About

I specialise in working with people who have experienced trauma. Many of my clients have difficulty in managing emotions and personal relationships and may have been diagnosed with complex trauma, dissociative disorders or borderline personality disorder but people also come to see me for many other reasons as well. Some of the the other concerns that I see clients for on a regular basis include Depression, Anxiety, Relationship concerns and grief and loss. Ive been around for a while and worked in a diverse range of areas including community mental health, Youth, suicide/self harm programs, sexual assault and LGBTQIA .
I am pretty laid back and I will work to help you to feel as comfortable and 'safe' as possible in our work together. As a Gestalt Trauma Therapist the relationship between us is the most important part of the therapy process and that which will be the basis on which self awareness and self acceptance of all our parts foster growth and healing.
The thought of coming to counselling can be daunting if you havnt been before. I will be lead by you in what you want from therapy and work towards keeping you emotionally safe in our sessions. If you think I might be the therapist for you, give me a call, text or email about what's happening for you at the moment and how I can help you feeling better.
