I have been working in creating change for corporations and individuals alike since the mid 1980’s, as a clinical hypnotherapist since 1995 and as a professional counsellor and psychotherapist since 2009. I am a level 4 member (most experienced) of the Australian Counselling Association and a clinical member of the Australian Association for Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy. I am a supervisor for other Counsellors and Hypnotherapists in clinical practice.

My counselling draws on years of clinical experience, training in evidence based therapies and the use of therapeutic techniques to deliver tangible results in the lives of my clients. I use a variety of approaches in my clinic, including: Person-Centred, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Psycho-education, Resource Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing, Brainspotting and Havening and neuroscience concepts in my practice.

I have worked with clients presenting a vast range of concerns, in a variety of diverse settings with adults, adolescents, couples and families. I like to think I am supportive, empathic and collaborative in my approach: which encourages my clients to be relaxed and at ease.

I co-create with my clients an environment to share their issues and concerns: together with respectful insight, we collaboratively develop a range of solutions. With these possible solutions, effective interventions and a results-oriented focus, I seek to empower my clients to achieve their goals, overcome limited behaviours and resolve unfinished business during times of life transition.

Complimentary 10 minute Consultation
For many people, the hardest part is taking that first step, to pick up the phone and ask for help. In doing so, you can take advantage of a complimentary 15 minute phone consultation, so we can talk through which of my wellbeingness services and programs could be most beneficial to you. I am looking forward to assisting you.

Online Consultations
We offer counselling support services for those who are unable to attend face to face sessions. We offer counselling and psychotherapy via online platforms: Skype and Zoom and we can also do sessions via mobile phone or landline.

Helpful Resources
There are some affordable free downloadable wellbeingness resources that you can access, such as relaxation audio tracks, “The Lush Forest” and “Footprints in the Sand” available HERE.

Important COVID-19 Information
I want to assure you, that when you visit my practice, your safety and the safety of the wider community is my priority. Face to face appointments at my practice are safe, as I have measures in place to protect you. A comprehensive COVID-19 Work Safe Safety Plan has been implemented, including a hygiene station, cleaning protocols and a spacious clinic setting.
Clinic consultation times have been restructured to ensure you won’t come into contact with other people and to facilitate cleaning protocols in the clinic between clients.  I am working conscientiously to support your psychological and wellbeingness needs as we progress through the coronavirus experience.

Wellbeing Directed Programs

Our wellbeing programs use a combination of approaches such as Traditional Talking Counselling and Hypnotherapy to communicate directly with the sub-conscious mind.

Traditional Talking Counselling

Also referred to as: "talking therapy” as it is a dialogue between you and the therapist, designed to create new levels of awareness and develop internal resources to resolve issues.

Trauma Informed Therapy Programs
