A COUNSELLING PRACTICE WHERE YOU CAN FEEL COMFORTABLE TO BE YOURSELF.
Based in Toowoomba, I offer professional counselling for adults, couples, adolescents & families.
I have been a certified Counsellor since 2015 and have over 13 years experience in the community services sector in various roles. I specialise in helping people identify and achieve their personal goals by coping with the issues that are causing them distress, anxiety and a decline in their overall well-being and mental health.
My goal is to encourage you to be aware of your strengths and to help motivate and facilitate positive change and build resilience. I believe that therapy can be extremely helpful in all stages and seasons of life particularly during the transition of change. I aim to provide you support for your unique needs. I take great pride in the progress and success of my clients, and look forward to helping you.

What is your approach to counselling?
My approach to counselling is holistic. This means therapy encompasses the emotional, cognitive, social, physical, and spiritual aspects of your being as they are all connected and determine your overall wellbeing. My practice is informed by a range of well-established therapeutic modalities including; Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Trauma Informed Practices, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), Narrative Therapy, Gestalt Therapy and the Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
