People come to see me for many reasons, including anxiety, traumatic experiences, stress, grief, relationship difficulties and depression. In particular, I specialise in helping clients with chronic stress and anxiety in a friendly and non-judgmental way. For many, anxiety isn't just about feeling anxious - having symptoms - it's also about a pervading sense of unease about their place in the world. It can show up as an underlying sense of "doom" which never seems to go away completely. My experience is that anxiety sufferers don't feel safe, and what they most need is meaningful connection with others, including their therapist.

People come to see me when they notice they are "stuck" for various moments in life. often when transitioning into a new chapter; either transitioning from teenager to adulthood, change of relationships or employment, loss and grief, processing past traumas that resurface due to life's changes. Their commitment and readiness for tackling the challenges together with me, makes the best head start in recovery

Effective and profound therapy is safe, interpersonal, and restorative. It is a way to finally connect the dots. It reveals what has been missing, what's been kept secret, or what the unconscious mind has repressed. It allows a person to see what's been absent, to fully understand their inner self better, and to restructure their thinking around the narrative so that a paradigm shift is felt.

Hello and welcome to my site. Little did I realise how much my life would change during my journey to becoming a qualified Gestalt psychotherapist, recovering from a life-changing illness 22 years ago. It meant that I could not live as I was living anymore. From a background in the military, and being involved in business and community events to becoming a Gestalt therapist was a monumental shift in leaving the old way of life behind and being able to explore an alternative way of living my truth. I use this lived experience in my work as a therapist with people of all ages and ethnicity.

I am very privileged to work with clients who are interested in their self growth and development. Most of the time when people come to see a psychologist they are wanting to have some change in their life and they need the space to talk through their issues. I love providing a safe, confidential place for people to explore the difficulties and life experiences that have been challenging for them.

I am a 61-year-old mature woman with lived experience. I worked with people from different social and ethnic background, across three continents and was inspired to study the motivations behind human behaviours through the lens of the biopsychosocial model. As a provisional psychologist, my therapeutic work is inspired through this model to develop and understand the personal challenges and limitations that people endure. I endeavor to improve self-worth, personal strengths, and adaptability to foster long-term resilience. My strengths are empathy and compassion.

I provide a safe and non-judgmental environment for individuals and couples to address the underlying causes of a range of mental health conditions. As adults, clients may fail to cope with early childhood trauma resulting in poor coping strategies that disrupt normal daily functioning. An educational-based approach is used where clients get to know themselves better understanding below the surface triggers. A flexible approach to help clients suffering from depression, anxiety, relationship problems, post suicide support, domestic violence, social anxiety, and difficulty in forming relationships.

Life can be hard at times, and when we meet the messy moments it can feel isolating, overwhelming, and hopeless. We are human, after all. It makes sense that we may find ourselves stuck at times - stuck in our feelings, thoughts, and behaviours and it can be tough to shift things in the right direction, especially if we are doing it on our own. With honesty and compassion, therapy is a place to explore what you're navigating and create sustainable change that supports your healing and growth. I support women who are wanting to shift out of survival mode so they can feel grounded, confident, and free.

Hi, thanks for taking the time to look at my profile and see if we might connect. I specialise in LGBTQIA+, neurodiversity, and disability. Some of the issues that people bring to their sessions with me include - gender, sex and sexuality, religious trauma, parenting, relationships, family, mental health, and coping with daily life. Many of my clients are seeking a new perspective on challenges they've been managing for some time. Other times a difficult event, loss or personal crisis has occurred. My teen and young adult clients often need support with exploring identity, healthy relationships, self care and independence.

I have been working in the fields of family therapy and stress-related disorders and conditions for more than twenty-two years, since being an army chaplain both in the South African and Australian Defence Forces during times of military conflict (I served for extensive periods on the front lines of battle and experienced the horrors of traumatic incidents, death, loss, brokenness, anger and excessive aggression behind retaliation on the front line). Touched by the distress of those around me, I realised that we have to be proactive and therefore intentionally develop sustainable resilience before facing extreme distress!
