About Me

I am a registered counsellor, working with individuals and couples suffering from depression, anxiety disorders, behavioural problems, relationship difficulties, substance abuse, stress, trauma, grief, and general feelings of overwhelm due to day-to-day life or commitments. I provide a safe, open, non-judgemental environment where people can come to terms with their thoughts and emotions. Further to counselling, my professional career amalgamates strong business acumen with a passion for social science and people management. With almost 25 years of experience in the finance and banking sector, I have been able to navigate complexity and lead during uncertainty. I have extensive knowledge in senior leadership, incorporating strategy development and execution and understanding the importance of having a structured plan to get from A to B. I also have comprehensive Board experience which includes relationship management, roles and responsibilities of Board versus management, strategic planning, mediation and conflict management. I have been a member of a not-for-profit Board, further expanding my expertise in strategy execution, decision-making, planning and policy development, plus community and fundraising development. I am most fulfilled when helping people grow and I pride myself on maintaining a growth mindset, leading with integrity, and challenging the status quo. I am passionate about helping people learn, think and act strategically and collaboratively to enhance effectiveness. My formal qualifications include a Bachelor of Applied Social Science in Counselling, Bachelor of Applied Social Science in Human Resource Management, Master of Business Administration, Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, and the AICD Company Director Course.

Counselling Services


I have the privilege of witnessing profound transformations and guiding clients toward self-discovery and healing. The one-on-one dynamic fosters trust and openness, allowing clients to explore their deepest emotions and vulnerabilities. Each session is a unique journey, shaped by the individual's experiences, struggles, and aspirations. I tailor my approach, drawing from a rich tapestry of therapeutic techniques to meet my clients where they are. Through empathetic listening and nuanced understanding, I help them navigate complex emotions, trauma, and life transitions. One of the most rewarding aspects of specialising in individual counselling is the ability to delve into the root causes of my clients' challenges. Together, we unravel layers of thoughts and feelings, working towards healing and personal growth. Witnessing their progress, no matter how small, is incredibly gratifying and reinforces my belief in the power of therapy ​ In this specialised practice, I continuously refine my skills, drawing from diverse theoretical frameworks to provide comprehensive and effective support. Through individual counselling, I facilitate profound change, empowering my clients to rewrite their narratives and embrace life with newfound resilience and self-assurance.


Guiding couples through their relationship journeys, navigating the intricate webs of emotions and communication, is a deeply fulfilling experience. In this specialised field, I have the privilege of witnessing the transformation of relationships, helping partners rediscover the love and understanding that initially brought them together. Couples therapy is a delicate balance of empathy, patience, and expertise. Every couple is unique, with their own set of challenges and dynamics. I find immense satisfaction in unravelling these complexities, assisting partners in resolving conflicts, improving communication, and fostering intimacy. The moments when couples experience breakthroughs, when they reconnect on a profound level, reaffirm my belief in the power of therapy. One of the key aspects of my specialisation is creating a safe space where couples can express themselves openly and honestly. I facilitate constructive conversations, encouraging active listening and empathy. Through evidence-based techniques and personalised interventions, I empower couples to develop effective problem-solving skills and strengthen their emotional bonds.
