Counselling in Conversation

Mobile 0418 960 861

I have over 15 years’ experience working with people on challenges that we all face in day-to-day life. By creating a safe, non-judgemental environment, I will help you explore difficulties that stress you out or get you down. I am passionate about helping people heal from anxiety, the “bully” that we have inside our own heads. In my practice I come across a huge range of different issues, but feeling anxious is so often the biggest obstacle we face in creating a good life for ourselves.

  • MODALITIES / Approach

    ACT, CBT, Narrative Therapy

    - My Narrative Therapy approach is based on connecting you with your history, hopes, values and commitments. It is so easy to lose sight of what really matters, but re-focusing on your own core values can help show a path forward to a meaningful and enjoyable life.

    - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a set of tools to make your internal life more user-friendly. By re-framing unhelpful thoughts, you can develop more control over your own actions and free yourself from behaviours that don't help you.

    - Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is a way of learning to deal with whatever life throws at us, especially difficult things. It helps build resilience and overcome avoidance and procrastination.
