Online Therapy


I work with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, and debilitating stress. I provide support for addiction recovery, and assist with trauma processing and healing. I have experience working with adolescents and young people who are struggling with these transition years, and adults who are facing major life changes and challenges. I am a certified resilience coach – resilience building is an approach that develops skills to maximise the ability to bounce back from adverse experiences. I use a multi-modal approach to therapy that is based on collaboration with my clients to find a useful way forward. I see therapy as teamwork and there is regular evaluation of progress and approach to ensure the right fit for each individual client. Since my initial registration I have undertaken further training in the area of brain-based therapy – which is an approach that uses the most up to date findings from the field of neuroscience and applies them to therapy. My clients have found this to be a helpful way of understanding what needs to happen to shift patterns of behaviour that are not working.
