About

Linda has over ten years of clinical experience working in mental health services across the public, private and not for profit sectors. Linda’s therapeutic approach is warm, empathic and person centred. She believes that each client is the expert of their own life and provides a safe therapeutic space where she works collaboratively with clients to identify and achieve goals, bring about life enhancing positive change and improve social and emotional wellbeing. In addition to working in private practice, Linda works in a local community hospice providing specialised palliative care and bereavement counselling services.
Linda enjoys working with adults 20+ from all cultures and walks of life. She is able to work with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, grief and loss, relationship, parenting and family challenges, significant life transitions, and the difficulties associated with the diagnosis of a chronic or life limiting illness.
Linda’s work is strengths based and trauma informed. She tailors her therapeutic approach to suit the unique needs of each client, drawing from a range of evidence based therapies including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness, Self-Compassion, Interpersonal and Existential Therapies and Schema Therapy.
