I've always been interested in understanding how other people work. Becoming a psychotherapist was a natural extension of that curiosity, a role that allows me to understand you and how the events of your life have led to you ending up in the chair in my office. One of the things I value most about my work is being able to slow down and give people a space to truly feel heard and seen, something that is very difficult to come by in today's high tech, 5G, same day delivery world.
I offer psychotherapy and counselling individuals in Melbourne. I work with both men and women who are facing a range of difficulties, from anxiety, stress and depression, to grief and self-esteem issues. My approach is integrative, meaning that I am interested in understanding you and the challenges you're facing, before then finding the therapeutic approach that will best address those challenges. During our therapy, I'll be checking in with you to ensure that we're going in the direction you wish to go in.
I am currently accepting new clients, and we can book our first session within a week. I offer a free 15 minute consult to all new clients, so why not get in touch with me today and tell me about your relationship?
Attachment Theory, Integrative, Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Trauma-Informed
My approach is to first and foremost establish trust and safety in out relationship. I recognise that being able to trust your therapist, and feel safe in their presence, is vital before any proper therapeutic work can begin. My next step is to do my best to understand not only the challenges in your life, but the various factors of your lifestyle that might be contributing to these problems, such as your sleep quality, diet, and goals for the future. As we work together on addressing these challenges, I aim to collaborate with you, which means agreeing on the ways in which we're going to work through your challenges, as well as what a positive end to our time together would look like.
I am a member of the Australian Counselling Association, and receive regular supervision to improve the therapy I am offering my clients.
I've studied psychodynamic counselling in the UK, where I also became engaged with the Enneagram, a personality typing system which helps people better understand themselves and others. Since 2018 I've been conducting typing interviews, and in 2019 I founded the Melbourne Enneagram Centre to build a community of like-minded Enneagram enthusiasts. I've recently added to this foundation by completing my Bachelor's Degree, as well as my Enneagram Facilitator training.
I have current availability and can begin seeing you within a weeks time. Sessions are available in person in West Melbourne, as well as via zoom for those unable to meet in person.
Flagstaff Station is a short walk away, and there are various trams running nearby. There is 3-hour meter parking at the front of the premise, 1-hour free parking on Milton Street, and parking available at the Queen Victoria Market.
I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation to all clients so that you can explore if I'm a good fit for you. I charge $130 per session. Sessions are 50 minutes long, and take place in person or online as per your preference.
I accept payment in cash and direct deposit.
As a psychotherapist and enneagram teacher, I'm passionate about creating an environment for you that is safe, transparent, and authentic. Being in a safe space means you're able to say anything you want without being judged. Having transparency means there aren't any smoke and mirrors regarding the therapeutic process; it's all laid on the table. And an authentic therapist is someone who will give it to you straight, not sugar coat everything. ...
