My secret talent:
I have a ‘green thumb’ and enjoy all things plant related. I love being surrounded by plants, discovering what conditions best suit different plants and the satisfaction and joy that comes from gardening.
What’s it like to be in a room with me?
I focus on developing a safe, supportive and non-judgemental space which provides the opportunity for exploring uncertainty and emotional expression. I am compassionate, respectful, authentic and use humour (when appropriate) to build and strengthen the therapeutic relationship.
What’s my non-negotiable when it comes to taking care of my own mental health?
Taking time for silence and stillness, to allow space to recover and reconnect with myself and to notice what I need. Also regularly spending time moving my body and enjoying being outside.
My life motto:
It’s ok to live a life that others don’t understand – give yourself permission to be yourself.
