People consult me about diverse personal, emotional and relationship problems. I work with adult individuals and couples to help them find their way through difficulties by providing emotional support, clarifying issues, developing meaning, building hope, and exploring choices. My approach is gentle, unfolding and I work at a pace that feels right for you. While I work with many differing issues my work often helps people just to be themselves amid life's difficulties.

My aim is to help you better manage life’s crises, losses and upheavals. Drawing from recognised and respected approaches to counselling, and guided by your story and experience, we find a way that works for you. I don't try to make everyone fit one method of working. Instead, we work together to understand your issues and problems and to utilise your strengths.
I aim to provide an ethical and quality service that is useful in your circumstances. I am committed to ongoing my ongoing personal and professional development through reflective practice and regular supervision. As a counselling educator I also have a strong interest in the research that informs my counselling, psychotherapy and supervision practice.
I have been in private practice since 2002 and work with a diverse range of clients. I also offer supervision and reflective practice to a wide range of health professionals including counsellors, psychotherapists, psychologists, doctors, nurses, educators, and students. I have managed Lifeline Sydney, worked with Medibank Health for Beyondblue, been Director of Sydney Campus with ACAP and am a casual teacher at a university counselling program. My research investigated therapist’s experiences of their own serious or life threatening illness. I have written book chapters and presented my work at conferences.
