Become free of your pain. Get relationship & sex counselling that works based on 50 years of research. Relationship coaching for singles can help you develop happy & healthy relationships. Couples coaching can help you reconnect to the intimacy & love you once had. I have many tools to help you become connected whilst staying protected because I've worked with people from diverse backgrounds since 1981.

My greatest joy comes from helping you have happier & more successful relationships at home, at work & within your social connections. I openly discuss your expectations & goals to help you discover the best ways to deal with the challenges in your life. I help you harness your abilities & your preferred ideas of working to co-create a tailor-made treatment plan with you. Together we create a roadmap to help you steadily work towards your goals. Thirty years of meta-analytic studies show that you, the client, contribute 87% towards successful outcomes in therapy. You are hiring me to help you get where you want to go.

30 years of meta-analytic studies by Bruce Wampold https://rb.gy/4mnq4 shows that as long as a therapist provides a coherent, cogent & structured treatment which makes sense to the client, all models of therapy contribute less than 1% to the outcomes of therapy. The biggest contributor (87%) is the client & their supports outside of therapy. Next comes the therapist’s ability (4-9%) to create a working collaboration with the client & getting an agreement on their goals for therapy. The therapeutic approaches within the integrative framework I use include:
* Humanistic/ Gestalt/ Experiential
Ongoing personal & professional development are essential to keep me informed and up to date with changes in the field of therapy. I have been in practice since 1981 & since 2004 have used Feedback Informed Treatment (FIT- https://rb.gy/kiyl9) with every client & supervisee. I am in regular supervision with FIT supervisors & have begun training to be a trainer in FIT. FIT is based on over thirty years of research by Scott D Miller, Bruce Wampold, John Norcross, Michael Lambert, Daryl Chow etc
I worked as a naturopath/counsellor/crisis & group worker in a women's refuge & in Leichhardt Women's Community Health Centre from 1981-1986.
