Healers, poets and storytellers know that working with the psyche is an art not a science. True healing, doesn’t happen rationally, but is deeply linked to the wilderness of the imagination.

Many of us are living with deep grief about the damage that is being done to the outer wilderness. It is therefore imperative that we find a way to be grounded in the wilderness within.

There are many paths into this inner wilderness. Surprisingly, they often begin right on our doorstep, with deep emotions and unbearable discomforts. The portal to this deeper realm lie in our wrestling with the state of the world, as well our personal struggles with  relationships, sex, money or health.

These emotional experiences come with their own language, flavours, sensations, stories – what we refer to as “images”. In sessions we talk through your experiences (past and present) and  “track” these images, like animals, following closely, learning their ways and allowing them to lead you home, to the imaginal field that provides the deepest nourishment for your life.

When our experiences begin to resonate with archetypal significance – a sense of something meaningful and profound – then, the deep-seated blockages and conditioning that have kept us stuck begin to dissolve. This is how we unweave the threads in which we’ve become entangled, in order to be recalibrated and rerouted from the deep psyche. Doing this consistently, with guidance, helps to open new possibilities for transforming how we face the struggles of this time.

About me

Like most people who do this work, I began by seeking out teachers who could take me where I needed to go for healing, initiation and practice.

While my academic psychology education has been invaluable, it was the experience of being guided through my own depth therapy that makes me able to offer support to others. I completed initial psychology training at Rhodes University in South Africa and then completed a master’s degree in Archetypal Psychology at the Tamboo Academy with deeply practical experience in somatic imaginal processes. I underwent a rigorous internship as an imaginal therapist and workshop facilitator and taught first and second-year classes at the academy.

Since then, I have received further certification in coaching as well as Dream Tending with Steven Aizenstat, the founder of Pacifica University.

Over the last 18 years, I’ve worked with many people looking for a way through complex emotional, situational and spiritual landscapes. Artists who cannot create. Writers who are slowly withering in their day jobs. Parents who are worrying about their children. Partners who have lost connection with each other. Singles who are burned out from dating the wrong people. And others, who feel listless, lost and perhaps struggling to make sense of events that happened long long ago. I walked with each of them, weaving threads of meaning, catching tantalising hints of purpose, and following these clues towards the well-spring of connection, inspiration and inner support they had been missing.
