About Me

I have always valued building strong connections with others, and being able to provide a listening ear. After finishing high school, I chose to pursue an Advanced Diploma in Counselling through the Australian Institute of Family Counselling. I have a strong passion for creating a holistic approach to mental health, and in my spare time I continuously work on furthering my knowledge through research and study. For me, a holistic approach means having a healthy diet, exercising every day, living mindfully and maintaining healthy and connected relationships. After finishing my counselling course, I chose to work in Disability Support work to gain experience working with people and utilising my skills. I thoroughly enjoyed working in this occupation as it enabled me to build rapport with individuals, and to help people feel heard and valued for who they are. 


I am a qualified and registered Counsellor with the Australian Counselling Association (ACA). Having registration though ACA means that I am bound by their Code of Ethics. This creates accountability for Counsellors and ensures ethical practice. I also hold current Professional and Public Liability Insurance. Maintaining membership and insurance means I am required to meet their annual Supervision and Professional Development standards. I also hold clearance on Working with Vulnerable people, and have obtained a Police check. 


With the onset of Coronavirus, it occurred to me that we are all learning to adapt and connect in this new environment. I want to create a space for people to process their emotions in a safe and accessible environment. If you find yourself struggling in this time, please don’t hesitate to reach out! I am here to journey with you.
