I support individuals and couples to navigate the unique challenges faced by those wanting to explore different relationship styles other than the socially accepted heterosexual monogamous relationship, such as Kink, BDSM, swinging, consensual nonmonogamy, or polyamory, especially those in mixed-orientation and queer relationships.
As people, we constantly evolve and can be faced with difficult challenges, often affected by family, social and cultural conditioning, religious and gender-based beliefs, roles, and biases. We might want to challenge this conditioning and these constraints, understanding this within ourselves, our relationships, and our families can be difficult. We might realise that our sexual, relationship, and gender identities and preferences may be different from societal expectations, so we struggle internally to accept who we are and are then unable to live authentically. We might need support from someone to navigate these changes.

I work with individuals, couples and groups who need support with a number of issues.
Clients often want to change their behaviour and improve their lives as well as their relationships. However, fear, trauma and past hurt can cause ambivalence. Counselling can help clients work through the why, how and what of making this change. By using a number of modalities such as Motivational Interviewing, CBT, Person Centred, Strengths Based and Gestalt therapies, clients can find their way out of the dark. 'Beyond silence, there is always Hope'.

I am kind, experienced, practical and a good listener. I work with adults only, either as individuals or couples . Most of my clients are struggling either with their emotions, with something that has happened, or with other people in their life. My goal is to give you a calm, safe space where hopefully you will walk out a little lighter, with more clarity and a plan if you need one. I am a licensed counsellor. If you have a Mental Health Plan from your GP you will need a psychologist and there will be an approx $100 gap fee payable. I am happy to work with you privately if you choose not to use your MHP.

Couples come to me often feeling that the constant arguing is wearing them down, that they are at the bottom of their partner ’s priority list, or that they feel more like roommates rather than lovers. Others complain of constant bickering, walking on eggshells around each other, or living like ships in the night. I also see couples for pre-marital counselling and specific problems such as sexual difficulties, infidelity, money, in-laws, addictions and parenting. In working together we will build insights into patterns that are no longer serving you, and develop action so we can move you from stuck to thriving again.

Feeling stuck, overwhelmed, sad, stressed or anxious? Maybe you’re having relationship issues or struggling to get through the day, like you just don't have your regular oomph. Sometimes just getting through the day can seem tough. It’s enough to make anyone feel like curling up on the couch with the dog, Netflix and avoid facing the day. I recognise how difficult and scary this can be and I am here to help.
