Self Space Counselling is for anyone seeking support in navigating current life challenges, personal growth and transformation, healing from the past, professional development and clinical supervision.
My approach to counselling focuses on:
Engaging with warmth, curiosity, appreciation, genuine connection
Creating a space where you feel safe, supported, valued and accepted
Respecting your experience, knowledge and what feels right for you
Striving towards real transformation that creates positive, meaningful and lasting change (rather than stock-standard approaches and band-aid solutions)
I have been providing counselling services for over 15 years in both NGO and government settings in the areas of family relationships, personal development, mental health and trauma and in the provision of clinical supervision.
I am a trained IFS therapist (Level 2 through The Path Centre). I am undertaking ongoing IFS supervision, training and certification processes and regularly participate in an IFS practice group. I have a background as an EMDR therapist and experience in a diverse range of therapies including play therapy, sandplay therapy, Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy and Narrative therapy.
I have a Master of Social Work (MSW) from Monash University. I am an accredited member of the Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW) and I am committed to and bound by their code of ethics and practice standards.
