About

Hi, I'm Shelly, an experienced Credentialed Mental Health Nurse and Psychotherapist who specialises in Perinatal, Infant & family mental health. I have worked for nearly a decade in the public mental health sector with women & families that have struggled with their mental health such as depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem during pregnancy and postpartum. From hands-on experience, I know that a healthy mind comes from our inner experiences since we cannot control anything or anyone outside of us, and this includes our children.
I feel strongly about transformational change and that real change happens from the inside out. New motherhood can be an adjustment of our inner selves, a rediscovery of our own identity, and a newfound expression of what now is. In a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental space a holistic approach will be applied to your unique healing journey.
I will include evidence-based therapeutic modalities with attachment theory at the heart of it, embedded with coaching strategies so that you will always have the tools and inner knowing to manage and adapt throughout life, so you can feel confident in yourself and in the way you choose to parent.
