our unconscious to speak up.
So, rather than always inquiring through words and our analytical frame of reference, I introduce other modalities as well into the mix in any one session.
I have extensive Arts Therapy and Counselling experience encompassing a range of issues including; depression, anxiety, trauma, sexual, physical and emotional abuse, neglect, eating disorders, relationship, and grief and loss counselling. I facilitated individual sessions, couples and workshops with a variety of clients with multi-complex trauma including children, adolescents and adults from different nationalities and varied socio-economics backgrounds.
Through my own experience of feeling different and being highly sensitive and artistic as a child, it has allowed me to continuously grow into myself as a nurturing, intuitive and compassionate therapist.
