My life’s journey as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, teacher and counsellor; being single, married and divorced; learning how to cope with stress, anxiety, change, sadness and loss, has given me diverse and colourful experiences over many decades.
When I work with clients, I focus on being the person that I’ve wished for during my own times of need. Someone warm, empathic, knowledgeable, focused, and really good at “seeing the big picture”. Someone to challenge me, teach me, support me, and help me get my life back moving towards something even better than I had before. I had thought I could always do this alone – not so. We are all connected and therefore find the greatest healing when we share our stories.
When I’m not working, I’m enjoying the simple life: swimming, clay sculpting, or walking on Mooloolaba beach, enjoying the company of my three beautiful adult children or my extended family and dear friends. My health and well being is very important to me and one of my guiding principles is: be close to nature, eat natural foods and don’t put anything on my skin that I can’t eat!
In my current practice I look forward to being part of a person’s development: from the young child through to the adult, who are all working hard to be the best they can be. I find it enormously rewarding to support my clients to develop their own self confidence and self awareness to gain a sense of personal freedom.
I work with individuals to create a feeling of self-empowerment where they are able to develop self acceptance and find the courage to make positive changes. Together we explore and identify how to express your feelings, worries and ideas – verbally and non-verbally.
In my practice, I don’t restrict myself to follow any one modality. I use a holistic and integrative approach specific to your needs. This allows me to understand your complete picture and to achieve the best possible result for you.

My logo is a perfect metaphor for our therapeutic journey:
Pink represents compassion, nurturing and love. It relates to unconditional love and understanding, and the giving and receiving of nurturing.
Lilies are the totem flowers of mothers, especially new ones, fertility and nurturing. They are also symbolic of unions, partnerships and long lasting relationships.
Mandalas represent wholeness “….the Self, the wholeness of the personality, which if all goes well is harmonious."— Carl Jung.
