Psychotherapy and Counselling:
I began my initial counselling training with Lifeline in 2001. From there I moved to LaTrobe University to study the Graduate Diploma of Counselling and Services, later continuing on to complete my Masters Degree in Counselling. Along the way I did some studies in Narrative, Cognitive Behavioural, Object Relations and Existential Therapies, incorporating a wide range of theories into my framework. After working for many non-for-profit organisations as a therapist, I extended into private practice – working with people in both a short-term and longer term capacity.
Along my own journey I came into contact with relational psychotherapeutic ways of working and completed my Advanced Clinical Training in Relational Gestalt Psychotherapy.
I am interested in working with clients who experience difficulties with intimate relationships, anxious thoughts, struggles at work, uncertainty about the future, addictive behaviours, significant life changes, carer stress, traumatic events, difficulty parenting, feelings of loneliness, depression, grief, anger, frustration or isolation.
I have been a clinical member of PACFA (Psychotherapists and Counsellors Federation of Australia) for many years and have recently joined PACFAs Leadership Group for Gestalt Therapy.
