Much of my work experience during the past 10 years has been working with trauma and relationship breakdowns.
I support those who are ready to explore their emotions, behavioural patterns, relationships and traumas. I’m ready to have a conversation with you, I’ll listen to you non-judgmentally and gently challenge your thoughts when you’re ready.
My accreditation’s – I hold a Bachelor of Social Science in Counselling. Registered member of PACFA (Psychotherapy & Counselling Federation of Australia). I attend professional development programs a number of times throughout the year, as well as having clinical supervision regularly.
My aim – is to help women heal from emotional pain, overcome life challenges that gets in their way, learn skills to improve their well-being, discover new coping strategies, as well as, find their strength and life purpose.
My counselling style – I find it interesting to learn and understand peoples journey’s up until ‘why’ they have booked a session to see me.
Online counselling is great if you can find a relaxed, comfortable and safe space so you can engage comfortably in the therapeutic process, which is key to relaxation. Once relaxed and boundaries are established naturally, rapport is built, we then get to work on the issue and your therapy goals.
We may go back and forth in your life but its absolutely necessary for me to know, so I can assist with your healing, so you can move forward from the issue or the trauma, become present in your current life, not going backwards (depression) and going to far forward (anxiety). It may sound like a bit of work; however, you won’t even notice once in session. It will be like chatting to a friend with professional boundaries. These boundaries can never be overstepped as it will end the therapeutic relationship immediately.
You can see me once, twice, ten times, fifty times, one hundred times, I WILL BE THERE to facilitate your thoughts, ground you, teach you coping skills, provide psycho-education where necessary, help you to see empathy for other individuals, which guarantees changed behaviours, relationship issues and more!
My promise to clients – I love my work, it’s my life purpose, it took a long time to get here, but I’M HERE. I will help and never stereotype any situation, everyone is unique, so their issues are unique to them, no judgement here, just unconditional positive regard.
I listen, reflect back my understanding of your issue, I speak the truth and challenge people when it’s safe to do so. I’m fair (there is always two sides to a coin/ story, so, there is no time to waste, you need to figure out your issues, understand why the issue is upsetting or causing you to be stuck, (why am I here) or (how could this happen to me).
People need to find compassion in themselves and forgiveness in others, so they can focus on their strengths, learn strategies to manage their emotions, have healthy relationships with boundaries, so they can find peace in this fast paced, busy world we live in.
