My specialties are relationships, and also trauma.
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. If you have a Mental Health Plan from your GP you will need a psychologist and there will be an approx $100 gap fee payable. I am happy to work with you privately if you choose not to use your MHP.

Its too short to be spent in the emotional pain of anxiety, anger, fear and trauma that can lead to disconnection from others.
You deserve to live your best life. A life free to embrace who you are on the inside and the confidence to share your truth with others. I can promise that I am a real person who can sit with the painful experiences you bring and connect with you in an honest way that sometimes invites humour. Therapy is not always about painful experiences but human connection. I want to help you live your best life by finding solutions and making the changes for yourself or for your family. I understand that it can be daunting making the first contact. I encourage you to take that step, to reach out and see how I can help.

Are you finding it hard to communicate, to resolve differences with your partner, your kids or other family members? I help individuals, couples and families to improve connection with each other, and learn ways of working through conflict. I provide a space for you to talk through past grief or trauma that may be getting in the way of creating the relationships you long to have. When you visit - this is your space; a nurturing, non-judgemental and confidential space. Counselling can reduce the distress, whatever the outcome. If you decide to separate, counselling can equip you to do this agreeably, and to parent cooperatively.

I specialise in counselling through grief, anxiety, trauma, major life adjustments and transitions.
You may feel overwhelmed by life struggles, painful losses or relationship issues. We can work together in this space to acknowledge difficult and complex emotions and experiences, such as anger, anxiety, guilt and shame. Often people may feel alone in the midst of losses and transitions - families, friends and communities aren't always able to provide solace and support. Sometimes a loss or change may feel unbearable. Being seen and heard by another person can create powerful potential for healing and change. We can also work on long-term issues such as family dynamics and relationship patterns that sometimes add to isolation

I specialize in anxiety, trauma and addiction treatment for sensitive souls and empaths.
Those who identify as having high sensitivity/ high empathy (around 15-20% of the population) often also struggle with heightened anxiety, they may have a history of trauma or are in the throws of addictions (including emotional eating). In-fact it is not uncommon that those who are highly sensitive or who have high empathetic qualities (in attempt to deal with such strong feelings), will indulge in substances/ food/ alcohol/ other shadow comforts in an attempt to 'self-soothe' emotions. Empaths / Highly sensitive people often struggle in social situations, dislike conflict (are prone to people-pleasing) and often feel misunderstood

Feeling stressed and burnt out carrying all the emotional burden for your family? Children and young people face a complex world in 2021. Families need support and connection. It’s too common to feel lonely and tired. It takes a village to raise a child, a solid support network is everything. As a mother and partner I know it can feel like we carry all the responsibility of the family. How can we help our loved ones when we are so burnt out? I love working with women, children, teenagers and partners, to re-connect and address serious issues in the family. Too often we let problems get worse and soon they become overwhelming.

Do you feel overwhelmed or are you finding it difficult to cope? Part of being human and living life, means that there are times when we need extra support, but it isn't always easy to reach out. Other times it's hard to reach out because we've experienced things so painful and traumatic that it feels like you will never be understood. This often leaves us feeling unworthy, not good enough and unsafe and burdened with a pain that can never be shared.

I am a fully qualified, registered psychotherapist who supports both men and women with their relationship issues, trauma and grief. Many of my clients are women who have had complicated relationships with men, such as their fathers and romantic partners. They came to me seeking a male therapist who could help them to re-establish a sense of safety and trust with men. Together, we identified the patterns and themes underlying these relationships, and worked together to find better ways of navigating them. This often means being more comfortable with conflict, setting boundaries, and communicating their wants and needs.

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.
