My approach is person-centred, I immerse myself in understanding a person's inner world and their needs, hence I do not judge and am very open-minded. I have been known to be empathetic from a very young age, this is due to my own personal experiences. I am also an emotional individual, my emotions are very informative to how I cope and function, thus these characteristics reflect on my therapeutic approach. I am a person-centred emotional focused counsellor and hypnotherapist.
I ensure any therapeutic approach or suggestions I use are evidence-based, and my practice is ethically safe, being a member of PACFA and AHA, I ensure I follow the Code of ethics and Code of conduct which reflects on the contract between myself and the client. I also ensure I get appropriate professional supervision on a regular basis in order to reflect and improve my own practice.
I completed my Masters of Counselling and Psychotherapy in 2016, after which I worked as a Telehealth counsellor with Turning Point Drug and Alcohol services. Once I became a mother I applied for a more flexible position as a EAP Telehealth Counsellor with Lifeworks. While on Mat leave I completed my Diploma of Clinical Hypnotherapy, and practiced hypnotherapy with clients over the phone. Prior to becoming a counsellor I was a Mental Health Nurse for 8yrs, worked in hospital and community setting with adults, adolescents, from various background. I can confidently say that my experience is versatile, and very specialised in working with preventative measures to support clients recover from mental health condition.
