I am a relationship counsellor and former family lawyer based in Melbourne who specialises in helping couples and individuals with all aspects of conflict and relationship wellbeing.
I trained as a lawyer at the University of Melbourne and subsequently to raising my own family returned to complete post-graduate training at Swinburne University in family therapy. I now combine my expertise and experience in these two areas.
I am trained and supervised in Sue Johnson’s Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples and in Bill Doherty’s Discernment Counselling for couples who are on the brink of separation or divorce. I have completed the Developmental Model of Couples Therapy Training and the Interdisciplinary Collaborative Practice Team Training – theory, practice and team building to work effectively in collaborative law.
I have recently completed my first year training in Somatic experiencing (and regulation of the nervous system) with particular interest in grief and trauma issues and how they impact on relationships. I hold an ongoing professional interest in the latest developments in neuroscience and links to mindfulness techniques, in which I have practiced for over 15 years.
I combine all of this with practice experience – I have helped hundreds of couples work through conflict and painful emotions as well as finding and creating loving healthy and happy relationships.
I am down to earth, intuitive, respectful and aware. I have a sense of humour, and bring a practical and realistic perspective to solving conflict. I am also profoundly sensitive, warm and empathic and have an unwavering aim to help improve the life of each and every one of my clients.
