Individual and Relationship Counselling

I have worked in private practice as a psychotherapist and counsellor in Melbourne since 2000. I am a Clinical Member of the Psychotherapists and Counsellors Federation of Australia (PACFA) and work within the ethical guidelines and values of this organisation. I have more than 500 hours of professional supervision of my work with clients. With over 35 years of experience working with people to enhance their lives, I have seen first hand the rewards that can be gained through counselling.

My practice is informed by my background in psychology and social work and my interest in Jungian thought, dream work and embodied imagination, somatic expression, emotional focused therapy, shamanic practice, dance as meditation, movement therapy and mindful awareness. I love my work, and whilst sometimes there can be difficult terrain to traverse, time and time again the journey proves rich and rewarding both for my clients and myself.

I have a broad range of skills and knowledge that I draw upon when counselling, ensuring that my approach is responsive to your individual needs in that moment. I see the process of counselling as a collaborative one, whereby I bring my skills, knowledge and experience, you bring your willingness, experience and inner wisdom, and together we explore ways to address your concerns.

I work with individuals and couples in the following areas:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • relationship issues
  • grief and loss
  • trauma
  • alcohol and drug abuse
  • chronic illness
  • parenting issues

If you find that you are searching for answers, feel that your life is lacking in meaning or find that anxiety or depression may be hindering your ability to embrace life and live it to the full, then perhaps now is a good time to consider counselling.

What to Expect

An initial counseIling session is the time when we explore together, what brings you to counselling, how well we work together, what your goals are and how best to proceed into the future.

Consultation time : 1 hour for individuals

1.5 hours for couples

Please feel free to call or email me prior to booking an appointment. I am always happy to answer any questions about the counselling service that I offer.
