H o w   I   W o r k

 Having a foundational training in Gestalt Therapy

provides a solid underpinning to my work.

My other training in Ericksonian Hypnosis, Emotional Freedom TechniquE (tapping),

Group Work/Circle Way, Reiki & Shamanic Gestalt Therapy Training

expands how I can be with my clients in a unique, unconventional 

and flexible way.

The people who are drawn to working with me are often open individuals

who themselves have a

yearning to explore beyond the confines of traditional 'talk-therapy'.

They are ready to allow their unfolding and explore newness.

I work relationally which means that through the use of

Awareness, Dialogue & Support in the Here and Now,

it is possible to break out of old ways of being

and create new opportunities for growth and connection.

I have been described as 'solid, intuitive, grounded, direct and challenging'.

As well as 'gentle, compassionate, insightful and safe'.

supportive, aware, ethical with clear boundaries. 

I welcome your call and after a brief discussion I will be able to tell you if I feel I am the best fit for you. I am always open to recommending other skilled therapists

if I believe you would be better served through working with another. 

I am committed to working with people who are committed to their process.


C i r c l e   K e e p e r

When called to, I host local Women's Circles that are a closed Circle for 4 weeks

covering many deep and explorative topics.

These Circles provide a safe place for women to relate to each other and themselves

with the support of each other and myself. 

We dive deep with open heartedness, curiosity and response-ability.

Contact me at Wild Circle on Facebook for more details.
