With confidentiality, respect, and attentive listening I work with adults and young people accross a range of areas including but not limited to relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression, regulating emotions, and changing negative communication patterns like anger.
The human experience has been an interest of mine throughout my lifespan. Formalising my interest with a Bachelor of Counselling in 2019 confirmed to me that my passion lies in understanding people, and helping people understand themselves.
I chose to become a counsellor because of my own adverse life experiences and personal challenges, which lead me to see the importance of having a strong network of support. Being lucky enough to help others develop healthier patterns of thought and behaviour is something
I have been a fulltime professional counsellor for 9 years. Prior to counselling, I commenced working life as an apprentice & then tradesman. I am here to support, men, women and have extensive experience in working with children.
I have spent the majority of my 30-year career in the corporate world, particularly within high pressured sales environments. I offer support to help people find ways to overcome emotional stress, so that they can get back on track and achieve their goals.
Over the past 17 years I have been involved in various therapeutic roles, working with families, individuals and couples across the Brisbane Region. For the past 7 years I have been teaching and supervising at a tertiary level in the Master of Counselling.
Over my career I have worked with young people in need and spent 15 years working with people in the justice system those incarcerated and those in the community. I continue to work with people who have complex mental health needs and require support to stabilise in the community.
I have a passion for working with people and supporting them to facilitate change on their journey whatever that looks like for each individual — my approach is person centred. I have completed my Bachelor of Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology and I am currently in my final year of my Master of Counselling.
