People living with trauma or autism typically show a cluster of symptoms: general anxiety, social anxiety, poor anger management, emotional dysregulation, relationship challenges, avoidance, poor sleep and substance abuse among others.
Many people sometimes struggle to understand their emotions and behaviour - maybe they get angry too easily, or become upset for no apparent reason. Other people are often well aware of why they need some mental health support, due to historical and / or current problems. I always ask clients: "What do you want to be different in your life when our work is done?" The client's answer may be specific or vague, surprising or long-known to them. Either way, I can help you answer those and many other questions - but only if you truly want to overcome the mental health challenges that stop you from behaving like the person you want to be.

Workers | Autism | Older Adults Do you feel like you’re stuck but you don’t know where to start to move? You may know what to do but getting motivated or feeling hopeful is really hard. Feeling worried, depressed or stressed makes it so much harder to believe in, and work towards, a better future. And then the way you're feeling makes eating, sleeping and concentrating hard too. Issues: Developmental differences, big feelings and tricky behaviour. Having a hard time at work (or you'd like to up-skill your emotional confidence). Getting older and dealing with difficult life transitions and other emotional issues. 0456 033 200

Although my specialty is working with people with Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis, I also work extensively with clients who have a GP referral / Mental Health Care Plan or NDIS Plan - providing psychotherapy and treatment to clients wanting to deal with various issues.
You may be struggling with anxiety and/or depression. You may be experiencing a number of difficulties which require a psychological evaluation to find clarity; perhaps a diagnosis and recommendations for strategies to deal with your problems. Or you simply need a listening ear.

Sophie (she/her) believes there is a need for more therapists who fuse intersectionality and social justice into their work.

She invites individuals of all ages into a safe, warm and non-judgemental space to explore these issues.

I often meet with individuals who are interested in exploring facets of their lives untouched by previous therapeutic endeavors. I am engaged with existential literature and eastern thought and religion, specifically that of Zen Buddhist practice, in particular their application to therapy.

Sometimes, things happen in our lives that we can’t control—and it can be really difficult to cope, especially when you’re disabled or live with a mental illness. Sometimes, you just need to talk to someone who “gets it”. Someone who can help you ride the waves of life, and support you with strategies to not only cope, but thrive. I specialise in providing compassionate mental health counselling for disabled people—including those with chronic illness and chronic pain. But I support clients with a variety of concerns.
