I am a very capable and committed counsellor, and passionate about supporting clients to make a difference in their life through empowerment, reflection and understanding. Each person is unique and requires an individual approach in meeting his or her specific needs. You will feel connected, safe and heard in sessions with me, working collaboratively in a positive and uplifting environment. I am deeply committed to helping you overcome immediate concerns and skilled at using various therapies and techniques in a client-centred approach to provide you with the tools to grow and work towards living life to the fullest.
I tailor my approach using evidence based counselling therapies and techniques that includes: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Person-Centred, Solution-Focused, Mindfulness and Strengths-based therapeutic approaches. I provide support to individual adults, families and couples. Also, facilitate an anger management course with a court approved certificate
I have extensive professional as well as life experience and in addition to my private practice, have worked for both government and not-for-profit organisations. My genuineness and empathy will encourage you to focus on your abilities and grow as a person to work towards your goals with guidance. Office locations: Glen Waverley and Lynbrook.
