I have always been passionate about helping others and fascinated by the complexities of the human mind. I received my Master's degree in 2007 and began my career, working in the psychotherapy section of an HIV/AIDS support clinic. I then went on to work in an outpatient clinic with individuals presenting with severe mental illness.
Today my focus lies on supporting and empowering people with a wide range of issues to develop self-compassion and to recognise their own inner wisdom and strength. So often, through life's less than pleasant experiences, we lose sight of our own beauty, forget that underneath everything, we are already whole. I take pleasure in guiding my clients to rediscover themselves as they learn to listen to their needs, create positive boundaries, break down those that do not serve them anymore and treat themselves with the kindness and love that they deserve. Nothing makes me happier than to see a client transform their struggles into triumphs.
I strongly believe that every person has all of the resources they need to create the life they so desire. I can attest to this from my own personal experience. For almost a decade of my life I was severely ill with both Lyme Disease and ME. I waited for many years for someone else to have the answer; to save me. In the end, when I was close to death, I finally realised that there was no cure coming; I had to be the one to save myself. Using the power of my mind alone, I regained my full health within an eight month period of time. That profound decision changed my world forever.
We all have the capability to transform our lives. When we find the key within ourselves, we can then unlock our true potential.
