About

Originally from Ireland, I have lived here in the United Kingdom for well over twenty years now, having previously lived in North America and the Middle East. It has been from my own life experience, living in various countries, that I am able to connect with a wide range of diverse and interesting people.

Similarly, I recognise there are times throughout our lifespan, when we all need a kind and supportive relationship, that can help us go beyond, to see ourselves truly, and understand more deeply. 

Work with me

I've experience working with people from varying backgrounds and age groups and I am equally familiar with the challenges presented with expat community living.

 

Having specialist training and experience working with childhood trauma and sexual abuse. I understand the ripple effects of these experiences. and I work supportively and sensitively, at a pace led by you, cultivating a mindful and inquisitive approach, along the way.

Although I enjoy working creatively, I have a deep appreciation for Eastern healing practices, and being inquisitive about how we come to be in the world. Being mindful, sensing the connection between mind and body, can open a path towards a deeper creative wisdom.
