Languages Spoken:

I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist in Private Practice based on the Lower North Shore of Sydney, Australia.

I have been in private practice since 1999 with a few years hiatus while living in London. Upon my return to Sydney I returned to Private Practice. I enjoyed my work as a Life and Business Coach and found it rich and rewarding. However my experience with clients made me realize that so many people find it hard to move forward and focus on their goals when they are still carrying the wounds of painful childhoods and current life experiences. This is something I could relate to from my own lengthy experiences of healing from trauma. This path ultimately led me to becoming a Counsellor and Psychotherapist as I realized I could make a profound difference in people’s lives.

I furthered my training in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I understood that my real passion lay in helping and supporting those who are struggling with emotional pain, and who are often suffering alone with very little support. The clients I work with come to see me for a broad range of issues such as anxiety, depression, bereavement and grief, relationship and intimacy issues, addictions, body image, self worth, work and health issues and so much more. Clients come for very specific short term Counselling and also long term therapy.

I also do Couples Counselling and run a number of groups, workshops and seminars. With my Coaching experience I am able to help clients move forward in achieving their goals when they are ready to do so.

My specific area of interest and speciality is helping those dealing with the long term impacts of trauma particularly the unresolved effects of childhood trauma and abuse.

I have spent a number of years training to effectively help clients go beyond the pain of past trauma and have specialized skills in methods such as EMDR and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy to specifically work with healing trauma and resourcing clients to live more fully in the present.
