I am a trained nurse with a Diploma of Counselling and a Diploma of Body Psychotherapy.
As a member of the Australian Counselling Association I also have additional qualifications in Child Youth and Family Intervention and Trauma Informed Care with high risk youth.
My own life experience, including extensive international experience of other cultures, has helped to prepare me for the challenges experienced by my clients.
I am curious and non-judgmental about how my clients experience life, and I have a passion for helping them find relief and renewed purpose. This feels fundamental to how I work.
My earlier years as a nurse gave me great experience and knowledge of the physiological functioning of the body. With that background, I have immersed myself in mental health care for the past decade.
My clinical practice as a counsellor and body psychotherapist brings the two worlds of “body and mind” together in an integrated approach to healthy and restorative change.
