Novo Empower Counselling
Mobile 0410 637 225
I believe at the core of every issue is the human need for connection. My therapeutic relationship with you provides you with safe, non-judgemental, empathic and respectful support. With years of experience helping people to lead more satisfying lives, I am highly skilled in working with you to guide your journey of self-discovery. Whatever has led you to seek change; we begin where you are at and work together to explore the possibilities.
I provide individual, couples and group counselling to adults aged over 18 years. I offer individual consultations as well as phone and video/Skype counselling.
My areas of expertise include trauma; anxiety and depression; relationships (including divorce and separation, and family and parenting); conflict and communication; and grief and loss.
I have a special passion for group therapy, and have supported many clients in this way. In my current practice I support people to confidentially share their experiences of anxiety and depression in collaborative, therapeutic group environments.

I believe working with a counsellor can help you reduce stress, improve your relationships and achieve your goals. The name of my practice, Novo Empower Counselling, is inspired by the power of “Novo” – meaning “new”. My vision is to help you bring about changes in your life and discover what “new” means to you.
Working with you, I use approaches such as psychodynamic and person-centred therapy that help you understand your way of “being” in the world. I believe you are the only person who can change your state of mind. My role, and privilege, is to empower you to achieve this.
My training as a Counsellor was undertaken at the University of Western Sydney. 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.
I have qualifications in Psychology and Counselling and Psychotherapy. As well as a decade’s experience working with people living with HIV/ AIDS, mental health challenges and severe physical disabilities, I worked as a yoga and meditation instructor for many years. I am a member of the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia.
I am accredited in Dialectical Behavioural Therapy and Couples Therapy, with extensive training in the Gottman Method of Couples Therapy. This method involves a thorough assessment of couples’ interpersonal dynamics, followed by research based interventions.
