I support clients experiencing a range of adjustment and change issues affecting their lives. These include: bereavement, grief and loss; relationship conflict resolution needs; coming to terms with personal sexuality and gender; life goal planning, personal obstacle assessment, parenting issues and re-strategizing after goal frustration. Relationships, parenting, stress and particularly queer and gay male sexuality and partner conflict contexts are areas of special interest. I am a trained supervisor and use the RISE UP model and am registered with the Australian Counselling Association (ACA) College of Supervisors (COS).
I continue providing and growing effective support skills through use of a variety of favoured modalities. I am being supported with supervision from a professional consulting psychologist. My present preference is operating where possible from a person-centred, Rogerian approach and using Mandala art to provide therapeutic self-exploration.
Having lived in 4 countries and speaking three languages, I have experienced many of life's challenges and transitions, helping people through life coaching at first and now through counselling. You are invited to explore your concerns in a safe, non-judgemental environment, with a calm and empathetic professional, who employs a soft understanding approach.
