I have worked in the community services sector for over 20 years, the last 15 in public mental health. I am an AASW Accredited Mental Health Social Worker and Family Therapist. I have been in private practice as a counselor since 2006.

Approaches to Counselling

My approach to counseling is based on two major therapies, Solution Focused and Narrative. These ways of working are respectful and transparent, are oriented towards the future and call on existing strengths and skills to help you resolve problems.
My aim in the counseling process is to seek out, and create through conversations, alternative stories that will assist you to break from the influence of the problems you are facing and assist you in living the life you want.
