I aim to provide a comfortable space for clients to ensure they feel safe and at ease. I work from a person-centred perspective, utilising techniques from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and mindfulness.

My work is deeply influenced by existential philosophy and I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and seniors in community, private, school and international settings.
