I am a relationship counsellor working with individuals and couples.  I help clients to understand their own behaviour and assist them with creating and sustaining change.

“We grow because we struggle,
we learn and overcome.”
R.C. Allen



I was born and raised in South Africa and after my psychology degree I went to explore aboard.  I worked in Human Resources in the UK for ten years and in between working I enjoyed  travelling to various continents.  I love connecting with different people, cultures and places. I returned to South Africa with my Irish husband and here our family grew and my counselling began.  In 2008 I trained as a trauma counsellor and for two years counselled survivors of crime at the Rondebosch Police Station.  After that I gained valuable experience counselling at Families South Africa (FAMSA) for three years.  I have been in private practice since May 2010, focusing on adult therapy in the areas of relationships, trauma and depression.
