New Pathways Counselling and Support
Mobile 0439 802 218
Seeking support for yourself is a positive step as well as a creative undertaking which requires courage and curiosity. I am respectful to your unique process and will take the time to discover and honour this. I value an approach that supports your sense of connection to yourself and others. I work with many issues along with grief & loss, also trauma. I encourage an increased awareness of being ‘at home’ in your body and your ability to respond to others & this living world.
I see individuals, couples and groups of people who are experiencing difficulties either within or amongst themselves. I work with many issues including grief & loss, trauma using a trauma informed approach, anxiety & depression, life transitions, loss of meaning and general self development to name a few.
In a supportive, respectful and professional manner I will work together with you to help to reflect on yourself, come to a deeper understanding and make more sense of your situation. By increasing your awareness, completing unfinished business and experiencing yourself more fully, you may find yourself different - more confidence, direction, freedom and relaxation.

I work mainly as a Gestalt therapist, honoring each clients unique process. By doing this, my approach is tailored to suit the individual or couple. My objectives are to discover with the client their responses to the situation, explore their usual ways of dealing with such and from here devlop new patterns of response that are more satisfying. Throughout therapy I also foster the clients power and strength that enables them make their own fullfilling choices in the future.
I undertake supervision and ongoing professional development.
I have been facilitating meditative therapies since 1987 in the mid-north and north coast region of NSW. Along with this I've been counselling, drawing on my many years of experience as a group facilitator and community living in Australia, India and USA. In the last 10 years, I have been working in private practice as a counsellor and gestalt psychotherapist.
