Life can be challenging at times. When we are faced with challenges we may feel alone, 'stuck', confused or feel that our well-being is being compromised. I work with children, adolescents and adults struggling with stress, anxiety, depression, grief , loss or trauma, or are experiencing domestic violence. At the same juncture, you may want some help overcoming anxiety when faced with a job interview or an exam. By working within the therapy framework, clients learn to understand themselves better and see what is needed to become empowered in their own lives.

I am kind, experienced, practical and a good listener. I work with adults only, either as individuals or couples. Most of my clients are struggling either with their emotions, with something that has happened, or with other people in their life. My goal is to give you a calm, safe space where hopefully you will walk out a little lighter, with more clarity, and a plan if you need one. I am a licensed counsellor rather than a psychologist. If you have a Mental Health Plan from your GP you will need a psychologist and there will be a $65-$100 gap fee payable. I am happy to work with you privately if you choose not to use your MHP.

My clients often are looking for ways to better handle the challenges of daily living. They may be feeling these challenges are insurmountable or that they are fundamentally inadequate to be able to cope. They might not feel that they have a good understanding of who they truly are, what it is they want out of life, or what they have to offer others. They might also struggle to draw on the resources around them and make the most of their personal relationships. They may struggle to find the voice inside to reassure them that, as hard as things can feel, it will all be okay.

I help couples and individuals re-discover their relationships and build stronger connections that bring joy and fulfilment.

Few sail through life without encountering obstacles of one sort or another. For the most part we adjust to challenges or emotional upset using our own internal healing systems. Occasionally though, we just can't find a way through the pain and can't understand what went wrong. At these times it is really helpful to talk with someone who is trained to notice the emotions behind your words, and it is by noticing these emotions solutions to your troubles can be found.

Do you wonder whether your goals and aspirations have been influenced by society? Perhaps if you were truly living for YOU, your goals would look quite different. Anxiety can dominate our lives until we start uncovering what we truly want out of life. Radically accepting yourself - and understanding your true desires and values - can set you on a more meaningful and fulfilling path. Looking at our issues in a Holistic way allows us to understand ourselves better, which fosters self-compassion.

Online Counsellors
Online counselling is a good solution for people who do not have access to well-qualified clinical professionals in their area or who live remotely or abroad. We also refer to it as Teletherapy, online therapy or skype therapy: in short, it's simply conducting a clinical therapy session using a video or phone as the means of communicating.

It's an excellent solution for those who are immobile or find it more convenient to conduct therapy in the privacy of their own home. Or are agoraphobic (fearful of leaving their home), but still want counselling.

If you're looking for online counselling in Victoria or for a Victoria online therapist these professionals provide online therapy, skype therapy and video treatment.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?

Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Victoria are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
