Sometimes life gets complicated. At these times it can help to talk with a skilled professional in a confidential, safe, impartial and non-judgemental relationship.
Doing so can help you make sense of your life and worries so you can live more fully.
People consult me for a wide range of issues including:
- Grief and loss
- Health and illness
- Existential and spiritual problems
- And many other issues.
I don’t tell you how to live your life, but rather, I help you explore what is important to you. This helps you to get more in touch with what really matters. Instead of reacting to life’s ups and downs, I help people to better understand and be themselves – in ways that help you to live better with life’s inevitable difficulties.
I try to help people to explore and learn from their experience in ways that mean something purposeful and important to them, so they can make better choices in life.
Sessions with me tend to be gentle, empathic, and collaborative whereby I tailor the way I work to your unique circumstances rather than treat everyone with a one size fits all approach. I draw from a broad range of counselling and therapy experience to assist during life’s difficulties.
GETTING IN TOUCH TO MAKE AN ENQUIRY
It is likely that we will first speak over the phone or perhaps be in touch by email. I do not have a receptionist so you do not need to worry about whether you will have to repeat your story to another person. When you ring my mobile on 0412 518 024 you speak directly to me. If I am not available please leave me a short message with your name and number. I will ring you back as soon as I am able to respond.When we do speak I am interested in understanding:
- what has happened so that you are considering counselling now,
- how you have you been getting by or coping to date,
- and what you are seeking from counselling or therapy
- whether you are contacting me for yourself, or as part of a couple,
It is also helpful for me to know how you heard of me.
In deciding whether to make an appointment, you might have some questions for me too, for example:
- about my qualifications,
- professional memberships,
- how I work,
- my fees and payment,
- and where to find the rooms
It is OK to ask me about these things and I am happy to address your questions when we speak by phone.
If you would like to make an appointment we will arrange a suitable time, and I will forward you details of the practice location to your preferred email address.
