As a chronic illness and lived experience counsellor, I know the positive impacts good mental health support can have—because I too have struggled in the past.
Sometimes, things happen in our lives that we can’t control—and it can be really difficult to cope, especially when you’re disabled or live with a mental illness. Sometimes, you just need to talk to someone who “gets it”. Someone who can help you ride the waves of life, and support you with strategies to not only cope, but thrive. I specialise in providing compassionate mental health counselling for disabled people—including those with chronic illness and chronic pain. But I support clients with a variety of concerns.

I work with clients to manage anxiety and emotional pain that often occurs with chronic illness and difficult life events.
Are you experiencing a health issue or difficult life event that is causing you stress, anxiety or emotional pain? Do you feel alone and that no-one understands what you are going through? I believe even the strongest person can be overwhelmed by life’s challenges at times. It can be reassuring to work with a professional therapist who has lived experience, understands you and can offer practical tools to help you move towards your goals and living a more fulfilling life.

ENM covers a wide range of non-traditional relationship structures that fall outside of social norms, including open-relationships, polyamory, triads, and swingers; to name a few. Working with individuals and couples, topics often include jealousy, boundary setting, trust, insecurities, attachment and sexual discovery.

Sometimes life may feel overwhelming at times, and you’re not sure what to do with these thoughts and feelings, or perhaps feeling stuck, lost, anxious, confused or hurt. Everyone struggles with something, even if they don't show it. Starting therapy can be a big step, and finding a counsellor is a really personal decision. It’s important to me that you find someone that is a ‘good fit’ for you. My primary focus is you, and my approach to counselling is warm and supportive, providing you with a safe space where you feel comfortable to share your concerns, talk through your feelings, thoughts, experiences and expectations.

***WAITLIST FULL*** I provide online/video therapy specializing in working with adult individuals experiencing complex, chronic or extreme mental health issues. Such mental health issues arise out of an entangled and sometimes unknown mix of external and internal factors. The impact of our histories and mind states reverberate through all areas of life, and we can become disconnected from the inherent state of health and wisdom within us. I aim to provide clients a space and effective tools for them to reconnect to this internal place of health and wellness, in order to thrive even in the presence of inner and outer difficulties.

It is said that we live in an ‘age of anxiety.’ It is not only you or me that experiences anxiety and depression. Mental health issues challenge most of us at some time in our lives. We need to develop resilience and resolve in the face of uncertainties, anxieties and challenges. This enables us to grow, flourish and develop practical wisdom. To face the challenges of life on our own is difficult. It is helpful to recognise that we need the support of significant others. As a psychologist, I provide a secure environment in which to turn your mental health concerns into opportunities for well-being
