Personal growth is about becoming your best version. I provide Individual counselling for depression, anxiety, PTSD, eating disorders, postnatal depression, emotional stress and relationship problems regarding your partner (past or present), parents or children.
My therapeutic stance is trauma informed with Brain spotting (an alternative to EMDR), somatic psychotherapy, and Gestalt therapy which is an emotionally focused therapy akin to the work of Eckhart Tolle.
PARENTING & POST NATAL DEPRESSION
Raising healthy humans is hard. I am passionate about supporting others parents in their struggles. I've completed the Perinatal Psychology postnatal depression intensive training and love the concepts presented in The Conscious Parent by Dr Shefali Tsabury.
My clinical experience also spans issues related to adoption, infertility and unresolved abortion, miscarriage or stillborn grief.
Relationships and other people are hard work! Sexual issues, communication problems, and power struggles over time, money and parenting are common. PACT is cutting edge relationship therapy developed by Stan Tatkin. The psychobiological approach looks at adult attachment and arousal levels. I also find unrecognised issues such as Aspergers, ADHD, Emotional regulation issues or personality disorders can factor in the relationship difficulties.
BIOCHEMISTRY AND MOOD
You can't always manage your mood by changing your thoughts. Neurotransmitters & neuropeptides, the chemical signature of your emotions, are made from the raw nutrients in your diet. If you have an epigenetic tendency to micro nutrient imbalance then you are likely to suffer despite best intentions.
Pyrrole disorder, methylation and microbiome imbalances can all significantly affect your mind and mood. Read more about biochemical imbalances that affect your mood.
