I have been collecting the tools of a counsellor and bodyworker/ massage therapist for 15 years. Supporting people in navigating through questions of identity, anxiety, depression, shame based trauma, drug and alcohol dependencies, complex family systems and complex personal challenges.
I have extensive experience within the context of LGBTIQ+ challenges.
I have extensive experience working in long term disability support and residential life goal plan management. This experience gifted me with awareness of the finer subtleties and needs of people living with disabilities, positioning me well in counselling NDIS packaged clients.
Over the years I have worked in two therapeutic community rehab facilities for a period of four years in case management counselling clients through six, nine and twelve month sobriety journeys. Most recently my experience within a NSW school context as a school wellbeing advocate has placed me well for work with young people, adolescents and family units, collaborating with the principal in piloting and implementing a wellbeing culture and curriculum.
My counselling clients have often told me that they feel heard and that I help them feel comfortable in a judgement-free environment.
Some of my tools include Trauma Informed Sandplay Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy,, CBT, Process oriented group therapy/ facilitation.
Massage/ Transpersonal bodywork, Zen Thai Shiatsu/ yoga therapy, relationship therapy and conflict resolution/ non violent communication.
I do not profess to be an expert of anyones life, rather a humble servant to the years of service, listening and walking alongside people as they traverse personal and at times complex life situations, interpersonal relations and individual internal conflicts.
If you’d like to explore whether we could work together please reach out. I’d be happy to do a free 15 min chat to determine if I’m the right person for you.
