At the heart of Awaken Therapy is the desire for healthy people living their best lives in a better world – a world anchored in love, harmony and compassion.

We all strive for a world where trauma doesn’t dictate our future, where everyone can achieve their full potential, and families nurture new generations to thrive. At Awaken Therapy, we believe this is not only a possibility, but a reality within our grasp.

I understand that confronting painful experiences can be challenging, but you don’t need to face them alone. From feelings of anxiety, sadness, anger and depression to deeper challenges such as unresolved traumas – I’m here to guide, support, and empower you.

Your goals, whether they’re to live more authentically, reach your potential, reduce anxiety, or heal past wounds, will find a nurturing, compassionate space here.

My approach to psychotherapy is holistic, combining the best of psychology, clinical hypnotherapy, spiritual traditions from East and West, practical experience and professional intuition.

In this post-Covid world of high stress and long waiting lists, you deserve to have access to powerful, effective tools, techniques and supportive care, in timely and affordable ways.

I offer individual and couples counselling sessions, group therapy circles, online courses, books and audio programs, and uplifting spiritual art (with Tia Rose).

Are you ready to heal and awaken to your true potential? Let's embark on this transformative journey together.

Transform your life

Are you tired of setting goals for positive change in your life, only to find yourself continually procrastinating, finding creative ways to avoid or put off starting?

Do you set yourself goals each year to improve your lifestyle, become healthier and fitter, but after a few weeks these new habits start to slip?

Do you feel deflated and disappointed, questioning why, despite knowing you're capable of so much more, you can't seem to make changes stick?

You're not alone in this struggle.

The path to transformation has many obstacles, but with the right guidance, it's entirely possible to overcome them.

Filled with clear explanations and easy to use tools and techniques, this course will help you take charge of your change process and create the life you want.
