I have provided psychotherapy, relationship counselling and couples therapy to people who have struggled to create loving and satisfying relationships since 2003.
I am passionate about supporting my clients as they become aware of their destructive patterns and find new, more satisfying ways of relating that are based on honesty, respect, and true intimacy.
I spent six years in the foothills of the Himalayas studying Buddhist Psychology and meditation. After returning to Australia I searched for ways to blend eastern spiritual practices and western psychology, to develop a mindful attention to our inner life, and a full compassionate engagement with our world.
Whilst raising 3 children I continued my studies obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, and a Post Graduate Diploma in Individual Psychotherapy and Relationship Counselling. My interests then led me to train for 4 years as a Gestalt therapist. Following those studies, I completed a Graduate Diploma in Psychology and my registration as a Psychologist. My professional development continued with the Australian Association of Buddhist Counsellors and Psychotherapists (AABCAP) with a two year training course integrating Buddhism and psychotherapy. I have also completed level 1 and level 2 of PACT. A psychobiological approach to couples’ therapy, a fusion of neuroscience, attachment theory and arousal regulation.
My practice is informed by mindfulness and relational ways of thinking. This provides the foundation for me to support my clients to heighten awareness of unhelpful patterns, experiment with new ways of being and create more choices in how to be in relationship with others and in the world. My clients tell me this has helped them to lead more meaningful and fulfilling lives.
