I work with adults and adolescents (16+). My particular areas of interest are grief and loss, feelings of loneliness, trauma, emptiness, anxiety, emigration, relationship and intimacy issues including sexuality. I welcome conversations about sexual identity, transgender experiences, compulsive sexual behaviour and any concerns you may have around your sexual expression. I have been trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy (AUT, Auckland) but I draw from an array of different modalities. I appreciate the existential tradition of thinking about death, freedom, isolation, and meaning of life.
In the therapy you and I will engage in a relationship that offers full confidentiality and safety. I believe that talking about our difficulties may help in dealing with them. Sometimes our problems feel overwhelming and prevent us from the full engagement in our work and our relationships. Sometimes our memories are stored in our body and in result we feel disengaged from it. The therapy may help you to re-engage with your life, the people around you, your work and your body.
