Let's Connect (02) 4012 0931
I am a registered Clinical Counsellor, Psychotherapist, and Hypnotherapist, and I have been providing counselling for over 9 years. Have you been experiencing mental/physical discomfort? You can expect a supportive environment with a person-centered genuine depth of listening without judgement to express your concerns. Choosing a counsellor who is a good match for you is imperative to your journey of recovery and meeting your individual needs. I am dedicated and I have genuine concern for your health and wellbeing on a holistic level and approach these topics with compassion and empathy, while you shift toward health and wellbeing.
We work together to discuss any unhelpful thoughts, determine what is important to you, help you understand your beliefs and values (as these are your compass), and discover what needs you have that are not being met. Together we identify your strengths and empower you with sustainable strategies to live the life you want and achieve your desires and goals.
If your life journey is tough, and your emotions are overwhelming, you don't have to navigate it alone. I am here to listen, support, and guide you towards a brighter path. Your feelings matter and they are valid. Your journey begins with a conversation, so let's embark on it together. Reach out today for a compassionate space to heal and grow.

You do not need a mental health plan to make an appointment with me. I have adjusted my individual person's counselling fee to $120 to align with the gap you would pay when seeing a psychologist on the MHP, so that my fee is compatible, and counselling is more accessible and affordable.

I often use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and DBT in my session, to challenge unhelpful thoughts to change your feelings for the better. I will listen to your concerns, then together decide appropriate ways to help you make progress. Counselling and psychotherapy are helpful to relieve your symptoms, Hypnotherapy is helpful to address the cause, and unwanted behaviours also relieving your symptoms.
