Do you feel disconnected from yourself or others, confused, feeling alone and unsupported?
Growing up like this makes us feel like we are not good enough, and somehow bad, we try to please others and can’t say no. You adapted to survive, you’re ready to let those old habits go. Most of us are trapped in our heads and have difficulty accessing the wisdom in our bodies. I help you to slow down and build your own awareness and support, with me at your side.
I welcome you with an open heart, free from judgement. I help you to explore all your emotions and care for yourself, just as you are.
I am passionate in supporting folks who can’t say no, need to keep busy, have intimacy problems, depression, anxiety, or have experienced childhood sexual abuse.
I specialize in working with creative people, and empath’s (highly sensitive people who have difficulty managing their and others emotions). I welcome all under the LGBTQ umbrella, with a focus on transgender and non-binary folks. A kink and sex positive practice, offering a safe and supportive space for sex workers.
We develop an open and authentic therapeutic relationship that safely supports you, creating a reliable container for self-exploration and personal growth.
My style is relational, client driven, supportive, trauma informed and authentic, held within a safe container that we build together. I work grounded in ‘beginners mind,’ where I bring my natural openness, eagerness, and lack of preconceptions. We work collaboratively to reconnect mind, body and emotions.
We don’t always need to talk; in a session we may work with emotional expression through doodles, play doh, self exploration, bodily movement, making sounds, building support, noticing our breath, using intuition, metaphors and slowing down to notice more about what’s really happening for us !
Since 2004 I have been offering holistic hypnotherapy & counselling services. I have completed two Gestalt psychotherapy training programs, in the new and old styles.
