About

Hi! I'm Meg. I use a relational, integrative approach to psychotherapy, mainly based in humanistic, experiential and somatic approaches. I am passionate about healthy communication and deepening self awareness. If you have experienced an adverse childhood and/or on going challenging interpersonal issues, I specialise in developmental trauma, complex trauma, family violence, and sexual assault. I also work with young people seeking mental health support and have experience working with ASD Level 1 & 2. I can provide nature based therapy and animal assisted therapy. My dog, Jet can be integrated into our sessions.
I will bring curiosity, authenticity, humor, and compassion to our work together. I can provide sessions to individuals, parents, and families. I feel deeply passionate about embodied trauma recovery work. I believe that the body mind connection and working with our nervous system is integral to developing self awareness and enriches our healing journey.
Therapy can be daunting so it’s really courageous that you’re here. I hope you reach out. I am client-centered and work to establish safety and connection in my work. I am currently setting up an equine therapy practice so please contact me if this may interest you. I am available for NDIS funding on self managed plans.
