“I believe that every individual is worthy and deserving of having their developmental, social, emotional and mental health needs met, of feeling safe, and having a sense of self. I am committed to ensuring a gentle, safe and confidential space to help you recognise and meet your needs and support your journey through creative evidence-based approaches. I consider this a collaborative process where you take on an active role in both therapy and your life.”
