I have had the privilege and honour of working with clients for the last 15 years.
I have 2 diplomas and a psychology degree with honours but I have also lived a big life. My combination of knowledge and wisdom allows me to hold a space for my clients that is safe, gentle yet powerful. I am not afraid to challenge a client when they are stuck in a story. I will create a tender and very soft space to connect to pain and trauma and let go of it safely and completely.
My life experience and consequent healing of post trauma and anxiety, has taught me the importance of knowing that we all have very different parts of ourselves. Alongside the wounded, vulnerable aspects sit strong, grounded and very capable parts.
Healing comes from a balance of knowing when to sit in the pain and know it won't kill you (even when you think it will) and knowing when to lean into your more capable strong parts. This can take practice but it allows you to heal and integrate and become whole again.
You may be surprised to know that you are not as broken as you think you are.
I have a special interest in helping people who have experienced domestic violence (DV). I used my psychology honours thesis to research the barriers to help seeking for victims. In 2020 I was blessed to be asked to sit on the board of directors of DV Assist. This WA organisation, founded by Fleur McDonald, provides support for rural Australians experiencing DV.
I am in my early 50's and have 2 beautiful adult young men. I live by the beach and love connecting to nature. I am a student of mediumship, which deepens my connection with Spirit.
