Supporting Couples and Individuals

Non-judgmental, I counsel couples, individuals and families with empathy and humour.

I use use the most appropriate research-based therapy for each individual client.

If you have these issues, counselling can help:

  • Relationship and couple issues
  • Sexuality
  • Family challenges
  • Step-families
  • Life changes (new baby, marriage, separation, divorce)
  • Grief and bereavement
  • Tobacco dependence
  • Constant worrying/ stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Lack of self-esteem or self-respect

Hi, nice to meet you. A little about me:

I am a member of:

  • Australian Association of Social Workers (Accredited Mental Health)
  • Australian Association of Cognitive Behavioural Therapists
  • Society of Australian Sexology (General Member)
  • Australian Society of Hypnosis (Associate)

My working life has been primarily in government settings prior to my decision to develop my own practice in 2008.

Welcoming you into my home-office is an extension of my care for, and trust in, my clients. Your trust in me is supported by the skills and wisdom that 30 years of counselling experience provides. My practice is based on tried and tested science-based methods and I maintain currency in best-practices in therapies. However, I am also a wife, a mother, a daughter, a worker, have been divorced and re-married, and have experienced the highs and lows of relationships and relationship breakdowns…we’re in this life together.
