About Me

After an extensive career working with adolescents in the Education sector, I found that many challenging issues being faced by families and young people were largely concerned with adapting to situations involving grief and loss. This led me down an amazing path of examining the impact of grief and loss, and what happens when life plans don’t go as expected.

I finished my Counselling studies in 2012, and have since been specialising further with post-graduate studies specialising in the areas of Grief and Bereavement Counselling and Intervention, as well as End of Life Counselling. Besides operating my own practice, I volunteer my time assisting with Grief Line, counselling people on a myriad of bereavement issues.

I am privileged to work with adults and adolescents who are facing the devastating sadness and despair of losing a loved one, as well as experiencing other losses. Who are trying to incorporate that loss and all its associated emotions into their lives and keep going. I am also honoured to work with people who are coming to the end of their life, by listening to their concerns and empowering them to make the choices that are right for them and their families.

My counselling sessions embrace a range of techniques including Person Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Gestalt Therapy, Existential Therapy and Mindfulness practices. Each person receives a specialised service, tailored specifically to their individualised needs, as everybody experiences their loss differently in a manner that makes sense to them. My practice lies in the belief that all people need a safe, non-judgemental space to share their story with dignity, where their experience is honoured and respected.
