Feeling heard by someone who is genuinely interested in our life is what makes us feel seen and enables us to be vulnerable. And feeling seen enables us to live authentic to who we are as unique individuals. No matter how complex we are as human beings, our needs are invariably the same. The unexpressed primary feelings we collectively hold are: Am I understood? Am I loved? Am I needed? Healing occurs when we sit with a non-anxious presence who is truly listening to our deepest self.

My approach is foremost person-centred, creating a safe place for change.
As a Provisional Member of PACFA, I continue to undertake regular professional development training, including fortnightly clinical supervision of my work, as well as my own psychotherapy to help me to continue to grow personally and professionally. I practice in accordance with the stringent ethical guidelines of my membership association.
I have worked in the higher education sector for over 4 years now as a student counsellor, advocate and advisor. I am passionate about promoting greater mental health and wellbeing at organisational and individual levels.

Becoming a therapist was a journey of homecoming for me, a recognition of what I have always been moved by; people's stories. I am here to listen to your story with you and to edit the parts that you want to change. As Carl Jung said: "Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate."

Whether it be in relationships, work or any other aspect of your life that you feel isn't flowing in the direction you'd like it to. You can think of me as an emotional translator, helping you to express your story in a non-judgmental space. I believe my most important credential is that I am a card-carrying member of the human race. ...
