M. Couns

I provide individual counselling and psychotherapy online either short or long term as needed. Originally based in Hornsby / Chatswood I now offer online counselling and psychotherapy to clients in the comfort of their own location. I help people with emotional, relational, or psychological problems incl. anxiety, depression, self-esteem, grief and loss, anger, inner-conflict, recovering from abuse or trauma, negative patterns, or relationship issues. I work flexibly with clients creating a safe space to explore issues. I listen in a non-judgmental way, with empathy, understanding, and confidentiality.

In counselling I help clients develop their ability to cope, resolve crises, reduce distress, problem solve, make meaning from experiences and move on with life, develop their inner resources, and improve their sense of wellbeing. As a psychotherapist I help people work towards deeper change in their personality or self, resolving repetitive issues, changing entrenched patterns of behaviour, and increasing self-understanding and acceptance. Deeper change often takes longer to resolve.

Experienced and qualified with a Master of Counselling, I work flexibly with clients using a variety of therapeutic styles to suit the individual. My approach is based on Interpersonal Process Therapy, including Interpersonal-Psychodynamic, CBT, Family Systems, Attachment and Polyvagal theories. I also use Emotionally Focused Therapy and draw from therapies such as TA, Gestalt, Body Awareness, Narrative Therapy, ACT, DBT and Written /Art Expression. 

Previously I had a career as a creative director and bring creativity and flexibility to my approach.
