Narrative Therapy Connections Sydney
Mobile 0451 519 638
I am passionate about supporting people to reclaim their lives and relationships from the effects of problems. I enjoy meeting with a diversity of people, who each bring their hopes and dreams about what is important in life. Sometimes problems limit the ideas that are available to individuals, partners and families. It is my hope that in exploring these problems together, new solutions will emerge. Often these are linked to the values, history and knowledge of the people I am meeting with.
I offer counselling and supervision in Crows Nest, in the northern suburbs of Sydney. Skype and phone appointments are also available at a reduced price for those unable to get to Sydney.
Since 2004 I have been using narrative therapy as my preferred counselling method, as it is encountered by people as being very respectful, and helpful. I have a Masters Degree in Narrative Therapy and Community Work. I also have experience with mindfulness practices.
I am a member of a professional association (PACFA), and attend regular professional training. I am committed to hearing from the people I meet with about what works best for them, and receiving feedback as to how the sessions are going. I am also engaged in regular clinical supervision and self-reflection.
I have worked with people experiencing relationship issues, parenting concerns, complex trauma, mental health concerns and drug and alcohol issues since 1999. I have also worked in disability services. I am keen to meet with adults, children, adolescents.
I am also an experienced clinical supervisor for counsellors, mental health professionals, and group workers.
Office appointments are available on Monday afternoons and evenings. Phone and Skype consultations are available on other days.
St Leonards train station is approximately 10 mins walk. Hume St Carpark and Holtermann St Carpark offer two hours free parking.
Fees are $140 for one hour. Skype or phone consultations are $120. Concessions are available for low income households and those on government payments. First session is free when you book and pay for a second session.
Payment is cash or direct deposit.

People come to see me for a variety of reasons, often in relation to the effects of stress, depression, anxiety, and other issues on their lives. I am also very interested in supporting people in steps they are taking to reclaim their lives from recent or past sexual or physical abuse. People of diverse genders and sexualities are welcomed and respected here, as are traditional, blended, rainbow and poly families. I also teach Narrative Therapy and offer clinical supervision....
