"Can you relate to either of these statements? “I’m so over hurtful relationships. I’m starting to think I’ll be single forever” "We can’t keep fighting like this. If something doesn’t change we’re headed for a breakup” If you can relate to the pain of struggling in a relationship, you’re not alone. If you’re an individual in relationship pain, I can help you overcome your past relationship hurts, understand your blocks to intimacy, and help you create a successful long-term relationship. If you’re a couple, I can help you resolve long-standing issues and rebuild the loving, intimate and harmonious relationship you once had."

"I'm so glad you found me! Counselling and listening to others is part of who I am. As a young person I often found myself supporting people through tough times by listening with compassion and providing a caring presence. My career path has provided me many opportunities to assist men and women in a variety of settings, who were struggling to stay connected to hope, and in many instances had few supports. Often these people had developed unhelpful coping behaviours and lived chaotic life styles. I became aware of the huge impact of traumatic events, from both childhood and later in life, and how this contributed to life struggles."

"My task, as a therapist is to provide an environment that disrupts clients’ current levels of functioning, to move them toward change and renewed progression. Clients come to counselling stuck and immobilized, unable to create something new in their lives. The repetition of stuck and unsatisfactory behaviours, thoughts and feelings is what leads most clients through my door. I utilise theoretical and practical interventions, through the observation of the client’s discrepancies, mixed messages, conflict, and incongruity in the client’s statements and behaviours. "

"Therapy is a very personal experience so it’s important that you feel comfortable with your therapist and believe they’re a good fit for you. People will decide to see a psychologist for a range of different reasons... Often they’re experiencing some kind of stress, relationship difficulties, trauma or addiction… or sometimes they feel they just need someone to talk to. We start by talking about what brings you to the session. You may have clearly defined goals of what you’d like to achieve or, perhaps you’re not sure and you’re just trying to get a better understanding of yourself and your life experiences. Therapy is also about encouraging you to consider different ways of thinking, trying new strategies and learning new skills. It's ok if you feel that you’re stepping outside of your comfort zone. It’s not always easy to be in therapy, it takes a lot of courage to start, and to continue the process. "
