Announcement icon I offer face to face sessions in Townsville. I also offer remote counselling to those disadvantaged by Covid as well as others not affected.


At times, we all feel lost, lack motivation and direction and feel stuck. Our minds sometimes feel foggy and can't seem to gain clarity about the future which is causing stress and overwhelm. While this is normal for us occasionally, it can steer us out of control the longer it is left untreated. We need to become self-aware of our thoughts, emotions and behaviours so that we can manage and control what is happening and take responsibility for wanting more...more control to manage our thoughts and fears...more strength and courage to be the person we want to be...happy and resilient. I have proven strategies and guidance for you.
We can manage our thoughts, feelings and behaviours by taking responsibility. I can help you establish realistic goals, implement action plans and support and encourage you to lead a more satisfying and rewarding life. I will provide a safe, non-judgmental and comfortable environment where every client is treated with respect and valued for who they are.
Why not visit my website and read the reviews that have been written by clients? If you feel that you have had enough of feeling stuck or overwhelmed and you know and feel that you are prepared to go on a journey of self discovery to feel more alive, be more motivated and have more rewarding relationships...arrange a free initial consultation with me today!
