Family Therapy

As a family therapist I’m passionate about working from a place of authenticity, vulnerability, and building a safe, nurturing space where children and families can strengthen and heal their relationships with themselves and others.

Internal Systems Family Therapy

I utlise the Internal Family Systems Therapy method which is an approach to psychotherapy that identifies and addresses multiple sub-personalities or families within each person’s mental system. These sub-personalities consist of wounded parts and painful emotions such as anger and shame, and parts that try to control and protect the person from the pain of the wounded parts. The sub-personalities are often in conflict with each other and with one’s core Self, a concept that describes the confident, compassionate, whole person that is at the core of every individual.

What to expect

I came into this work to help and inspire others. As a parent (with a highly sensitive child), I know the complexity of balancing roles, and the overwhelm and pressure this can bring.

I love working with parents to help them recognise and celebrate their strengths and increase their confidence through psycho-education and building a safe and respectful therapeutic relationship.

It’s important to me that people feel safe in counseling; as without safety people can’t process what it is that they’re coming to counseling for. I’m aware of what a daunting experience it can be coming to a strange place and not knowing what to expect.

I wanted to create a space that exuded warmth and a sense of nurture for all ages. A key element in particular in my counselling work with children is their sensory experience, so including things like different toys for play therapy and modalities such as sand, are all part of the sensory work I like to include.
