    Quality Provision

    I am a member of the Australian Counselling Association (ACA). Registration with the ACA means I have the required professional qualifications, meet ongoing professional training requirements and have clinical supervision regularly to ensure I provide a quality service to clients and abide by the ethical guidelines of the profession.

    Background

    I hold an Honours Degree and Diploma in Person Centred Counselling from Middlesex University and the Metanoia Institute in London. Training here involved a requirement for many hours of our own therapy to develop our capacity to be with others in difficult emotional territory. From this experience I have a deep respect for the client and their ability to understand and find meaning for themselves from their own internal frame of reference when they're well supported to do the work of healing.
