Hi, my name is Jimi

I help people recover from; Trauma - Childhood Trauma - Depression & Anxiety

Transform Your Life


I’m not a great fan of long words & fancy titles, i think it can be even more confusing and distressing. It’s much simpler to say that i’ve been helping people heal from Trauma, Depression & Anxiety, i’ve been doing it for over 25 years & i’m qualified and accredited to do it!

I’m a great fan of listening, understanding & communicating and most importantly, building a trusting, warm & genuine relationship that becomes the backdrop to working through what is distressing you and why.

I do this work because i absolutely believe that with the right support, people can break away from harmful habits & negative self perceptions that have imprisoned freedom of expression & undermine relationships. I know you don’t have to live with the pain of Trauma, I know you can live a life without crushing anxiety, i know you can live a life free from the dark clouds of depression. I know, because i have had that transformation in my own life, & seen that transformation in the lives of those i help.

I offer a free initial consultation so we can see how it all checks out. You’ve most probably been putting this off for ages, so don’t wait & suffer any longer. Get in touch, lets see how we can help.



I’m so glad i got in touch, i never thought therapy would be so motivating

I was really anxious when i first got in touch, but i felt instantly at ease

I thought it was going to feel really awkward, but found i was really comfortable

I’ve had four therapists in my life and Rene White has been the best by far. In the two years prior to seeing Rene, I was in and out of mental hospitals five times and jail once. Once because of extreme paranoia and four times for manic episodes. Since seeing Rene I have not been hospitalized or in jail once. It has been seven years since I have had a manic episode. I’ve had manic moments, but they have all gone away within a day, without incident. I haven’t had a severe depression in nearly five years. Prior to seeing Rene, I dealt with extreme paranoia and anxiety. The paranoia was so extreme that I packed up my car and ran all over the west coast for nearly a year and my anxiety was so extreme that I went to the emergency room at least twice for anxiety. Anxiety and paranoia no longer haunt me. Rene has taught me, when paranoid or anxious thoughts come up, to I process them and then let them go. My ability to process and let go of paranoid or anxious thought has improved over time. What used to haunt me for weeks or even months, now usually takes me all of ten minutes to process and let go. I used to have ruminating thoughts that would consume me for days, weeks and even months. Through her comtemplative approach to therapy, she taught me to explore other reasons for things, which has helped me to control my ruminating thoughts. Now of course Rene doesn’t take any credit for my healing. As she likes to say, it was all me and I did all of the hard work. But we all know that without her guidance, I would not have known what work to do. I would highly recommend seeing Rene to anyone who is dealing with debilitating anxiety, mania and/or depression. It took a long-time and a lot of hard work, but thanks to her guidance, my life has improved dramatically.
