Counselling & Professional Supervision

 

I am an experienced Counsellor who explores a wide range of concerns with individuals, builds on their strengths, and delights in their every step toward discovering new possibilities and reclaiming personal power in their own life.

 

I offer counselling in the following areas:

  • Relationships
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Self-esteem, assertiveness and anger management
  • Trauma
  • Sexuality
  • Grief and Loss
  • Work-life balance
  • Leadership
  • Career uncertainty and self development

 

I have special skills in the following areas:

  • Life transitions
  • Stress and burnout
  • Workplace change and challenges
  • Relationships (home and work)
  • Professional Supervision

 

My counselling approach

I remain client-focused throughout my work, which is largely informed by Person-Centred Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioural Based Therapy.

 

About me

In 2007 I started working within the mental health area and in 2010 I completed my counselling training. My experience includes four years of providing family counselling with Family Works Northern, followed in 2014 by a move to tertiary counselling where I worked as a Counsellor and moved into leadership, ultimately leading the counselling service until 2021.

I have a particular skill in working with young adults, however I am also experienced at working with people from all walks of life, around a range of issues. Having been a Manager myself, I understand the challenges facing those in a leadership role and the dynamics that exist within organisations.

 

 

I provide professional supervision to:

  • Clinical professionals, from a range of disciplines
  • Non-clinical professionals, such as those in customer/client-facing roles, or in other roles where supervision could be helpful
