When Life's Journey is difficult
Sometimes it helps to have someone walk with you

A bump in the road might be
difficult events, situations or experiences

providing support and guidance to help you get to where you want to go
With Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and the Hakomi principles, we can explore your unique journey with curiosity and respect, integrating all aspects of self — mind, emotions, body and spirit.

Qualifications & Training
My speciality is working with adults who are unhappy with where their life is at. Often this manifests as
and can be triggered by problems
in the workplace
in our relationships
in our family life
I also specialise in working with adults who have experienced traumatic events and relationships. Such events can range from accidental events where we felt overwhelming fear and threat to complex relationships where we were hurt or mistreated.
Sometimes difficulties can relate to childhood experiences. Well meaning parents can put pressure on a child. In extreme circumstances, parents or caregivers may be abusive or neglect their responsiblities.
Each child learns to cope, to survive to become the person they are today. However, sometimes the survival skills are no longer helpful or useful in everyday adult relationships and life.
Less helpful ways of coping can include withdrawing, being dependent, feeling helpless, aggression, being reactive, being distrustful, and fantasying about being rescued rather than taking action.
Other ways of coping can appear highly functional, but seem to get in the way of relationships and living a full life. For example, becoming really good at planning and taking action to the point it's hard to let go. Or being overly self-reliant can make it hard to connect in relationships.
Gently exploring these problems may help resolve feelings of anxiety, depression and trauma.
With my specialist training and experience in the area of trauma, I am committed to helping people who have had traumatic experiences by providing a safe environment with effective trauma treatment.
