Humanistic-Experiential Psychotherapy
& Couples Counselling

A bespoke
creative approach

The Humanistic Experiential approach enables me to integrate an array of therapeutic methods, including Expressive Arts, Emotion-Focused Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Attachment Theory, and Hypnotherapy, ensuring that your therapeutic journey is personalised and adaptable, crafted to suit your specific needs and preferences. Within this therapeutic framework, the emphasis remains firmly on you – your distinctive human experience takes precedence.

I understand that psychological challenges often arise from feeling disconnected from who we really are, leaving us unsure of how we relate to ourselves, others, and the world around us. That’s why my interventions focus on empowering you to make genuine, meaningful, and self-directed choices about how to live. Together, we’ll explore how you process your experiences, paving the way for increased self-awareness and self-understanding. My practice is GSRD (Gender, Sexual and Relationship Diversity) affirmative. I embrace diverse backgrounds and aim to understand and connect with you.

Where My Journey
and Purpose Intersect

I am no stranger when it comes to navigating life transitions. My life’s journey has taken me across continents, living and working in South Africa, Australia, Germany, and the UK. These adventures have enriched my perspective and instilled a profound appreciation for diversity and a deep curiosity about how we connect with ourselves, others, and the world.

My yearning for deeper human connections led me to transition from a career in executive search, focusing on the Investment Banking and Information Technology sectors, to becoming an Experiential Humanist Psychotherapist and Couples Counsellor.

Beyond the therapy room, photography has become my creative sanctuary. Whether I’m exploring new places, enjoying the company of others, or savouring simple moments, my camera is a faithful companion that allows me to capture and celebrate the essence of the human experience.

My experiences and personal growth fuel my dedication to assisting you on your unique path of growth and self-discovery. Thank you for taking this moment and allowing me to share a brief introduction about myself.
