Courageous Life Changes

I am open to supporting any one who genuinely wants to work towards creating new possibilities in some area of their life. In a totally non-judgemental, confidential and supportive atmosphere, I assist people to recognise their strengths and skills, looking at how these can be implemented for creating change, reach goals and ultimately enjoy a more fulfilling future.

My therapeutic approach is Solution Oriented which has come from the work of Milton Erickson. I also incorporate techniques I have been trained in which are in addition to my training, such as BE SET FREE FAST. I work with what the client brings in and with a thorough assessment offer what I assess will best work for the client in consultation with them.
I undertake personal & professional development as well as clinical supervision both individually and in a group.

Coach, Solution Oriented Counsellor
I have worked in the area of Mental Health for more years than I would care to admit! Starting originally as a Psychiatric Nurse which I have continued with in Nursing Bank style over latter years. I built and ran a busy Counselling practice in Ballarat called Skewes Therapy Conultancy for 7 years then moved to Northern NSW for 3 years and created Courageous Life Changes which was ticking along nicely when my first grandchild arrived in Victoria, so back to Victoria I came and starting again!...
