About

Hi! I'm an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker with 2 decades experience working with a variety of clients. I work with children, adolescents, families and also individuals and in particular women. I work in a holistic manner; not only do I recognise the mind body connection but also acknowledges the system in which the child or family functions, never looking at a behaviour or symptom in isolation. I support individuals to overcome challenges in their lives, from relationships to navigating life transitions.
I provide a confidential and safe counselling space tailored to the client. I use a variety of evidence based approaches and techniques that are specifically tailored to assist with working through complex emotions, skill building, learning new techniques for coping or for personal growth.
Having the courage to take the first step to receive support and enter into a therapeutic relationship to make sense of your story or situation is incredibly difficult. I hold space for the unfolding of your story, growth and clarity in a non judgemental warm manner. Please contact reception for all appointment bookings.
