Has traditional ‘talk therapy’ not worked for you? You have an understanding of what your anxiety triggers are just no way of changing how you feel. Maybe you are sick and frustrated with sleeping patterns, worry, panic coming out of nowhere, exhaustion, reduced productivity at work, grumpiness, irritability, emotional outbursts, crying, anger, feelings of inadequacy and failure. You should have to put up with this! There are so many options available to you, so much so I wrote a book on it!

Are you trying to manage your personal issues and feeling stuck or overwhelmed? Or are you worried about your future direction and trying to navigate your career pathway or manage workplace challenges? I am a registered counsellor and careers practitioner who is passionate about supporting individuals who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, low self-esteem, interpersonal issues, workplace/career difficulties, life transitions and adjustment concerns.

Ingrid has a particular interest in relationship therapy and specialises in working with couples, as well as individuals facing distress. Ingrid works collaboratively with her clients to build on strengths, unlock stuck emotions and develop skills to improve overall wellbeing. Through counselling, both individuals and couples can reduce distress, enhance coping, and increase insight to strengthen their relationships. Once the trust and closeness build in the relationship, real transformation begins to occur as new patterns of relating are consolidated.
A relationship that thrives and gives you fulfilment will bring the kind of lasting happiness that enables you and your partner to grow and create deeper bonds. When an important relationship becomes strained or distressed, the pain you feel can challenge you to the core. I work with you in order to reveal the dynamics of your relationship - the patterns that you have built to protect the wounds that you have suffered. Together we will explore and uncover the hidden beliefs and unconscious drivers that are the triggers of your difficulties in relating to yourself or partner. We long to become present to ourselves, and connected.
With a Master of Professional Psychology Practice, I confidently support clients in navigating a wide spectrum of mental health issues ranging from anxiety and mood disorders to complex trauma, relationship and attachment concerns. My interest in psychology was born out of a natural curiosity of human behaviour and has evolved into a deep passion for helping people cultivate a sense of aliveness & vitality. I am voraciously curious about the human condition, and this translates to the therapy room where I am always eager to seek understanding of the human being sitting across from me: their stories, their urges, and their "why?".
