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.

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!
