If you have found me, you are likely on a healing journey and looking for support and gentle guidance. My goal as a counsellor is to provide you with a safe place to land, and an empathic, compassionate and non-judgmental space to grow and shift into a life that makes your HEART and SOUL sing. 

From a young age, I knew I wanted to help others. I have always been someone with whom people find it easy to talk. My meandering path has taken me through a variety of careers, 4 different countries, marriage, children, self-discovery, and so many emotional, spiritual, and mental challenges...and growth. I knew I had found my calling when I stepped into my first therapy session more than 25 years ago, but it took me many, many more years of life-learning before finally qualifying as a therapeutic counsellor - but here I am!

I learned countless profound truths about myself and my relationship to the world during my therapy sessions all those years ago, and two in particular have stuck with me and shaped my growth considerably.  My first deep ah-ha moment was learning (or remembering?) how our bodies, minds and souls are in no way separate; that healing involves considering ALL parts of us. This perspective spoke directly to my heart, and that was when I knew that I had found my therapist! 


The second one was that we always, always, always have a choice; that life is in fact made up of a series of choices. I learned that some choices are easier or "smaller' and others so much tougher or "bigger", or even near impossible to make, and that sometimes we need support in making and navigating our choices, as well as in adjusting to new ways of being after making them. I learned that here are no good or bad choices, just choices - and more importantly I learned that I held this magic power in my very own hands! For me this was earth-shattering information and it literally changed my life. 

I'd love to be a part of your journey as you make the choice to understand yourself and your relationships better, to grow, and to find peace through your healing of body, mind, and soul.


 I speak French fluently, but have been known to make some rather memorable and hilarious errors.

I grew up in South Africa, lived in the UK for 2yrs, France for 14yrs, and moved to Canada in 2016.

I am a proud Gen X mama to 2 teenage boys aged 15 and 19.

 Nature is my go-to for self-care - forest, ocean, desert, lake or mountain all fill my heart and soul.

 I am an impulsive buyer of books and have piles of unread must-haves next to my bed.

I don't understand the pumpkin and pumpkin spice obsession, and have a very special grimace reserved for all things pumpkin.

I am passionate about Life, the Universe and all things metaphysical and spiritual.

I'm a smiler, a loud laugher, and a really big hugger.

Some may say that I drive my family a little crazy by playing David Bowie on a loop.

I am also a Healing Arts Practitioner with more than 16 years' experience in private practice. Find out more about my Healing Arts practice here: 


My therapeutic style is compassionate and integrative; pulling together elements from appropriate theories and modalities. I favour a transpersonal or MIND-BODY-SOUL approach, and when appropriate we can combine talk therapy with various energetic, mindful, and intuitive techniques to shift energy for deeper understanding, profound healing, and greater whole-ness. I work closely with clients in order to achieve measurable results that allow them to push forward with a new, positive mindset. I am a great believer in little steps leading to big results! 

Your HEART and SOUL hold so much wisdom, and helping you connect with them and thus with your SELF on a deep level, is key. You are the expert on your life. My approach is client centered: I do not have all the answers; my role is to support you in doing the shift work and in the creation of a more meaningful and balanced life.
