Professional Counsellor & Mental Health Trainer
I am an accredited Counsellor/Social Worker with over 15 years experience working with adults and adolescents. My aim is to help you feel empowered, manage distressing emotions, improve your relationships with self and others, as well as increase your self worth.
With my down to earth personality, I provide a non judgmental, genuine, and empathetic approach with the aim to support individuals and couples. I help people just like you manage your anxiety and build your confidence to follow your dreams and build healthy relationships.
Tailoring evidence-based models of therapies, I will help you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your unique triggers, help to empower you to bring your true most authentic SELF to your relationships. Instead of sacrificing your truth, squashing your inner voice, or succumbing to other people’s values.
I also believe in educating people about the impact mental health has on peoples lives. With a strong belief in the importance of early intervention.
What I Specialize In...
Schema Therapy to help you understand your triggers and maladaptive coping styles
Acceptance Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness to help manage your anxiety and racing thoughts.

Tapping to help regulate strong distressing emotions
Like many people, you might find that you overthink things or become overwhelmed with the situation or you find that your mind does not STOP!
Life transitions can bring lots of different feelings and emotions, some may be very joyful while others may be very painful and challenging. Adjusting to change can be a difficult time, even positive life transitions tend to cause us Stress, Anxiety, Grief, and Sense of Loss.
Does your heart leap at the thought of more time with your partner or does it begin to sink into doubt and despair?
Are you struggling to know who you are in your relationship, and find yourself worrying all the time? Do you need help with better communication skills in your relationship?

Mental Health First Aid Training
Mental health problems are common - 1 in 4 people will experience an anxiety disorder and 1 in 6 people will experience depression at some stage of their lives. Throughout the course of a person’s life, it is highly likely that an individual will either develop a mental health problem or have close contact with someone who does.
I am passionate about mental health and empowering everyday Australians with the first aid skills to support people who may be developing a mental health problem, worsening illness or in who are in crisis.
Just like physical first aid, mental health first aid will teach how you to communicate and assist someone in need. You could be the one who makes the difference.
