Her particular areas of experience and interest include working with adult relationships, the impact of traumatic life events, immigration and work-related challenges. Since the late 1990’s Désirée has integrated the principles of Imago Relationship Therapy into her work with couples or any relationship challenges including those in the work place. Désirée has considerable experience in consulting to several Global 500 companies on employee mental health matters. She is also experienced in engaging with psycho-spiritual questions and draws on shamanic informed energy and body work, all of which involve our relationship with our natural environment, often referred to as ‘eco-psychology’.
