I support people to grow and learn to cope with whatever is disturbing and troubling you. I prefer to work with individuals who are ready to be honest and willing to engage in the work of discovering your greater self.
Your life is important and precious: your dreams, hopes, aspirations and sometimes just finding a way to survive. The very fact that you're reading this, shows there's a part of you that hasn't given up hope and is willing to explore to find new ways or value old ways. At points of change, we often need new skill sets, or be guided to delve more deeply into why it's so damn difficult to effect change. Some issues have been hanging around forever, while others just pop up in certain contexts. In each case, while it may seem impossible, what can change is your response to it. The new path is always just out of sight - but responds well to certain attitudes and may need to be coaxed into view. I don't pathologise, psychologise nor judge.
Dream Work, Experiential, Focusing, Meditation, Mindfulness, Person Centred, Process Oriented, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Somatic Psychotherapy, Trauma-Informed
I use and draw from a range of modalities from strength based, person-centred, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Somatic Experiencing, Focusing/Meditative Listening approaches and also Process Oriented Psychology. What works for you will evolve through the session. Together we will make space to discover the heart of what is troubling you, and search for ways through, that would honour all the different aspects of the situation. I don't diagnose, but observe and reflect, acknowledge, encourage and support where tis needed. I am patient, curious and interested in what makes you tick; what you might consider your purpose in life is, and how life is unfolding in that direction ... with more support.
I actively maintain an ongoing personal, professional development and supervision practice to ensure your utmost well being and greatest understanding. I also love Iearning! I believe the success or outcomes of our sessions are co-creative - that is, both of us contribute in an interactive way to creating new ways of being.
My life experience has been such that I relate to almost anybody. I enjoy finding connections and nurturing the little shoots that show themselves, sometimes shyly at first. I have been working in different therapeutic contexts for about 15 years. I have always maintained a private practice alongside working for organisations (tertiary and NGOs) in bereavement, crisis, corrections, disability and generally as a Counsellor in an organisation. I am shortly to begin working within an organisation specialising in relationship counselling. I grew up on farms - in Victoria and NSW and have maintained a love for anything green that grows along with ecological systems: permaculture, ecology and sustainability.
as per availability.
Currently I am only working by phone/Skype or Zoom.
Most people pay $130 per hour, but also have a sliding scale. ($110 - $150 per hour.)
Please note: I need to be quite honouring of both my time and yours.
I require payment prior to our session. This honours and saves disrupting the learnings gained from the session rather than having to switch to financial matters.

Things can change. I am filled with hope and trust in the wisdom of what unfolds, once we allow ourselves to engage with the exploration. Our next steps are waiting for us to focus our attention, that when approached carefully, will reveal what is being asked of us. “If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it's not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That's why it's your path.”
