Providing face to face and online counselling support for adults and young people.
I am a Registered Counsellor based in Eltham, Melbourne. I provide support for people who struggle with anxiety, depression, adjustment problems, grief and loss, interpersonal relationship difficulties, mental health difficulties, domestic abuse, and anger-related issues.
I trained as a registered nurse and completed a post-graduate certificate in neurological and neurosurgical nursing and held a senior position managing an acute neurosurgical unit. This intensive work has equipped me to manage crisis situations. I am cognisant of the deep impact of brain trauma, disability, and chronic illness - on both patients and their families. As a mother of three adults, I understand the often-daunting task of raising a family and the importance of effective communication - with a modicum of humour and self-belief!
I take a person-centred and holistic approach to my counselling therapy and work closely with my clients to help them recognise self-defeating patterns, overcome limitations, and gain a better understanding of themselves.
