I am a friendly, relaxed, and conversational therapist who works with adolescents and adults with a range of mental health problems. I've done a bunch of things in my career but mostly use schema therapy these days because I find it gets to the heart of things most effectively. My primary focus with my clients is on building a warm, respectful, and genuine relationship through which problems can be explored and understood. From this shared understanding solutions will naturally emerge. I have particular experience helping people with personality problems, trauma, mood and anxiety disorders, addiction, and problem behaviour.
We have all been in situations that we wish were different. We want someone who listens respectfully, to support and encourage us to get through this situation stronger and to be proud of who we are. It can be reassuring to work with a professional therapist to help clarify our thoughts, who will provide tools to manage concerns and assist in putting a life plan in to action.

I take a compassionate and collaborative approach in therapy and we work very much together as a team toward your goals. I value creating a solid and safe therapeutic space where you can genuinely express yourself, and from which you can be empowered and supported to make change.

I believe that therapy is important. And I know that changing our behaviour is hard.

Therapy offers us the opportunity to change, supporting you to regain control of your life and while providing concrete strategies to help you do so.

Available ONLINE only and Australia Wide. There is no such thing as a human that doesn't need support sometimes. If it all feels too much and you're overwhelmed by your emotions, or perhaps you've gone numb long ago, it's ok to be where you're at. The question really is, where do you want to be in the future? What do you want your life to look like, and how can you get there? I am all about helping people build up their own toolkit of coping strategies so that you feel you have options to weather the storms and are in control of your own thoughts and feelings and not at their mercy.

I work with NDIS participants, with their nominated care team. I offer outreach in Melbourne's inner east, telehealth and office appointments. The people I support have complex psycho-social disabilities. They want flexible and understanding support which acknowledges their environment and circumstances, not another diagnosis or round of CBT. Most importantly, they want help with their goals that they have chosen, big or small, because they want to enjoy their lives rather than jump through hoops; Empowerment on the participant's terms.

The world we live in has the ability to cause upheaval on many different personal levels due to its complex, busy and ever-changing environments. Coping levels for individuals vary greatly from person to person, no one level is easier than the other. My counselling will provide insight into specific problems, changes in life adjustments and basically fostering wellbeing. My psychotherapy which is generally a longer-term therapy will help in this development of insight as well, however it also has the power to restructure a personality in order for 'the unconscious to come into the conscious'.
Psychological counselling focuses on emotional and psychological wellbeing and is designed to help people gain insight, clarity and perspective and find solutions using their own personal strengths. Guidestar provides a safe space for confidential psychology, counselling, and support services for adolescents and adults.
