Hello. If you’re searching for a new and effective way of coping with stress, burnout, anxiety or complex trauma recovery, third-wave psychology might be the secret ingredient you’re looking for (mindfulness combined with traditional talk therapy). Maybe you’re suffering the horrible confusion and pain of narcissistic abuse or bullying. I can help. I have lived experience and in-depth understanding of what you’re going through. I’ve published a book, a podcast, blog and recently a short article in Australian Counselling Journal.
In addition to traditional person-centred counselling, I’m trained in ACT (Acceptance & Commitment Therapy) and other evidence-based mindfulness interventions. I have a deep personal commitment to Buddhist Psychology, and am a practitioner of Insight Meditation (Vipassana) and Yoga.
The body plays an important part in mental wellbeing and trauma recovery. I advocate the exploration of alternative therapies and a holistic approach to wellbeing and the reduction of suffering. I was a freelance actor, and I understand the unique challenges of a creative career. Please reach out if this sounds like your thing…..
