I provide counselling & therapy sessions online for individuals, either short or long term as needed. Originally based in Hornsby / Chatswood I'm now able offer counselling & psychotherapy online to clients in NSW, ACT, VIC, & TAS. I help people with emotional, relational or psychological problems such as 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 to create a safe space to explore their issues. I listen in a non-judgemental way, with empathy, understanding, and confidentiality.
As a counsellor I help clients develop their ability to cope, resolve crises, reduce distress, problem solve, make meaning from experiences in order to 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.
I'm 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, and Attachment 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 counselling & therapy.
