In mixed up times, I’ve been led to seek counselling to help gain a real sense of peace, clarity and direction. I’m now a strong advocate for seeking help, rather than going it alone. 

Drawing on an eclectic range of therapies, I provide counselling for a range of issues, with individuals of various ages, from young adults onwards.

I have a particular interest in working with people who’ve bravely faced life, while managing the impacts of trauma, attending to the myriad of ways trauma impacts the body and soul (mind, will, emotions). 

Pre-marriage education is offered, using the Prepare program. 

Located at Modbury North, sessions from 10:30am to 4:30pm, Tuesday to Friday, are available by appointment only. 

The first session is approximately 60 minutes; this session establishes your reasons for coming to counselling, what you hope to achieve and relevant history taking. 

Further counselling sessions are generally 60 minutes though longer sessions may be requested at the time of booking (for an additional fee).

On-line counselling sessions are available using Zoom. The same fee applies and pre-payment is required.

Counselling for children/youth
Working with children (17 years and younger) is recognised as a specialisation in Australia and therefore is outside the scope of my practice. I work with individuals from 18 years onwards.

Counselling sessions for individuals are $90.
Pre-marriage education is offered, using the Prepare program @ $99 per 60-90min session.
Payment by credit card, EFTPOS or EFT* arrangement is available. (*conditions apply)

A note about GP Mental Health Plans 
At this stage, these cover Psychologist appointments only; be aware these are often subject to long wait lists and you may still incur a gap fee which is comparable to counselling session rates.
