The therapeutic relationship between us is the heart of our work together. My approach is to offer a calm, empathic and non-directive presence in which you feel respected, supported and safe. Whatever the experience, feeling or watershed moment that has prompted you to want things to change, I view this journey as one of uncovering and discovery. Together, we begin where you are now and then explore possibilities for living life more satisfyingly, by your own standards.
I offer short and longer-term counselling to individuals over 20 years old as well as Supervision to practitioners. Some key areas in which I work include: general anxiety, depression, grief and loss, issues arising from abuse, life transitions, exploration of meaning, self worth, communication styles and problems, personal boundaries and desire for change.
Existential, Meditation, Person Centred
I seek to help my clients increase their awareness of their ways of being in the world and to explore with them new possibilities that lead to greater choice. My counselling style is informed by Existential and Person Centred approaches and, where appropriate, meditation and focusing.
My training as a Counsellor was undertaken at the Australian College of Applied Psychology. Further studies followed, primarily with an Existential focus, a philosophical approach which informs my work.
I continue to undertake professional development and training each year and receive clinical supervision monthly. I also undertake my own psychotherapy to help me continue to grow personally.
My experience has been gained in private practice, in running psycho-education groups and as a counsellor in a community welfare organisation where I also train and mentor interns in the development and use of key counselling micro-skills.
Many years in communication and in my own brand-building organisation have given me insight into the power of words to both reveal and conceal us and into the different ways we communicate and understand the world and others.

In my own life I have discovered the power of 'just enough', in the tenor of The Buddha's Middle Path. Our journey will be to discover what the 'just enoughs' are for you to bring about the changes you desire in your life....
