Psychologist/ holistic counselling.

How I work...

My approach is holistic integrating body, mind and spirit in the journey towards wholeness and change.

I work with compassion to support you to discover and listen to your inner truth.
Helping you to reconnect with your body, you will be able to identify your feelings, how to express them and the meaning they hold for you in your life.

Working with each individual client's story, the intention is to reveal the unconscious material, which influences choices made. We explore your family background to understand its impact on your life and to enable you to recover your sense of self.

I specialize in couples counselling.

Through conversation and questions, we identify the belief systems which influence your interpretations of your experiences and your decision-making.

Background & Experience

I am trained as a Gestalt, Psycho dynamic and Family Therapist and have been in private practice since 1985. I have facilitated women's groups in both Melbourne and the USA.

I integrate a Gestalt, systemic, psycho dynamic, cognitive and spiritual approach and employ self-inquiry.
