I am passionate in helping you change old outdated beliefs and behaviours that keep you from living a life YOU want. I bring a wealth of life experience and professional experience with me.
I mention life experience because I grew up in the proverbial ‘chaotic family’ system - addictive parents, family violence and time spent as a child in orphanages were the norm. Leaving school at 12 and a half years old and angry with the world I headed down a similar path. My salvation was a caring, compassionate counsellor who ‘walked beside me’ whilst I learned to let go of outdated thoughts and behaviours that kept me from living a full rich and meaningful life.
This story took place 25 years ago but I knew then that I also wanted to help others ’find their way to living the life they want’ hence, my ongoing educative and professional career.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology; Diploma in Relationship Work; Post Graduate Diploma of Psychology; and a Masters in Social Work; and numerous Certification V’s in Domestic Violence, Sexuality issues and the like obtained over the years.
In conjunction with my clinical practice I am also a member of a number of ‘Specialized Interest Groups’ that appeal to my passion for ongoing professional development
