I often say to clients:
If you always do what you’ve always done, You will always get what you’ve always got.
My first area of study was Nursing, followed by Natural Therapies and then Counselling.
Now I am an experienced counsellor (and counsellor supervisor) working with individuals and couples who want better communication and harmony in their life. I see myself as an agent of change empowering people to find better ways of dealing with issues and creating more satisfying outcomes.
I am a very positive and motivated person! I am an abundance thinker and gratitude giver who knows what goes around comes around.
Besides being a counsellor passionate about her work, I am a mother of four children, grandmother of four grandchildren and owner of two fur-children (my little dogs!). I have travelled the world but found myself through self-enquiry, self-reflection and psychological education along with all the ups and downs that life threw my way to challenge me. My husband of 42 years grew up with me and came along for the ride.
Working with expressive therapies such as art is very important to me as is talk therapy.
Over the years I have gained:
- Bachelor of Applied Social Science (Counselling).
- Diploma of Professional Counselling.
- Diploma of Multi-Addiction Counselling.
- Diploma of Clinical Hypnosis.
- Diploma of Remedial Therapies.
- Diploma of Remedial Massage.
- Cert.of Nutritional Chemistry.
- Cert.IV in Assessment & Workplace Training.
- Reiki 1 & 2.
- Counsellor Supervisor Training.
I am proud to be a full member and counsellor supervisor of the Australian Counsellors Association (ACA). It is mandatory when maintaining this status within such professional organizations to participate in many hours of professional supervision and professional development each year keeping up-to-date with therapeutic processes and the emotional healing of clients. It is also mandatory to hold professional indemnity insurance.
I am an artist in my spare time and some of my artwork can be viewed on my website Soul Works Art Studio.
If you need or want change, I am here for you and will support you all the way. It will be my privilege.
I am only a phone call away. Please call. 0415 959 267 or you can go straight to my appointment scheduler online.
