Counsellor, Supervisor, Group Facilitator, Registered Mental Health Nurse
As a qualified counsellor, I specialise in therapeutic interventions and practices that best manage symptoms of mental health problems.
Since qualifying as a Counsellor in 2012, I prominently work with adults and teenagers in private practice. I graduated as a Registered Nurse in 2002 and currently work part time as a Registered Mental Health Nurse for ADHB at the adult inpatient psychiatric unit.
Most recently I expanded my practice and now am available for Supervision and Therapeutic Group facilitation and Project development work.
My counselling approach is supportive and inquisitive. My goal is to facilitate therapeutic conversations that are challenging and effective in creating change by understanding what is important to you.
I will offer you knowledge around evidence based practices and modalities, and promote the value of healthy relationships as part of the therapeutic process. My areas of interest include; life changes, trauma, behavioural problems, mood disturbances, anxiety, psychosis, relationship difficulties, self-esteem, identity and more.
