I am a qualified and experienced Counselling Psychotherapist and Supervisor based in Perth. I work with adults providing both short and long term therapy. I believe that a confidential therapeutic relationship can help us to recover our sense of self-worth, self-esteem and self-respect in order to connect with our true self.
Often we don't understand why we feel the way we do, why we think the way we do and behave the way we do. Psychotherapy can provide the opportunity to explore, make sense of and work through these difficult and painful processes to grow our own awareness through understanding and insight, to help alleviate emotional, mental and physical symptoms. This can help us to live life more authentically and joyfully.
I also offer Supervision having completed the CTSD Supervision training using the 7 - eyed Model.

Over the years I have gained significant clinical experience working with a variety of presenting issues including bereavement, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and confidence, childhood sexual abuse, marriage and relationship work, self-harm, sexuality, suicidal ideation, addictions, trauma and kundalini experiences.
My background training is in Transactional Analysis (TA) which is a model for understanding human personality, relationships and communication and a systemic therapy for personal growth and personal change.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
