Announcement icon Your health and well-being is my priority. I follow the latest directions from Qld Government and work from a COVID free, safe environment.


Having a harsh inner critic, boundary or control issues, addictions, out of control emotions or feeling numb inside are all symptoms of trauma. NOT signs of weakness or personality flaws. Trauma is caused by the mix of overwhelm and powerlessness. We didn't have to suffer childhood abuse or tragedies to experience the above symptoms in life. Removal of love, criticism, expectations of who we should be or parents who struggled with their own issues were traumatic, and lead to adaptations we needed to survive. If any of these resonate, you are not alone. I talk to people like you. And like them, you too can heal.
My trauma-sensitive counselling can help you recognise and transform those defaults that were useful responses to threats in the past but are no longer helpful. I use bottom-up, body-mind and expressive approaches that go beyond the scope of what talking therapies can achieve. I help you connect to and heal your inner wounds instead of 'fix or solve' you.
Trauma symptoms can overprotect us, their mantra is "never again that pain". It's important to grow compassion towards all aspects of ourselves though: the hyper-vigilant, the super withdrawn or the compulsive obsessive. Making sense of these sides of us starts to temper them. If you want to become calmer, more secure and engaged in life, call me now.
