Making changes to patterns of behaviour can become easier when we learn why we behave the way we do. I support my clients to find their own best ways to overcome the hard times and celebrate the better times. I enjoy working with people who are ready to understand, grow and learn about who they are - where they've come from and where they are going. If you feel although you are ready to explore - get in touch!

I currently provide telehealth assessment for autism and ADHD in adults, with a neuro-affirming lens. I have a particular professional interest in diagnosis of autism in women, and my assessments take into consideration "camouflaging" or compensatory behaviours. I offer follow-up sessions to assist the individual to process the diagnosis (or absence of a diagnosis), and to establish relevant supports. I also practice as a therapist, but am not currently taking on new clients.

Have you ever tried to change and felt like your brain is fighting you every step of the way? Perhaps your brain has been caught in a loop of anxiety, trauma response, anger or flatlining in depression? Neuroscientists estimate that 90% of our decisions and behaviours are subconscious and that's why it's so hard to consciously change. The good news is that there is hope. The latest neuroscience shows ways to unhook our subconscious patterns from the past, behaviours and thoughts. Our brains weren't evolved to deal with the stressors of the modern world, but we can teach the brain the cues of safety to open up the path of healing.

Hi, I'm Chris, I am relationship therapist with a special interest in working with women and couples to improve their wellbeing and relationships. Being a working mother I get it! I know what it's like to feel the tension between balancing work, parenting and being a partner. After giving everything to work, children and partner we often forget about nourishing and making time for ourselves. My clients tell me that feel like they have lost a little part of themselves, are concerned about the loss of connection in their relationship, particularly children. I am passionate about helping couples reconnect and communicate again.

Perception is everything. Every event, situation and even trauma are coloured/perceived according to our emotional experiences. Although we cannot change past experiences we can change our perception and interpretation of them...and that is what leads us on the road t recovery. Imagine a vehicle: car, bike any sort of vehicle and imagine yourself turning ever so slightly the direction of its wheel, your vehicle goes in a totally different direction, the same goes for the mind...See you there...

One of the areas I specialises in is alternative trauma therapies. After working as a social worker for over 12 years I have seen so many people medicated for their mental health and then shown the door. After much research, additional study and completing her Bachelor of Psychology and Masters in Counselling, I believe and am passionate about using holistic therapies to improve people’s mental, physical and spiritual health. After becoming a fan of the American Psychiatrist, Bessel Van Der Kolk who specialised in Complex PTSD, it solidified in my mind the need for alternative therapies and options for clients.

Attachment-based Counsellors

Is attachment-based therapy the same as attachment therapy?

Attachment-based therapy may be confused with what is called “attachment therapy” (sometimes called “holding therapy”), a discredited and dangerous approach to treating children with attachment disorders, autism, or other mental health concerns. Attachment therapy—not attachment-based therapy—may involve restraining a child, forcing eye contact, and other coercive or abusive techniques. None of these practices are used in attachment-based therapy and the two modalities are in no way related.

What should I expect from attachment-based therapy?

Attachment-based therapy is based on attachment theory, which posits that children’s early relationships with their caregivers strongly influence their ability to navigate the world later in life. Thus, adults who seek attachment-based therapy should expect to deeply explore their childhood, identifying the dynamics or experiences that disrupted their attachment and the steps necessary to overcome challenges that arose as a result. Parents and children should expect to explore the possible factors that disrupted the parent-child relationship and work toward restoring trust and connection.

How long does attachment-based therapy last?

Certain forms of attachment-based therapy, especially those designed for parents and children, last for a set number of sessions; for example, Attachment and Biobehavioural Catch-Up, a specific attachment-based approach for young children who have undergone early adversity, unfolds over 10 one-hour sessions. When attachment-based therapy is practiced on adults or combined with other modalities, it may not last a specific length of time; clients may wish to ask prospective therapists how long they expect treatment to take.

Does attachment-based therapy work?

Most of the research on attachment-based therapy focuses on children and adolescents. Some of this research shows a positive effect, especially for attachment-based family therapy (ABFT). Other studies, however, have found that attachment-based therapy is no more effective than other approaches to childhood depression, anxiety, or suicidality. Less is known about the therapy’s efficacy on adult populations.
