In-Sight Narrative Therapy
Mobile 0410 441 342
My passion as a couple and family therapist is sparked by my personal beliefs about people and their capacity to move away from problems and towards richer alternatives for themselves. I am privileged in my work to see the steps people take in the face of hard times. I am constantly amazed and inspired by the stories people share and of how they are able to draw on knowledge and resources to cope in the face of obstacles and distress.
Are you feeling stuck and defined by problems? Are issues getting in the way of your hopes for yourself? For me counselling is about understanding the influence these have on your identity. However it is also about providing the opportunity for you to stand outside the gravitational pull of the issue so that you can see what else is important, have perspective and find out what fits more for you and the life you are after. My role is to work with you to explore and enhance these directions.
Marriage and Family, Narrative Therapy, Person Centred, Solution Oriented
I specialize in Narrative Therapy, which is a collaborative and respectful way of dealing with life's challenges. The approach takes an investigative stance, with the therapist working side-by-side with you to identify and deconstruct issues.
The Narrative approach allows space to look at outside influences and context, understanding how people view these influences and how they have come to be impacted by them.

I am also a member of the APS College of Counselling Psychologists, and a Registered Supervisor of Psychologist Interns with the Psychology Board of Australia.
