About

Jodie understands the courage it takes to seek counselling, to work through life’s difficulties, such as: crisis, significant life transitions, or trauma. Jodie believes that these challenges can be worked through relationally. Therefore she aims to create a space that is safe, and receptive to your goals and pace. She uses evidence-based approaches that facilitate both helpful skills and strategies, whilst further uncovering and attending to your core emotional and attachment needs. Jodie’s professional background has been working in human services: in aged care, disability and mental health practice for the last eight years.
Jodie’s primary therapeutic approach is Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). EFT utilises the science of adult attachment in a relational and non-pathologizing way to understand the dysfunction and health in all bonds and relationships. EFT is considered the gold standard for empirically validated intervention with couples.
Jodie gently guides you through stages and steps to understand your interaction cycles, attachment needs and underlying emotions to create more fulfilling relationships with self and others. EFT is an investment in yourself and your relationship with others.
