Counselling/Therapy Services

If you are struggling with feeling good about yourself or if you are amidst a personal crisis, experiencing anxiety, depression or battling with an addiction or unmanageable feelings, therapy can bring you clarity and relief.

In my private practice I offer therapy to adults of all ages, couples and families and bring sixteen years of clinical experience gained in a range of specialist psychological services, mental health agencies and the corporate sector.
