After a traumatic experience, the human system of self-preservation seems to go onto permanent alert, as if the danger might return at any moment.

My temperament and work style has been fine-tuned after years of being in a therapeutic practice. I can be of service in the post-trauma -healing/growth journey through one on one therapy and group engagements.

As psychotherapist, I acknowledge the interplay (in)-between our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual realms. Commonly, mental health symptoms [eg. depressed mood, generalised anxiety, panic attacks, chronic pain or sleep disturbances] are often pathologically ‘treated’ as a stand-alone entity and disregarding the complex layers of how we make sense of our experiences. My therapeutic approach leans on the somatic-expressive-creative-experiential!!

Our adaptive response(s) are creative and make sense.

I am skilled in considering all mental health ‘presentation’(s) as a creative adaptation of our psycho-neuro-biological intelligence. The focus for adults, teens and children alike. during session(s) is to be awe-inspired by our unique super-power(s) for resourcefulness and integration.

A few examples of therapeutic focus with client(s)are listed below -

  • To strengthen emotional regulation and somatic resourcing to navigate waves of anxiety, depression and unsettle.
  • To explore creative risk-taking through expressive and somatic exploration(s).
  • To befriend imagination and somatic resourcing for trauma memory processing and sensory integration.
  • To re-establish a safe & trusting connection within to heal from abandonment, neglect, coercion and violence.
  • To safely express and complex emotions including shame, guilt, pain, betrayal, abandonment, loss and grief impact living and life force.
  • To bolster self-esteem, self-confidence and self-belief.

Let our spontaneity to emerge as a life force and guide us on this path to growth and healing.

The therapeutic spaces that is co-created [be it for individual(s) or group(s)] evokes playful curiosity, experimental attitude and seeded in a trusting relational container. If you are curious to explore further, book time now.

We are never more fully alive, more completely ourselves, or more deeply engrossed in anything than when we are playing.
