Counselling / Psychotherapy
I have more than ten-year professional experience as a counsellor, supporting children, adolescents and adults. I am a clinical registrant of the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia and supervise other counsellors in clinical practice. I have worked in diverse settings including mental health hospitals, schools and prison in Australia, the U.K. and Japan.
I am passionate, empathetic and committed to helping you to discover your inner strengths and foster self-growth. I provide a non-judgmental and safe space and work through challenges together.
The trusting therapeutic relationship is a key to bring a shift and change in your life. I focus on resilience and strengths in you, helping you to understand your emotions and relationships with significant others. I bring a somatic awareness, bodily sensations, postures and gestures to help you to attend more to your present moment. This is because the body often holds stress, anxiety or trauma. Releasing them and working through the body equally supports you to understand your own process.
Each session will be tailored to meet your needs and goals. My approach is informed by attachment theory, somatic psychotherapy and trauma informed care. I believe that you, your words and the body must be heard, seen and acknowledged. I look forward to supporting you to achieve your well-being, peace and a greater connection between the body and the mind.
In-person / Online
I like to see you in-person when possible and when you feel safe enough to meet me at my private practice space.
