I have significant experience in supporting clients to build healthier and more positive relationships, not only with others but with themselves. I work with clients experiencing difficulties related to stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, substance use, grief, and a range of other issues. I work with children, adolescents and adults in a collaborative, trauma informed and client centred way that puts the needs of the client front and centre.
Navigating the seasons of life on your own can sometimes get tricky. As you do your best to make sense of it all that seems too much or out of control, having a listening ear as you work through it can be helpful. I believe the struggles with our inner world can get overwhelming at times, and it can be renegotiated to lead a meaningful life. A significant part of my work as a registered clinical psychologist is offering psychological exploration and support to patients in a mutual effort to understand themselves better and work through how they can relate more intimately to themselves and others.
Are you feeling worthless, a failure and exhausted second-guessing yourself? An agitated mind, can’t sleep, constantly worrying and stress at work? Those hit the hardest are often the most empathic, intuitive and spiritual souls. You'd love someone to really care but it seems too good to be true. Before plunging into resignation and resentment, how about reaching out to someone who’s trodden that path before? I’m adept in helping empathic women stand strong in difficult situations requiring a firm approach, such as a toxic workplace or controlling person. I’ll help you develop the audacity to back yourself but without the conflict.

I practice a unique blend of clinical and organisational psychology. My therapy sessions are conversational, personal, playful, and guiding. Therapy is about a client and a psychologist starting from an idea: That things could be better. Maybe by a lot, maybe just by a little; either way, something worth working for. Something that justifies facing challenges, shaking things up, taking some risks. As a therapist I don't pretend to know all the answers. My skill is to ask the right questions.
Making Space Psychology is committed to choice, safety and connection with a strong appreciation of the benefits of nature. Our clients are in their late teens through adulthood to our elders in the latter stages of life. They may have recognised psychological disorders, relationship, adjustment and self-worth concerns, existential and climate anxiety or trauma, bereavement and medical crisis. Our clients often recognise the therapeutic benefits of nature and want to harness it. They like to walk and talk or engage in an activity whilst they are undertaking therapy. Just sitting in an office talking sometimes just doesn't cut it!

I specialise in working with people who have experienced trauma. Many of my clients have difficulty in managing emotions and personal relationships and may have been diagnosed with complex trauma, dissociative disorders or borderline personality disorder but people also come to see me for many other reasons as well. Some of the the other concerns that I see clients for on a regular basis include Depression, Anxiety, Relationship concerns and grief and loss. Ive been around for a while and worked in a diverse range of areas including community mental health, Youth, suicide/self harm programs, sexual assault and LGBTQIA .
I specialise in working with women and LGBTQI+ folk who are wanting support with trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, and body image concerns. Many of my clients experience stigma and micro-aggressions on a daily basis. Some of the main reasons people choose to see me are because they struggle with feeling 'not good enough', or they have difficulty coping with overwhelming emotions, or they are struggling in a world that doesn't seem to accept them. Some of my clients feel disconnected from themselves and are wanting support to work out who they are. Most of my clients would like to feel safer.

I work with highly sensitive people who struggle with intense emotions and their aftermath. Sometimes they may feel like they are feeling everything, all at once, at other times nothing at all. They may have experienced a big trauma, or lots of little ones. My clients come to learn how to navigate the emotional highs and lows, be a better friend and partner (and find better friends and partners) and overcome their difficulties to build a life that is meaningful and rich to them. I work with adolescents and their families and adults of all ages. I also work with carers (family and friends) of people with mental health challenges.
Are you experiencing difficulties in your relationship(s)? Are you feeling confused and wanting some clarity? Are you wanting to change some behaviours, but don’t know how or where to begin? Are you feeling angry, sad, lonely or overwhelmed, finding it difficult to get through the day? Perhaps you’ve answered yes to one or some of these questions. If so, it might be time to talk to a professional Counsellor in a safe and comfortable environment where you can fully explore what’s going on for you, and begin to facilitate change, at a pace that feels right for you. I offer short and long term Counselling to Couples and Individuals.
Many people I work with suffer from various forms of anxiety, including obsessive thoughts, social anxiety, as well as issues with body image, relationships, and life transitions. Generally, those I work with are feeling “stuck” and are at a point where they long for or are desperate for relief. I help people regain a deeper connection with themselves and others and support them in moving forward to experience more peace and contentment in their life. I welcome neuro-diversity, and individuals who feel they navigate life a bit differently than others!
