I am a psychotherapist and a writer and I’ve held a longstanding connection with storytelling and the human condition.
In my twenties my entry to university was through drama school. These three years set me on a path of discovery - how to live in this body we were given (and not in one's head) and gave me a profound understanding of non-verbal communication. Being able to understand not just my own, but how to interpret body language, facial expressions, vocal tonality in others, is a skill I have used every day of my adult life.
It informs my practice as a psychotherapist.
By my late twenties I grew fascinated with story and in the political climate of the time was drawn to document asylum seekers, detention and the repercussions on those who reached our shores hoping for a safe haven. I worked on a number of projects for film, radio and television and continue this writing and film like today. See link to creative site here.
By my mid thirties I felt strongly called psychotherapy. I spent over six years training and this continues today. I have worked in private and group therapy practice ever since. The focus on my therapy work is life transitions, trauma, reproductive therapy and anxiety and depression.
