ABOUT ME

     Qualifications

  • Master of Counselling Practice

  • Dip. Clinical Hypnosis

  • Registered Nurse (Critical Care: ICU)

  • PhD Systematic Theology: Mind/Body Dualisms and Spirituality (University of Aberdeen, Scotland)

 

​It is my belief that suffering is an inescapable part of life and that, while we all face life challenges, our experiences of pain and suffering are unique to us.  Having lived in a few different countries, I have an appreciation and respect for cultural differences, values and beliefs. This experience has also left me with an abiding sense of our common humanity.

 

A curiosity and interest in people has led me to explore different pathways, from university teacher to ICU nurse to counsellor. This interest led me to seek a deeper knowledge and understanding of our common quest for meaning and purpose and subsequently resulted in my gaining a PhD on mind/body dualisms and spirituality which was later published as a book.

 

My life's focus has always been on working alongside people; as a mother, teacher, nurse, and counsellor. This experience and training has  equipped me with the ability to help you navigate through your life challenges with genuine empathy and compassion. In a nutshell, I would describe therapy as a dynamic process which is the result of collaborative work between therapist and client. My specialty areas of interest are Grief, loss, trauma and relationship difficulties.
