My Earlier background is in business, however I changed my career direction and went into the field of Sports Science and Holistic Therapies, which eventually led me to where I am now.
I work as an Integrative Psychotherapist, which means taking into account many views of human functioning. The aim of integrative psychotherapy is to facilitate wholeness such that the quality of the person's being and functioning is improved.

Mindfulness is also a part of my practice, allowing clients to reduce stress and cultivate better living.
I offer Supervision to Counsellors, Psychotherapists and anyone in a helping profession. As my supervision qualification is in cross professional supervision, I facilitate team building and conflict resolution to organizations and groups.
